Méthode Traditionnelle, Extra Brut
The Cuvée Jean is made from Chardonnay grapes, 30% of which are barrel-aged Chardonnay, and contains 12.5% alcohol. Only 500 bottles were made of this 'limited-edition', only in magnum format.
With the Cuvée Jean, winemaker Martin pays tribute to his grandfather, who was also an avid wine and nature lover himself. It was in Jean's fields that Martin and father Yves planted the first vines of Entre-Deux-Monts in 2004. Sadly, Jean died in 2002, so he never got to walk among the vines of his grandson and godson.
A wine with ripe aromas of tropical fruit, nuts and brioche, with the barrel aging supporting the complexity. On the palate, the Cuvée Jean is broad, rich and dry but soft at the same time. Combined with the long finish, this is a gastronomic wine to serve with festive appetisers and fish dishes.
