ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
Parigot & Richard has been producing fine Crémant in Burgundy for five generations, and remains one of the very few domaines that focuses exclusively on these wines. Located in Savigny-lès-Beaune, with vineyards in both the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune, Parigot is today directed by Grégory Georger, the current generation’s torchbearer. He adheres precisely in every respect to the traditional Méthode Champenoise, from hand-harvesting, pressing and fermentation, even hand-riddling.
