Parigot & Richard has been making cremant in Savigny-Les-Beaune for five generations in the Methode Champenoise. They pick by hand and though this is the only appellation in Burgundy allowed to blend grapes, they ferment each varietal separately. The wines are all vintage although are labeled and priced as non-vintage wines. There is a pride of place with this family, and a dedication to never compromise quality.

The great wines of Burgundy are uniquely complex, compelling and at times memorizing. Above all they are evocative, transformative but like all creatures, temperamental and anything but dependable. Two grapes dominate this agricultural masterpiece, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Both grapes achieve their greatest elegance when planted in cooler climates, to which Burgundy is the coolest and most Northern climate of all the major regions famous for red wines. When winemakers talk about Burgundy, they generally speak of terroir, the compilation of the vineyard's soil, slope, orientation, nuance of climate, etc. This concept of terroir is what makes wines produced from grapes even in the same village or vineyard strikingly different. Burgundy is a place of legend, awe and adventure, a place that wine lovers call home.
