Cremant de Bourgogne, Domaine des Gandines NV (Burgundy, France)

Biodynamic Chardonnay. This is a lovely, natural expression of Crémant. Fine bubbles complement a creamy lees character and a spritsy nose. The palate has a gorgeous balance of fresh citrus and softer, more plush notes of apple and baking spice. A low intervention alternative for a celebration-worthy classic.
