Mission Briefing

Codename:

Agent Mommy

For this Mother’s Day, we searched high and low for today’s bubbly and we must say that we scored a brilliant, delicious French sparkling wine, worthy of Mom. We absolutely love this wine.

Nestled among the foothills of the Alps, at the eastern edge of France, along the Swiss border, Domaine Berthet–Bondet is making their unique Cremant du Jura from Chardonnay and local grape Savagnin (a relative of the Austrian Tremeiner).

This wine possesses more subtlety than American sparkling wines; carbonation is less aggressive, giving the wine more flavor and complexity. On the palate, the wine is velvet-smooth and really quite delicious.

If you love great sparkling wines, today’s wine will thrill and delight you. More importantly, it will thrill and delight your own Agent Mommy.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Beautiful light yellow with copper hints, this wine presents a continuous and energetic upward cascade of some of the most delicate bubbles we have ever seen in a sparkling wine.

Smell:

Light but very sweet and perfumed, with aromas of white acacia flower, orange blossom, bread yeast, green apple and white peach.

Taste:

Very soft in the mouth with a very creamy mousse, this wine leads with golden delicious apple, subtle lemon, white plum flower, earthy dried fig and a hint of yeasty bread dough.

Finish:

Long and very flavorful, as fruits fade, the wine takes on a softly savory glow with hints of nuttiness and the most subtle flavor of dried lemon thyme.

Pairing:

This beautiful wine would pair with almost everything, but we are especially excited to try it with a crab salad or steamed mussels in a lemongrass, fennel and garlic broth.
