Domaine Manciat-Poncet is a result of the merger of two family-owned estates: the Manciats in Charnay-lès-Mâcon and the Poncet family in Vergisson, in the appellation of Pouilly-Fuissé. The vines are all aged between 40 and 60 years and the wines display lovely depth, elegance and floral notes procured from this mature vine selection
This Manciat-Poncet Cremant de Bourgogne is produced using the Méthode Traditionnelle, this results in an amazing sparkling wine, that certainly gives Champagne a run for its money. This French non-vintage sparkling wine is made in Burgundy and therefore called Crémant de Bourgogne. It's made from a beautiful blend of 30% chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir, 20% Gamay and 20% Aligote, a traditional Burgundian white grape.
"The dry, sparkling non-vintage Cremant de Bourgogne offers up notes of orange blossoms, tangerine oil and lemon rind. Fresh, lively, medium-bodied, penetrating and long, this is a sensational value in sparkling wine. 91 Points." (Robert M Parker Jr, eRobertparker.com, Dec 2012)
"Even the unending popularity of prosecco has an upside, in that we’re now treating sparkling wine more as an everyday option than a special occasion drink. I recently came across two corkers at Northern Irish retailer JN Wine: the soft, peachy JN Sparkling NV (£13.50; 12.5% abv), which is made by Bouvet-Ladubay in Saumur and would be great for a wedding; and the pretty, pink-tinged Domaine Manciat-Poncet Crémant de Bourgogne (£15.65; 12.5% abv), which I prefer to many cheaper champagnes. You can buy both online (JN ships to the mainland), and if you buy a case, you get 10% off."
