A Must-Try Bubbly from Jura

We have been drinking this wine a lot lately which is cool being the first Cremant du Jura I have tried.  I first brought a bottle to a birthday celebration which was promptly finished before I could take a note.  A week later I brought more to our Thanksgiving dinner and managed to take a note from the last glass. Mostly recently Lou served this at his house.  I have found that both beer and wine drinkers enjoy this.  I believe this is a fairly new selection at Neal Rosenthal, I see nothing on the website, so I do not know much about it.  Domaine Overnoy-Crinquad is a five hectare estate in Pupillin which has operated organically since 1970.  Apparently there is no relationship with Maison Pierre Overnoy.  I will update this post with any additional information, in the mean time I suggest you grab a bottle to try.  I think it appropriate for large holiday gatherings or a quiet evening by the fire.  This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

NV Domaine Overnoy-Crinquand, Rose Brut, Cremant du Jura – $25
Imported by Neal Rosenthal.  Alcohol 11.5%.  The color is a medium copper-rose.  There is a lighter nose followed by a mouth with an initial burst of acidity then immediate hard bubbles which dissipate into a fine mousse.  A textured wine is revealed with earthy red fruit, evocative of an aged Bordeaux, somewhat ripe, red floral fruit, then a yeasty hint.  The flavors become sweeter towards the finish in this ultimately satisfying wine.  *** Now-2017.
