Chablis is an isolated island of vineyards in the northern section of wine-producing Burgundy halfway between Dijon and Paris. Simonnet-Febvre have produced sparkling wines in the Chablis region since their foundation in 1845. Crémant de Bourgogne is produced using the traditional method where the bubbles are created by an in-bottle secondary fermentation. This Cremant de Bourgogne is a blend of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir. Once in bottle it is matured for a minimum of 24 months before it is released ensuring a fine mousse
(bubbles) and a rounded palate.

The average age of the vines are 20 years with an average yield of 65 hl/ha.
