Sparkling wine is doing well at the moment. More and more consumers want to treat themselves to bubbles and not only when there is a party. In addition to Champagne, many French wine regions make quality sparkling wine. Burgundy is one and the other day, on 26th of May, one of the top producers of sparkling wine in Burgundy, Maison Boisset in Nuits-Saint-Georges, celebrated the 20th anniversary of its first sparkling wine. Now the house makes 10.5 million bottles of sparkling. 2.5 million of these are Crémant de Bourgogne under the familiar name of Louis Bouillot.
Boisset’s plan is to almost double its production of Crémant de Bourgogne. For that they need the grapes. With the promise of long contracts of 10 or 15 years, they will try to attract growers around Burgundy, and especially in southern Beaujolais, to deliver grapes.
The total production of Crémant de Bourgogne is nearly 18 million bottles a year.
