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
New to JN, 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."
