Review: NV JJ Vincent Cremant de Bourgogne Brut

France may be home to the king of sparkling wines, but that region isn’t the only one were French sparklers are made: JJ Vincent’s nonvintage Cremant de Bourgogne hails from southern Burgundy, many miles away from the hallowed vineyards of Champagne.

This Cremant de Bourgogne is made from Chardonnay, a brut wine that offers somewhat less fizziness than your typical Champagne, plus an abundance of fruit. Figs, pears, and a little pineapple offer really ripe flavors, and here the bubbles complement that well. Not yeasty or overloaded with bread notes, the JJ Vincent is refreshing and offers just a hint of sweetness — though the round body makes it less of a tart aperitif and instead a bit of a meal unto itself.
