Cremant

What happens when a wine-maker from France wants to produce sparkling wine, yet his vineyard is located far from the region of Champagne? There are no obstacles in such a case, yet such wine should be called Cremant. Production of such wines is most popular in the regions of Alsace, Bordeaux, the Loire Valley, Burgundy, Jura or Savoie. In every region, wines are produced by the traditional method with the use of grape varieties typical for a given region. Wines called in this manner have to mature for at least 12 months before the producers put them on the market. They combine best with local dishes, especially in the summer period when they wonderfully quench thirst.
