Domaine Gueguen was only created in 2013 but making Chablis has long been part of the family. Céline Gueguen-Brocard is the daughter of the renowned Jean-Marc Brocard. They prefer the freshness of Chablis fruit, so never use oak barrels for ageing. Their wines’ frankness, friendliness and purity really spoke to us upon first tasting. This is a fabulous Cremant made using Pinot Noir only and gives notes of red apple, bramble fruits and lovely ripe flavours. A wonderful example, and a great alternative to Champagne.
RK Says "Crémant is the name for a wine vinified with Champagne methods but outside of the region of Champagne. The Chablis area produces some of the best Crémants in France and one reason is that its soil is not that dissimilar to that of Champagne's. Definitely a wine to explore which delivers excellent value for its quality.
