Bruno Dangin Crémant de Bourgogne "Blanche" NV 375 ml.

Cuvée Blanche is a Blanc de Noirs (100% Pinot Noir) from 30+ year old vines and is aged nearly 3 years sur latte. Lightly toasty, wonderfully fresh & fine, it’s a bubbly that is sophisticated enough for special celebrations but affordable enough for almost any occasion.

Although this is technically a simple Crémant, it drinks much more like the Pinot Noir based bubblies from the Aube in southern Champagne in terms of its length and complexity. The soils in Dangin’s vineyards, which he farms organically, are identical to what you find across the Champagne border. There’s a purity and delicacy to the wispy red fruits on display and a cleansing, chalky sensation to the lengthy finish that is on the level of Champagne at twice the price.

This is a bubbly you can drink on a daily basis without breaking the bank. You simply won’t find a better value in the world of sparkling wine.

Bruno Dangin is a oenologist formed in the Champagne area, with the experience of many generations of Aube winegrowers. After 40 years of service in the cellar of Paul Dangin, Champagne producer, the idea that led him to found a new Maison is the one to found a new environmentally-friendly company.

He Bought some land in Borgona, in the Cote d’Or, characterized by a mix of clay and limestone that remind the Champagne soils. We are in the AOC of Cremant de Bourgogne, with wines of complex architecture that reflect the land. Fragrance and depth of flavors amalgamated with a pleasant creaminess on the palate.

Though this bottle may not technically be from Champagne, but Molesme, the small town that the Dangin family call home, sits just a stone’s throw south from Champagne proper. Up until 1919 the producers here actually had the right to make Champagne. The soils in Dangin’s vineyards, which he farms organically, are identical to what you find across the Champagne border in the Aube. In the cellar these bottles are treated exactly as you’d expect from a top grower-producer in Champagne. The wines ooze class and complexity, and every time we take one of these bottles home for ourselves (often), we almost have to laugh at how much satisfaction they deliver for such a modest price.
