Cremant de Die is a wine appellation in the Rhone region of France that was formerly encompassed in the Clairette de Die appellation. It is an appellation reserved for the production of sparkling white wines.
It lies to the east of the Rhone and the city of Lyon in the Drome département and produces some very interesting sparkling wines from the Muscat a Petit Grains and Clairette grapes.
The appellation rules dictate that Clairette must comprise at least 55% of the blend and the Muscat a Petit Grains between 5% and 10% with Aligote not more than 10%.
