Stephan Tissot Cremant du Jura Extra Brut BBF Blanc des Blancs en Fut

$35.00

This is deeeelicious, with both good fruit richness and salty cut, with impressive textural sophistication. It is on my very very short list for best quality price bubbly that i’ve yet known.

Here is David Schildknecht’s review of the 2005/2006 blend, just as a point of reference:

“The three large initials on the label of Tissot’s non-vintage Cremant du Jura Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs BBF L05-06-1 – another new project – stand for “blanc de blancs eleve en fut,” in this instance older barrique. Based on vintage 2005 plus 25% of tank-fermented 2006, but only recently disgorged when I tasted it in November, this displays a lovely balance of toasted grain with fresh apple and lemon, mouthwateringly tinged with salt and chalk and delightfully wreathed in diverse flowers. As in other of the best sparkling wines of this estate, there is an impressive alliance of textural polish to finely-integrated mousse. Faintly bitter and smoky notes from lees autolysis add further interest to the lingering finish of this beauty, which will probably be worth following from bottle for at least a couple of years. Tissot’s plan is to release a BBF each year that similarly and with overlap reflects a pair of vintages, so that the 2012 release will represent 2006 blended with a small share of 2007.” 91 points for the 2005/2006 blend.
