In 1895, the two brothers François and Albert Moingeon, vignerons in Pommard, founded MOINGEON in Nuits-Saint-Georges. In 1922, Pierre Moingeon, the only son of Albert, took the helm of the company together with Pierre Barbier, the husband of Hélène Moingeon, François and Louise’s daughter. Pierre Barbier, an engineer by trade, registered many patents which would revolutionize the “Champagne Method” including an automatic “pupitre” which automatically and slowly turn the bottle upside down in order to bring the sediment to the neck (process known as dégorgement), prototype of today’s Giro-palette.
In 1975, the company was officially renamed La Maison du Crémant following the decree which awarded the A.O.C. to white and rosé sparkling wines produced from vineyards within Burgundy. More than a century of knowledge and experience has made La Maison du Crémant one of the leading producers of Crémant de Bourgogne. The wines of La Maison du Crémant are distinctive by their authentic characteristics and quality. Vincent Sauvestre took over the running of the company in June 2003.
|Cremant de Bourgogne Blanc
Delicate, long-lasting bubbles, refreshing fruit flavors, and a hint of hazelnuts.
|Cremant de Bourgogne Rose
Delicate, long-lasting bubbles are proof of this traditional, bottle fermented, quality sparkling rosé burgundy wine. The first impression in the bouquet is of brioche followed by aromas of blackcurrants and redcurrants. Rich and long lasting flavors follow.
