André et Mireille Tissot Crémant du Jura Extra Brut NV

FranceImpressive crémant, and among the best I've tasted from the Jura, where Crémant makes up nearly one third of wines. The numbers are similar with this biodynamic Tissot (one of many Tissots), with fizz comprising approximately one quarter of their production. This focused Extra Brut is half chardonnay with 40 percent pinot noir and the remainder split between poulsard and trousseau, with 18 spent months on the lees and with no dosage at bottling (and very little sulfur). Meringue, toast, lemon brioche on the lifted palate, tight and nervy with green apple cut and buzzy acidity, but with a depth of crushed stone and vanilla bean mergingue dust that is alluring. The finish is alive, humming and vibrant. Fantastic value for an exciting wine.Tasted: 28 February 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 30.00 private liquor stores Producer: André et Mireille TissotDistributors: That's Life Gourmet
