It’s a real and old tradition to find sparkling wines in Provence wine cooperative cellars. For Bonnieux, we developped more than 20 years ago a partnership with a Burgundy company, specialist in A.O.C. Cremant and other sparkling wines. We send white and rosé wines in vrac and we receive the sparkling wine bottles, after wine making and ageing.

The wines rests on its lees for 9 months. After ageing, the « remuage » (riddling) process allows the sediment to collect in the neck of the bottle. Now a mechanical remuage is possible thanks to gyropallette system.When the wine has completed its ageing period « sur pointes » (pointing downward), the sediment is removed. The neck of the bottle is frozen, and the block of ice containing the sediment is removed. This is the « dégorgement ».
The bottle is topped up with wine and « liqueur de dosage » according the requested sugar contant (dry or half dry).
