Life is short and the summer is even shorter so every little reason to spark a celebration is valid… From birthdays to unbirthdays, from big life milestones to decent weather, there’s always something to cherish and with the addition of a bubbly bottle and perhaps some nibbles you can effortlessly put together a party anytime.
When choosing a sparkling wine to share, one would normally go for a fizz to match the occasion: a casual affair calls for your go-to bubbly and a special day needs something remarkable.
Cave de Lugny Cremant de Bourgogne offers outstanding quality at an every-day value. Crafted from 100% Chardonnay grapes neighbouring the Champagne region but not quite within the appellation, it is a sophisticated and crisp sparkling that regales you with the complexity and elegance that the Methode Traditionelle confers to fizz.
Expect an army of vigorous little bubbles throwing a party on your palate and aromas of zesty lemon, green apple and white peach.
On the palate, it’s balanced and reminiscent of juicy lemonade and sorbet, an ideal treat to enjoy chilled on a summer day or evening and a wonderful aperitif or seafood companion.
Cave de Lugny Cremant de Bourgogne is available at O’Briens Wine at €18.95 (on offer from €20.95).
