I found Blason de Bourgogne's Cremant sparkling wines at Trader Joe's and have really enjoyed them.  They are a fantastic value at about $10 and I think their quality rivals some domestic sparkling wines that cost twice that.  They come from the Cremant de Bourgogne appelation and the two I have tried are the Brut Reserve (yellowish/gold label) and the Blanc de Noirs (purple label).  

So I thought I would take a chance on their still wines.  The Pinot Noir Bourgogne was so-so.  But the 2009 Saint Veran was over the hill and got dumped.  Just wanted to let you all know in case you were thinking of trying their still wines.
