J Vineyards & Winery Rrv Brut Late Disgorged 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine was crafted with an unrelenting passion for producing a wine of great elegance and individuality. All grapes were hand-harvested into small bins and hand loaded as whole clusters into our special Coquard champagne press for a gentle pressing cycle. Vineyard lots and press fractions were kept separate until blending decisions were made in mid-November. The blend was assembled in December of 1997, cold stabilized and then bottled over the spring of 1998.

A 25-year legacy of making exceptional wines to inspire in Sonoma County's Russian River Valley. www.JWine.com As a gutsy 25-year old woman, Judy Jordan set out on a quest to create her vision of the perfect sparkling wine. Her journey took her to Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley where she and her team masterfully crafted an elegant sparkling wine collection that was met with a passionately loyal following. Judy was inspired by Mother Nature's bounty of microclimates laced throughout J's 9 Russian River vineyards, and recognized the ability to also craft remarkable still wines. When people told her it was "impossible" for a sparkling wine house to make great still wine, it further fueled her competitive nature to bring the ultimate wine experience to life. With a commitment to innovation and a passion for wine, today we are proud to produce award-winning sparkling wines as well as highly lauded varietal still wines. www.jwine.com www.jvineyards.blogspot.com www.twitter.com/JWinery Facebook: www.facebook.com/JWinery Read less

Nice, but the bubbles have gotten lazy. Flaors OK, but it goes a bit dull. - Tasted at winery Feb 2011



Tasting Notes:

On the nose, the RRV offers warm baked biscuit, and thyme-scented honey aromas mixed with soft citrus notes of lime, Meyer lemon and tangerine. This Téte de Cuvée displays a creamy mouthfeel and intricate nuances only extended yeast contact can offer. Its full flavors round out with notes of warm spice, cinnamon and caramel that leads to a lengthy finish and just enough acidity to keep it fresh while allowing the layered structure to shine through.
