Calvet Crémant de Bordeaux is more than just a sparkling wine; it is a testament to the enduring legacy of the Calvet family.

The 2018 vintage of Calvet Crémant de Bordeaux Brut is made using the méthode champenoise, mirroring the production principles of the renowned Champagne region. This involves manual grape harvesting, secondary fermentation in the bottle, and a minimum of 12 months aging on the lees. The use of indigenous grapes like Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Semillon highlights the regional character and contributes to the wine's unique profile.

Bordeaux has been producing sparkling wines for over a century, and the Crémant de Bordeaux appellation was officially recognized in 1990. Calvet's Brut Blanc and Brut Rosé Crémant de Bordeaux are exemplary of the region's sparkling wine production, which remains a small but significant part of Bordeaux's wine output.

In conclusion, Calvet Crémant de Bordeaux is not just a sparkling wine; it's a celebration of Bordeaux's rich winemaking history and Calvet's enduring legacy. Whether you're a seasoned wine enthusiast or a newcomer to the world of sparkling wines, this Crémant de Bordeaux is a must-try. So why wait?
