French cremants are usually great value alternatives to Champagne, and although often made from the local varieties they offer similar creamy textures and flavours as their more expensive cousins. This interesting blend of Auxerrois,Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Riesling is creamy and appley, but importantly it's also nice and fresh, making it a good match for spring salads. Crunchy green fruits lead to a long finish.
