The inspired addition of 2% Vin Jaune to this otherwise 100% bottle fermented Cremant gives it a richness and distinction not usually found in Cremant. Think Bollinger or Veuve.....

Tucked between the foothills of the Alps and Burgundy, the Jura is Frances most confidential vineyard region. It is also respon­sible for some of the country's most individual wines, notably the famous Vin Jaune or 'yellow wine' which is aged in barrel under the influence of flor yeast for seven years before release. This particular bottle-fermented sparkling wine comes from the Jura's largest and oldest co-operative which are referred to locally as Fruitieres. Whilst the base of the cuvee is 100% Chardonnay, the wine is given a different dimension with the inspired addition of a tiny percentage of Vin Jaune immediately prior to bottling . This delivers a beguiling complexity to both the aroma and palate. Pour it in celebration, but this Cremant works equally well at the table. It is also the ultimate sparkling wine match for the Jura's renowned Comte cheese.
