« Burgundy at the heart of the terroir »

Maison Roche de Bellene has created a range of “crémant de Bourgogne” from the Bellenos Collection. Due to their brand name, the wines from this collection pay tribute to the ancient Celtic sun god. They are the ideal introduction to Burgundy wines.
The BRUT cuvée highlights the large diversity of Burgundy terroirs. This cuvée is a blend of all the special grape varieties grown in this prestigious region - Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Gamay, Aligoté - in order to combine a good minerality, backbone and fullness as well as delicate fruit aromas.
As soon as we harvested the grapes, we gently press them in one of our pneumatic presses. We only keep the first press to elaborate this cuvée. Malolactic fermentation occurs in stainless steel vats. As soon as we get the “base wine”, we filter and cold stabilize it. Then, we add a mixture of sugar and yeast in order to give the wine its sparkle.

Secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle thanks to added sugar and yeast. The bottles are aged from 12 to 18 months on wooden wine racks.

Wine tasting: Lovely golden colour. The nose reveals typical scents of exotic fruits with citrus overtones. On the palate, it showcases delicate white flowers and pastries aromas.
