58% Clairette, 37% Aligoté, 5% Muscat à Petits Grains
Colour: Pale yellow with a glimmer of gold, plenty of tiny bubbles and a persistent bead.
Bouquet: Fresh and elegant – white fruit and florals with a touch of vanilla.
Palate: Fresh and lemony on the attack, opening out onto harmony and elegance, and an echo of the initial floral aromas. A long, elegant finish: pure finesse with a touch of fruit.
Jaillance is French Leading Brand of sparkling wines AOC. Historically settled in Rhône Valley, Founded in 1950 in the village of Die, by a group of passionate, forward-looking winemakers who saw cooperation as a mean to consolidate their expertise and achieve nationwide recognition for their sparkling wines. Jaillance have since expanded into Bordeaux and Loire Valley, and are gradually setting a gold standard for terroir-driven French sparkling wines, such as Crémants.
Crémant de Die was granted Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée status by decree on March 26th 1993. Jaillance’s Die vineyard is planted on the scree slopes of the Drôme Valley; the vines here thrive in altitudes of up to 700m above sea level, sheltering in the foothills of the Vercors and enjoying exceptional levels of sunshine.
This Crémant de Die is made by the Traditional Method from carefully selected, organically grown grapes and aged to extract the very best flavours for our Grande Cuvée Icône.
A refreshing change from Prosecco or Cava, although based on different grapes we believe this has the quality of a delicious light champagne.
