TissotRosen.v. Andre et Mireille Tissot, Cremant de Jura Rose Extra Brut, Sparkling wine, France.
The Benedicte & Stephane Tissot Rose Extra Brut Rose is a thing of beauty, this sublime example of Crement de Jura really delivers and stuns for the price, this wonderful dry bubbly certainly stacks up against top Champagnes and is at a price where you can just enjoy it now, no special occasions needed to pop this almost quilt free sparkler. The Tissot Rose is crafted from Pinot Noir, Poulsard and a touch of Trousseau and it tastes and feels like a grower producer, it has depth, character and charm with luxurious layers and a fine mousse. The Andre et Mireille Tissot Crement de Jura Rose Extra Brut starts with a heady yeasty note with subtle rose water, hazelnut and mineral elements along with a touch of citrus, tart cherry and brioche, plus wet stones, strawberry and white plum. This is super tasty stuff with a gorgeous salmon/pink hue, creamy beading bubbles and vivid transparency along with serious mouth feel and lavish style. It is hard not to gush over this method traditional sparkling wine from the wilds of the Cotes du Jura, but let’s just say I highly recommend getting some, or a lot of this, I know I’ll be drinking more than a few bottles in the near future! The compelling bouquet, vibrant dry nature, a subtle complex mix of floral, fruit and savory/stony, along with class, elegance and verve make this a glorious offering from Tissot, drink from 2015 to 2020.
