A long, elegant finish: pure finesse with a touch of fruit.

Terroir and winemaking-

Crémant de Die was granted Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée status by decree on March 26th 1993.
Jaillance’s Die vineyard is planted on the scree slopes of the Drôme Valley; the vines here thrive in altitudes of up to 700m above sea level, sheltering in the foothills of the Vercors and enjoying exceptional levels of sunshine.

This Crémant de Die is made by the Traditional Method from carefully selected, organically grown grapes and aged sur lattes to extract the very best flavours for this Grande Cuvée Icône.

Limited edition vintage wine in individually numbered bottles.

Grape varieties:
A harmonious blend of three varieties, 60% Clairette Blanche, 35% Aligoté and 5% Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains.

Food pairing:
A superb aperitif, Crémant de Die Icône is the perfect partner for olive tapenade on toast.
It also goes well with fish or poultry dishes.


Can be cellared for up to 3 years
Serve at 7°C
