  • Crémant de Die Brut Cuvée de Minuit - Dry - Monge Granon

    Crémant de Die Brut Cuvée de Minuit

    SPECIFICITY : developed from a selection of cellar master this Crémant de Die is a vintage in limited edition. Raised with special care, this wine reveals as it ages the complexity of its subtle and delicate flavors.

    TERROIR : at the foot of the Vercors range along the Drôme river, on its rocky and steep slopes – among the highest in France – our vineyard enjoys a sharply contrasted climate. Severe winters and dry summers mould its flamboyant features under the bright sunshine of Provence.

    SOIL : clay-limestone

    GRAPE VARIETY : 83% Clairette Blanche, 15% Aligoté , 2% Muscat à petits grains.

    WINE-MAKING PROCESS : entirely gathered by hand, the Crémant de Die Brut is made using the Traditional Method. After an initial fermentation in tanks, the wine is bottled and the addition of a tirage liqueur made of sugars and selected yeasts triggers off a second fermentation. The maturing process takes one to three years on slats. Adding an expedition liqueur, after the removal of sediments by freezing bottlenecks and disgorging, ends up the process.

    COLOUR : beautiful pale yellow colour with green reflections

    BOUQUET : mild notes of fresh almonds and white flowers

    PALATE : its aromas are enhanced by a hint of citrus fruit

    FOOD & WINE PAIRING : perfect as an aperitif, on its own or in a kir cocktail, it can also be enjoyed throughout an entire meal on fish or white meats.
