Some of the world’s most expensive and famous Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays come from Burgundy, but the region’s sparkling wines are less well known.

Crémant de Bourgogne, a sparkling Burgundy, uses the main Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grape varieties, as well as other Aligote, Gamay, Melon de Bourgogne and Pinot Blanc, to produce fresh, sparkling white and rosé wines made using the traditional method. Try one of these eight examples the next time you’re looking for a spark.

They also have a delicate flavour, underlined by a fine and delicate foam. It is a harmonious wine, fresh and brilliant, with a long finish. Imports of wine warehouses. -Ann Krebil MW

Paul Chollet NV Blanc de Brant Brut (Crémant de Bourgogne); $29, 91 points. Lively notes of ripe yellow apple fill the nose of this wine with a hint of yeast.

Parigot & Richard NV La Sentinelle Extra Brut (Crémant de Bourgogne); $28, 91 points. The discreet nose of this wine presents only lemony chalk notes.

Bruno Dangin NV Cuvée Blanche (Cremain de Bourgogne); $25, 90 points. The freshness and ripeness of the flesh of the green and yellow apples meet a bright nose in this wine. The palate offers the same expressive fruit on a soft, delicate foam and a subtle, yeasty smoothness that makes this wine exceptionally easy to drink. It is refreshing, apple-scented and luminous. Transatlantic bubbles. -A.K.


Louis Bouillot NV Grande Réserve Perle des Vignes (Crémant de Bourgogne); $20, 90 points. A subtle hint of vanilla clings to the warm brioche notes in this wine’s round nose. On the palate, this roundness is absorbed in a generous embrace of concentration and freshness. The foam bubbles vigorously and resists autolytic rounding. The tasty aftertaste is dry. Boisset Collection. -A.K.

Winemakers of Mancey NV Brut Réserve (Crémant de Bourgogne); $22, 90 points. Red and yellow salad apples give a fruity nose to this wine.
