TISSOT BRUT CREMANT DE JURA

TISSOT BRUT JURA CREMANT

From France's remote region of the Jura, sandwiched between Burgundy and Switzerland, comes the bio-dynamic (a vigorous form of organic viticulture) estate of André et Mireille Tissot. David Schildknecht, of The Wine Advocate, calls the estate's sparkling wine among the finest traditional method sparklers for the money grown anywhere in the world. We might even go so far as to say that, outside of Champagne, it is probably the finest French sparkling wine we've ever encountered. Produced in the classic, bottle-fermented method Tissot's Crémant de Jura is comprised of 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir. An aromatic dead-ringer for good Champagne, the wine has, nonetheless, its own distinctive Jurassien personality-with a nose of toasted semolina, lemon oil, cider, baker's yeast, and apricot pith, it expands beautifully on the palate with almonds, walnuts, and orchard fruits, underscored by more lemons, chalk, and a deliciously persistent, salty minerality. Very Brut with only .6% of residual sugar, this outstanding sparkler is as good as it gets short top-flight grower Champagne and is a remarkable discovery to say the least.
