Crémant du Jura Brut NV
"Nicole Deriaux produces a small amount of sparkling wine from her Chardonnay plantings. The young vines are used to produce the Crémant. The wine undergoes both alcoholic and malolactic fermentations and then spends at least eighteen months on the lies as it passes through the second fermentation in bottle (a la Champagne). Vinified entirely dry and left strictly Brut at the time of disgorgment." -Importer
Toast, honey, notes of burnt almond and brioche. A good value to celebrate everyday life!
A very nice, celebratory sparkling wine for a great price. Honey, apple and bread on the nose, tart and acidic green apple and white grape, light caramel and pear finish.
External Reviews for Crémant du Jura Brut
Here is a delicious sparkler from the lovely (and ever sheltered from the dangers of spoofy modern winemaking) Jura mountains. From a top producer in Étoile, the wine ressembles a Champagne in that it is yeasty and full of mineral flavors and lip-smacking acidity.
