Winemaker's Notes:

All grapes at J are hand-harvested into forty pound lugs and placed as whole clusters (no destemming) into our one-of-a-kind (Coquard) press for a gentle pressing cycle. Grape juice from the various vineyard lots is fermented and kept separately until blending decisions are made in mid-November. The cuvee (blend) was assembled in December of 2002, cold stabilized to remove excess tartrates and then bottled over the spring of 2003.

Tasting Notes:

The 2002 J Brut has a bright, exotic nose that draws you in. Hints of pear and citrus are followed by coconut, spice and yeasty aromas. The slight nutty and toasty characters blend in lending a nice balance to the fruit. There is a creamy, soft entry that unfolds into lemon cream, mixes with flavors of cinnamon and toasted chestnuts and explodes like a carnival in your mouth. Delicate bubbles lift the complex flavors across your palette and lead into a long, lush finish hinting of baked apples.
