Our J Cuvée 20 Brut Magnum opens with appealing, delicate aromas of orange blossom, honeysuckle and Anjou pear. A sparkling wine with beautiful depth and nuance, the layered, vibrant palate has notes of lemon meringue, Georgia peach, wild raspberry and dried cranberry, with hints of caramel, slivered almond candied ginger and Danish pastry developed over years of aging en tirage. Pair this versatile sparkler with roasted prawns with Romesco sauce, butternut squash soup or fresh green salad with blue cheese and persimmon. For a cheese pairing, try alongside an aged gouda with fresh red apple and a honeycomb.

The grapes for this cuvée were hand-harvested into small quarter-ton bins and placed as whole clusters, without destemming, into our French Coquard press for a gentle, low-pressure pressing to minimize the breakdown of grape skins and seeds. Each vineyard lot was fermented and kept separate until blending. Ultimately, our cuvée was assembled and cold-stabilized to remove excess tartrates and then bottled in the spring.
