Winemaker Notes

A delicate, longlasting sparkle with a purety that reveals the lively freshness and aromatic quality of the original base wines. The balance is the hallmark of Bailly Lapierre Crémants: finely chiseled, carrying you away with their intense, mineral freshness. Truly an expression of Burgundy's rich heritage. Produced from organically grown grapes, it offers a natural expression of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, yet surprises with such concentration, depth and mineral edge. Outstanding bubbles.

Wine Enthusiast
Named after the delicious perfume that wafts across the vineyards in the evening, Egarade is a fine example of how close in character Crémant de Bourgogne is to many Champagnes. It has just the right steely character, crisp and structured, a very mineral feel to the aftertaste.

Bailly Lapierre
Bailly, our village here in Burgundy, is the birthplace of the AOC Crémant de Bourgogne.Since 1972, in an underground quarry providing unique natural conditions, we have produced sparkling wines that belong to a world of enchantment. They come from superb noble grapes, hand-harvested then vinified and patiently matured. Our wines, sprung from the bedrock yet finely chiselled, carryone away with their intense, truly mineral freshness.

Champagne

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, Champagne is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to be labeled ‘Champagne’ within the EU and many New World countries, a wine must originate in this northeastern region of France and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide. Well-drained limestone chalk soil defines much of the region, lending a mineral component to the wines. The climate here is marginal—ample acidity is a requirement for sparkling wine, so overripe grapes are to be avoided. Weather differences from year to year create significant variation between vintages, and in order to maintain a consistent house style, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled varietally, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, delicacy, and elegance, as well as bright and lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit, and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body, and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while one comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’
