About Cyrille Sevin

Cyrille spent most of his professional career as a math teacher in Paris, but he always dreamed of having his own vineyard. So, early in his career, he purchased a run-down home as an investment. After fixing it up, he was able to sell the home, retire, and buy some 8 hectares in the Cheverny area. Today he has 11 hectares under vine and makes natural wine, specializing in sparkling wines of elegance and power, showing that natural, Loire sparkling isn’t just about pet-nat.

About Crémant Wines

Crémant is a term used as France’s shorthand for the country’s finest dry sparkling wines made outside Champagne using the traditional method of sparkling winemaking. The term was adopted in the late 1980s when the expression méthode champenoise was outlawed by the EU (and replaced by méthode traditionnelle). The principal provenances of modern Crémants are Alsace, Bourgogne (Burgundy), Loire, and Limoux. The best sparkling wines of Luxembourg are also called Crémant. Crémant de Saumur and Crémant de Vouvray were the first non-champagne sparkling wines to use the term, and in the mid-1970s the Crémant de Loire appellation was born, soon followed by Alsace and Bourgogne. Bordeaux and Limoux joined the official Crémant appellations, created under INAO authority, in 1990, and were followed by the regions of Die in 1993, Jura in 1995, and Savoie in 2014.
