NV Francois Montand Brut Blanc de Blancs

From The Producer:

Grape varieties: A cuvée of Colombard, Ugni Blanc, and Chardonnay

Geography: The vineyard, located in the Jura, is 80km long and 7km wide, with grapes planted at an average altitude of 300 meters. The vineyard spans from Champagne-Sur-Loue to Saint-Jean-d’Etreux, between the plain of Bressane and the foothills of the Jurassian plateau. It is located on the West-facing slopes of the Jura Mountain. We call this region the “Revermont” or “Bon-Pays.” Occasionally we source from additional vineyard sources outside of the Jura.

Soil: The soils are made up of limestone boulders coated with brown clays or clay with cherts from some of the original limestone boulders. The vineyard’s subsoil primarily consists of marl (iridescent red marl and green from Tria, gray marl from Lias).

Vinification: Méthode Champenoise and aged for 9 months.

Color: Pale gold with a hint of green. Fine bubbles.

Bouquet: Intense aroma of white flowers and citrus fruit.

Palate: Creamy and smooth, with lingering aromas of freshly baked bread, golden delicious apples, and Meyer lemon.

Wine & Dine: Great as an aperitif or a perfect accompaniment for ceviche, salads, white fish, or soft cheeses.

Serving temperature: 43 to 46°F.

Cellar life: 2 to 3 years.
