Nicole Deriaux produces a small amount of sparkling wine from her Chardonnay plantings. The young vines are used to produce the Crémant. The wine undergoes both alcoholic and malolactic fermentations and then spends at least eighteen months on the lies as it passes through the second fermentation in bottle (a la Champagne). Vinified entirely dry and left strictly brut at the time of disgorgment.
Nicole Deriaux’s Domaine de Montbourgeau makes up nine hectares of Chardonnay, Savagnin, Trousseau and Poulsard vines in the tiny appellation of l’Etoile (which has a total of 52 hectares of vineyards). The viticulture at Montbourgeau is organic and the vinification is strictly in line with the ancient, traditional practices of the region. Nicole Deriaux’s natural approach to every step of the process captures the true essence of the appellation in each of the separate bottlings done at the domaine.
