Francois Montand, a descendent of a long line of winemakers from Champagne, moved to the Jura region in the 1940s and began making sparkling wines according to the traditional Champagne method. He soon became regarded as a Jura specialist and was instrumental in the creation of the Cremant du Jura AOC. Today, Francois Montand wines are still produced in the Jura region with strict adherence to Methode Traditionnelle, and a rigorous selection of the best grapes to offer fresh and fruity quality sparkling wine for the pleasure of all. The Colombard and Ugni Blanc vineyards are located in the Gascony region in Southwest France where the climate is influenced by the Atlantic, and the soils are alluvial with clay and sand. The Chardonnay vineyards are in the Jura region, located on the west facing slopes of the Jura Mountain oriented to Southwest. Here, the climate is continental with many similarities to Burgundy and the soils are mostly clay and limestone with some marl deposits.

Tasting notes
A pale gold with a hint of green and fine bubbles, the wine offers aromas of white flowers and citrus. Creamy and smooth on the palate with notes of freshly baked bread, Golden Delicious apples and Meyer lemons.

Wine maker notes
Really well made in the classic Champagne Method. Aged horizontally at least for 9 months.

Technical notes
The grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness to ensure the best balance between sugar and acidity. After careful sorting, the grapes are pressed gently to keep all the aromatic potential of the fruit. The first fermentation occurs at low temperatures with selected yeasts. After blending and bottling, the liqueur de tirage is added and the second fermentation begins. The wine is then aged horizontally for at least nine months before being disgorged and prepared for shipment.

Food pairing
Great way to start any meal, and it’s a fine accompaniment for ceviche, salads, white fish in white sauce or simply for dessert. Serving temperature: 43 to 46F. Cellar life: 2 to 3 years.
