Richoux feels these north-facing high-altitude parcels are ideal for Cremant as acidity is key! This Irancy Blancs de Noirs is racy, yet full and over-delivers on every front. Exceptional value, exceptionally tasty.
This bubbly darling is immediately friendly upon opening. It shows nice 'first pick of the season' white stone fruits, sweet lime, aperol and a sort of limestone magic. After 30 minutes or so, the wine starts to release essences of wild raspberry and strawberry, all gifted to it by its 100% Pinot Noir fruit. As difficult as it may be, you must be patient to experience this gorgeous red fruit in a sparkling white wine. This cremant is a knockout and extremely tough to beat, especially with its perfectly dainty, red berry nose.
