AOC CRÉMANT DE BOURGOGNE ROSÉ

This rosé Crémant comes from lightly steeped Pinot Noir and Gamay
grapes. The first variety brings a winey character, the second its
unmistakeable aromas of red berry fruit. A wine for easy enjoyment
par excellence, it possesses a delicious softness free of anything
sugary. Entirely fresh and with real finesse, its mousse displays an
almost frothy, airy lightness...

AOC CRÉMANT DE BOURGOGNE PINOT NOIR

A “Blanc de Noirs”, this is Bailly Lapierre’s hallmark wine –a white made from black Pinot Noir grapes. In our villages, we love
to make our sparkle and bubbles from this great variety which is so wonderfully at home here. A Crémant of great character, its
style full, deep and powerful, with a fruitiness in the mouth that conjures up a red...

AOC CRÉMANT DE BOURGOGNE RAVIZOTTE

Here in Burgundy, Ravizotte is used in a family for that little lastborn daughter. The most zesty and refreshing of our Crémants,
with barely a trace of sweetness from the dosage, it expresses the clearcut purity of the original Pinot Noir wine. Depth and clarity are the touchstone of this “ebullient” yet taut Crémant which surprises with the force of its definite mineral edge. Noble bubbles...

About us

Company details

The caves Bailly Lapierre groups 430 winegrowers who provide the grapes for making Crémant de Bourgogne.
Average annual production is 25,000 hectolitres (1hl=100 litres)or nearly 3.5 million bottles (some 290,000 cases).
A permanent stock of 5 million bottles ensures that the quality of our Crémants de Bourgogne remains constant.
Our turnover, more than 15 million euros, continues to increase.
We sell one out of every three bottles on our export markets, notably in Germany, the USA and Great Britain.

IN THE VILLAGES THAT MAKE UP THIS SMALL WINEGROWING AREA, WHERE THE GEOLOGY OF THE SOIL
HAILS FROM KIMMERIDGIAN TIMES AND THE LANDSCAPE IS SHAPED TO THE PATTERN OF VINEYARDS AND CHERRY TREES,
OUR GREATEST PRIDE IS IN MAKING SPARKLING WINES FROM THE INIMITABLE PINOT NOIR GRAPE.
 
THE WOMEN AND MEN
Our history is the story of how here in the Auxerrois, a region in the northern part of winegrowing Burgundy, men and women over generations have shaped the land on which our vineyards grow. It is this terroir –hard yet rewarding, famed for its quality from time immemorial– that binds us together.

Plowing, clearing the furrow along the row, planting, pruning all winter long... Seventy winegrowing families devote themselves to the vines year-round to ensure that the grapes, ripening in the best possible conditions, attain their finest expression. In spring and summer, they trim the canopy and debud the old wood (the vines’ reserves thus spared from useless growth). As summer turns to autumn, they harvest the grapes by hand and bring them in to the caves Bailly Lapierre, their mutually-owned company.

Inheritors of a very long winegrowing tradition, these men and women first combined their efforts in 1972. At this time, together with others, they set up a project to create an appellation d’origine contrôlée –A.O.C.– “Crémant de Bourgogne”. In 1975, a statute officially recognised their wine: it became France’s first Crémant appellation (along with that of the Loire Valley winegrowers).

Since then they have not ceased to refine their skills, both in vineyard and winery, their wines achieving even greater purity, balance and incisive finesse... the truly noble expression of this outstandingly original terroir.
