François Chapuis' great grandfather established the Cave de Mancey in the north of the Mâconnais in 1929 and it's still going strong. No wonder, with wines of this calibre. We have been buying a variety of Burgundies from here for decades. Prince de Dulphey is the cellar's superb crémant, made from creamy Chardonnay, perfumed Pinot Noir and fruity Gamay, the same grape used to make Beaujolais, immediately to the south of Mâcon. François and winemaker Hervé Guichard made this fine wine according to the traditional method with the secondary fermentation in the bottle. The Prince de Dulphey is a crémant of real distinction and finesse, a delicious drop on its own or with canapés - whenever you want to create an instant party atmosphere.
