Blend: 51% Chardonnay, 41% Pinot Noir, 8% Pinot Meunier
J Cuvée 20 Brut opens with nuanced aromas of fresh sourdough bread, green apple, tangerine and almond. A dance of bubbles leads to a focused palate that delicately balances sweet and tart notes of raspberry, cherry, wild strawberry and lemon rind, whisked away by a crisp and lively finish. Pair this versatile sparkler with Asian shrimp dumplings with yuzu glaze or Stilton cheese with toasted hazelnuts.
96pts Decanter "Beautifully harmonious with intriguing layers of quince, oyster shell, citrus, plum and lime peel. A dry, soft mousse which can be enjoyed now or within the next few years."
91pts Wine Enthusiast "Broadly defined in honeysuckle, peach brioche and moderate acidity, this is a crowd-pleasing and immensely likable sparkling wine. The finish lingers on a deep, nutty tone."
90pts Wine & Spirits "Steely and vibrant, with expressive lemon, lime and mint flavors that pick up speed toward a snappy finish. Drink now."
