Hundreds of wine-growing families from the Cote Chalonnaise decided to pool their talents and resources to form 'The Cave des Vignerons de Buxy' in 1931. Working together, the members perfected the techniques from their forefathers whilst upholding a commitment to quality and environmental harmony. Thanks to the fruit of their labours, passion for their profession and their deep attachment to the soil, these winegrowers have managed to bring out all the character of their land.

The growing and harvesting of the grapes is rigorously monitored and controlled. The team of specialists using modern grape-growing and wine-making techniques can rely on their perfect knowledge of what is going on in the field to develop authentic wines which capture the taste of the land of the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais.

For ABFW customers, Cave des Vignerons de Buxy is best known for its Crémant de Bourgogne, a sparkling wine produced in the method traditionelle, which has become an ambassador for the style.

Crémant de Bourgogne Bailly Lapierre Reserve

Origin: Buxy, Burgundy, France

Combination of four principal types of burgundy grapes. It is composed mostly of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay (80%), and completed by Gamay and Aligoté. The many land faults that cross the property give rise to many different types of terrain in regards to their nature, orientation, and age. The vines are situated on the cote Chalonnais and to the north of the Mâcon region. The grapes are grown on calcareous and siliceous soil in the Burgundy region. Bailly is the birthplace of the AOC Cremant de Bourgogne. Since 1972, in an underground quarry providing natural conditions, Bailly have produced sparkling wines that belong to a world of enchantment.

Winemaker's Notes

Fine, elegant bubbles, a fruity nose and a fine balance between acidity and roundness. A suave, racy finish. An easy drinking, thirst quenching Cremant. Clearcut and clean with a lovely freshness. Easily enjoyed on it's own.

Very intense colour, with hints of ruby. This wine offers a wide palette of aromas dominated by morello cherry and red fruits. After several months, hints of smoke and leather appear. Its structure is finely balanced with harmonious tannin.

This wine may be enjoyed young and it is also ideal for laying down.
