Les Grands Chais de France (GCF), the largest independent wine supplier in France and leading supplier of Crémant to the UK, will present some highlights from its extensive portfolio of premium French Crémants at the Crémant Tasting hosted by Business France for members of the UK trade and press on 28 March at the Edel Assanti Gallery in central London.
As the No.1 producer in the sparkling category and present in all of France’s AOP sparkling producing regions, GCF, which remains owned and run by the Helfrich family and owns leading Crémant brands from Burgundy, Bordeaux, Limoux, Loire, Jura, Die and Alsace. Some of these leading brands, are already available in the UK, and the line up will be include; Arthur Metz (Alsace) which is the top producer of Crémant d’Alsace, François Martinot Crémant de Bourgogne (Burgundy) and Lacheteau Crémant de Loire Brut.
Crémant is an emerging category in the sparkling wine sector, made using the Traditional Method and offers true regional provenance and a wide spectrum of styles.
“Sparkling is an increasingly important part of our repertoire and there is an appetite from the trade to capitalise on these trends and the ever-growing consumer demand for sparkling wines and offer a range of Crémants from across France to encourage UK wine drinkers to explore the category further,” comments Mark Kears, Managing Director of Les Grands Chais de France.
“It is not a widely known fact that GCF is the #1 supplier of Crémant into the UK. This is something we will be focusing on communicating to the trade in 2017 so that they know they can come to us for a diverse range of this great tasting, authentically styled French sparkling wine. Our first step in this process will be to present our range of Crémants from across France at the Business France Crémant tasting.”
