ABOUT THE PRODUCER
About Domaine Hubert Clavelin Cremant du Jura Brut
Domaine Hubert Clavelin Cremant du Jura Brut offers up a rich and toasty nose of pear, apples, wheat toast, soil and a touch of citrus peel in the upper register. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, crisp and complex, with fine mid-palate depth, pinpoint bubbles and good length and grip on the finish. This is a heavier style of sparkler, but beautifully balanced with bright acids and lovely minerality.
About Domaine Hubert Clavelin
Hubert Clavelin and his two sons have vineyards in the Côte du Jura, a small range of mountains about 30 miles to the east of the Côte D’Or in the province of the Franche-Comté. Within their holding they have a parcel of very high limestone soil that they have planted in Chardonnay and from this parcel they make their sparkling wine, Brut Comte. Their method is the same as champagne; the wine is fermented in the bottle and each bottle is hand-riddled. The care that they take is shown in the very fine quality of the Brut Comte – tasting more like a lesser, true champagne than a sparkling wine from Burgundy. This wine has received great press in The Wine Advocate and is a consistent prizewinner in France. It is ideal for parties, weddings and any celebration.
About Cremant du Jura
Crémant du Jura is the appellation for sparkling wines from the Jura region of eastern France. Created in 1995, the title covers the style of sparkling wine which has been made here since the 18th Century; it was previously sold as vin mousseux, under the region’s other appellations.
The production area covered by the Crémant du Jura title is identical to that of Côtes du Jura, its counterpart for still wines. This includes 105 communes in total, stretching for nearly 80 kilometers (50 miles) from Champagne-sur-Loue in the north to Saint-Amour in the south. Roughly 210 hectares (520 acres) of vineyards now produce these sparkling wines, which make up around one in four of all bottles sold by Jura wineries.
White Crémant du Jura is produced from a minimum of 50 percent Chardonnay, with the remainder provided by Savagnin. The rosé wines are dominated by the region’s key red varieties, Poulsard and Pinot Noir, which must constitute at least half of the encepagement. As with all other Crémant wines in France, while different grape varieties may be used, the wines are made in the méthode traditionelle, as used in Champagne, aged in bottle with their lees for a minimum of nine months.
