This multi award-winning Crémant hails from Burgundy and offers remarkable complexity for its price-point. A blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with small amounts of Gamay and Aligoté, it is pale gold in colour and offers aromas of red and citrus fruits with hints of flowers and butter. On the palate, the fruit carries through very well and this wine is full-bodied, well-structured and extremely well balanced.

CHAMPAGNE BLEND - Champagne Blend refers to one of the world's most distinctive wine styles – the sparkling wines made from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot-Meunier that are most famously associated with the Champagne region of northern France. The term, however, has come to evoke wines made in the “methode-traditionnelle” around the world. In the blend Pinot Noir adds structure and brings a certain berry-fruit nose to the blend, while the Chardonnay fleshes this out and sets the wine up for aging, particularly when the base wine is aged in oak.
VEUVE AMBAL was founded in the heart of Burgundy in 1898, by Veuve Marie Ambal, widow of a Parisian banker. Marie returned to Rully to join her brother, a wine lover and wine broker, to make wine at the time “method traditionelle” was being introduced for sparkling wines. The wines immediately gained recognition, and her descendants have continued to build on Marie’s philosophy of quality, tradition and modernity. With over 200 hectares of vineyards across Burgundy, mainly planted to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Veuve Ambal remain leaders in the production of sparkling wines today.
BURGUNDY is situated in eastern France and its vineyards produce some of the most exclusive wines on Earth. The region’s two key grape varieties are Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with Gamay and Aligote also widely grown. Chablis, situated in an isolated pocket of limestone hills, produces wold-famous white wines of a very distinctive style. Burgundy is home to several famous producers within iconic cub-regions such as Cote d'Or, Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais.
