Two Crémants from Jura | The Quebec Journal

There is Crémant du Jura and there is Crémant du Jura from Stéphane Tissot. This exceptional winemaker joined the Arbois family estate in 1989 and increased the surface area of ​​the vineyard to 50 hectares, certified biodynamic since 2004. The approach in the cellar is minimally interventionist, without any input, other than a little SO2 at bottling. Natural wines of exemplary clarity.

Beyond the effervescence, Stéphane Tissot’s crémants translate a terroir. Fruit of a blend of Chardonnay (50%), Pinot Noir (40%), Poulsard and Trousseau, partially aged in barrels, its zero-dosage Crémant leaves no doubt from the first nose: it is a wine of Jura. The texture is full and winey, but chiseled and tense; the palate is tasty, complex and very long. Moreover, the opened bottle was perhaps shaken and showed a slight reduction in the finish, but that does not change the pleasure felt. A lively and vibrant wine.

Like the previous Crémant, this rosé is a wine before being a sparkling wine. This is how it should be approached. Stéphane Tissot subjects his blend of Pinot Noir, Trousseau and Poulsard to direct pressing and produces a remarkably structured wine rich in nuances of red and black fruits, between morello cherry and wild strawberry. The palate is vinous, distinguished and elegant. Superb quality!
