Domaine Roger Luquet Crémant De Bourgogne Blanc De Blancs   

Burgundy A.C., France

Supremely toasty with lovely notes of fresh green apple. This is a steal that you should buy by the case if you’ve got a wedding, reunion or some other big party coming up. Crémant de Bourgogne can be made from the white wine grape Aligoté, however, winemaker Roger Luquet’s Blanc de Blancs is made only from Chardonnay grapes that grow St. Véran appellation vineyards. Finishes with notes of freshly baked bread and lime citrus. Pair with fried chicken for an extra treat tonight.
