Domaine Andre et Mireille Tissot "Indigene" Extra Brut NV

92 Our Score
(11/2014) A blend of 50% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir, 5% Poulsard and 5% Trousseau from the master of Jura sparkling wine, Tissot. Aged 30 months on the lees with no dosage, the secondary fermentation liquid, the "Prise de Mousse," is actually Vin de Paille (the dried grape elixir that costs big bucks) This wine in Magnum is so exciting!

Domaine Andre et Mireille Tissot Cremant du Jura Extra Brut NV

91 Our Score
When our tasting panel tried this for the first time, all we could say was "wow!" The looks on our faces were priceless. Champagne is certainly not the only source in France for high quality, complex and thought provoking sparkling wines. The term Crémant is reserved for seven appellations throughout France that produce sparkling wines by the same method used in the great region of Champagne. The Jura (located due east of Burgundy and just west of the Swiss border) received approval to produce Cremant in 1995. This delicious bottling is 50% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir with the local varieties of Trousseau and Poulsard making up the remaining 10%. The wine sees no dosage (the addition of sugar after the secondary fermentation) and the result is a bone dry "extra brut" wine with crisp and mouthwatering acidity complemented by a creamy palate. The finish is lengthy with subtle hints of nuts. This is a great substitute for Champagne if you're looking to increase value without sacrificing quality. You'll find it being poured by-the-glass at some of Chicago's top restaurants such as Brindille, Sepia, The Boarding House and Pops!
