Get to know: Badoz, Cremant de Jura Blanc de Blancs Brut NV
A beautiful Crémant sparkling wine from Jura, made using Chardonnay grapes that has lots of crisp minerality and an elegant texture. A light fizz emphasizes toasty and lemony notes on the nose which follow on to the perfectly balanced palate.
The Badoz family have been vignerons in Poligny, in the heard of Jura since 1659, transferring traditional winemaking techniques and local know-how from father to son for more than 10 generations. In 1970 Bernard Badoz set about a varietal re-planting programme to match varietals with the different soils found in the ‘Roussots’ vineyards of the family domaine. This rigorous work enabled him to develop high end wines combining an expression of grape varietal with that of terroir. In 2003 his son Benoit took over and brought about further changes and new wines which further improved the overall quality.
