Cremant du Jura, Chateau Bethanie

This delightful Cremant is a very exciting new find, and may cost a few pounds more than many Cremants but there is a reason for this. Tasted blind you could be forgiven for thinking that you had been served a rather more illustrious mature vintage Champagne, such is the depth of flavour. The key to this wine is the addition of a very small quantity of the local Vin jaune (oxidised sherry-like wine from the Jura) to the Cremant. The result is a wonderful combination of youthful fruit with classic yeasty flavours and a slight nutiness to the finish. This impressive fizz tastes twice as expensive than it is.
