Maison Louis Bouillot | Burgundy
Maison Louis Bouillot, located in the town of Nuits-Saint-Georges, offers the enthusiastic wine drinker a different experience of Burgundy…sparkling Burgundy! They have been specialist's in Crémant de Bourgogne since 1877, when they were among the first to experiment with sparkling wines made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes.
Crémant de Bourgogne has been an Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée since 1975. It covers a particularly large territory that stretches from the north of Burgundy to the south, covering the Chablis region, the Châtillonnais, the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise, the Côte Mâconnaise, and into the Beaujolais. Such diversity means that a wide range of different base wines can be created that reflect their terroir. This allows for the creation of subtle blends to achieve the perfect balance for each cuvée and to bring out the qualities of each varietal: Pinot Noir for fruit, structure and vinosity; Chardonnay for freshness and elegance; Gamay for tastiness; and Aligoté for vivacity.
With more than 130 years of history and expertise, creativity and respect for the terroir are the fundamentals of the Louis Bouillot philosophy. Faithful to the spirit of Louis Bouillot, the bubble creator himself, the company continues to pursue new discoveries through some delicious cuvées that are a tribute to Burgundy and its varietals.
