French non-Champagne Sparklers

Having abandonded my Burgundy plans, I'm now thinking inexpensive bubbles for dinner.

I have no experience w/ French sparklers other than Champagne. The restaurant offers a sparkler from Vouvray (Aubuisieres) and one from Limoux(Delmas). I can't tell if it's cremant or blanquette.

What would these be like? Same degree of bubbles as Champagne? Sweet, dry? I know I should just ask the sommelier, but I do so enjoy obsessing over things in advance ;-)
