"The non-vintage Charles Duret Crémant de Bourgogne is composed of 70 percent pinot noir and 30 percent chardonnay grapes. Made in the venerable champagne method — or méthode traditionelle — this delicate, taut and paradoxically creamy sparkling wine offers uplifting aromas of biscuits and hazelnuts and enticing meadowy scents. It’s fashioned in a light, tight, satisfyingly effervescent manner, with a sense of lovely well-knit tone and presence. Flavors of toast and lime zest lead to a slightly spicy, limestone-etched finish. Very Good+ and Great Value at about $20."

iwinereview"A blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay made the traditional method and aged on the lees for 9 months, the Charles Duret Crémant de Bourgogne offers a nose of pastry and orchard fruit that are mirrored on the palate with the addition of some toasty lees. It’s full in the mouth, fresh and a touch steely in character, and finishes with good length and lingering fresh flavors."

bti"Pale light steely pink color. Bright, creamy, toasty aromas of caramel vanilla scone, baked pear and apple, and white strawberry with a supple, tangy, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, delightful, medium-long caramelized lemon and lime, chalk, and pickled melon finish. A crisp, dry-yet-fruity, mouthwatering French sparkler."
