Domaine Rolet Crémant du Jura Blanc Brut NV

Jura, FranceThe Rolet estate was created by Mr. Désiré Rolet in 1942, with just 4 hectares, and was taken over by his children, Eliane, Bernard, Guy and Pierre in 1958. They grew and ran the estate to be the second largest in the Jura until 2018 when they took retirement and sold to the Devillard family, well known for their Bourgogne estates. This blend of Chardonnay, Savagnin, Pinot Noir, and Poulsard was sourced from various marl-based vineyards in and around Arbois, and was whole cluster pressed with at least 6 months on lees prior to secondary fermentation. The wine rested a minimum of 3 years on lees prior to disgorgement, with 10 g/L. Creamy red and brisk green apple, crystalline lemon, grapefruit pith, stony toast, and a kiss of vanilla pod perfumes the lingering finish. The creaminess is well balanced off with a bright spire of lemony acidity.Tasted: 14 August 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 35.00 select private retailers ON 31.95 consignment: Le Sommelier Producer: Domaine Rolet Père & FilsDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
