Founded in 1951, Maison Vitteaut-Alberti specializes in Crémant de Bourgogne. The estate is based in Rully, the birthplace of Crémant. For three generations, the Vitteaut family has deployed its know-how to produce top-quality sparkling wines. As Crémant is a blended wine, it requires a flawless method to strike the right balance between Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Aligoté.

Geographical location of Domaine Vitteaut-Alberti

Maison Vitteaut-Alberti is located in Rully, in the northern part of the Côte Châlonnaise. Part of the vineyard is located in the Côte-d'Or, in the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune terroir. The estate's vineyards cover a total area of 22 hectares. The parcels are planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Aligoté and Gamay grapes. Since 2015, the domaine has vines in the Maranges appellation.

Domaine Vitteaut-Alberti wines

Vitteaut-Alberti's vines are harvested by hand. As with all Crémant de Bourgogne wines, the harvest takes place earlier than for still wines. Each grape variety is vinified and aged in oak barrels or stainless steel tanks.

Blending takes place after this initial ageing. The proportions of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Aligoté are different for each cuvée. Gas fermentation is carried out using the traditional method: in the bottle, with the addition of liqueur de tirage and yeast. After 12 to 18 months of ageing, riddling and disgorging remove impurities from the bottles. The bottles then receive their final cork.

Vitteaut-Alberti produces four types of Crémant de Bourgogne. Crémant Blanc brut is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Aligoté. Crémant Blanc de Noirs brut and Rosé brut are made exclusively from Pinot Noir. Crémant Blanc de Blancs brut is a blend of Chardonnay and Aligoté. Finally, the domaine offers a Bourgogne Mousseux rouge AOC, made from Pinot Noir and Gamay grapes.
