Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret Crémant de Bourgogne Cuvée Chloé
The sparkling wine of Burgundy enters history in 1830 under the pen of Musset who celebrates it in the “Secret Thoughts of Raphael”.
The origin of sparkling wines in Burgundy dates back to the XIXth century, the elaboration and the means of vinification made it possible to produce a “sparkling” wine by converting beautiful cuvées of Pinot Noir from the Côte de Nuits. In the 20th century a lot of mediocre wines were made, so producers undertook to restore the quality and image of their wine, which became the Crémant de Bourgogne, based on an elaboration according to the exact Champagne method known today. The sparkling wine completely disappeared in 1985.
