IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Francois Montand, a descendent of a long line of winemakers from Champagne, moved to the Jura region in the 1940s and began making sparkling wines according to the traditional Champagne method. He soon became regarded as a Jura specialist and was instrumental in the creation of the Cremant du Jura AOC. Today, Francois Montand wines are still produced in the Jura region with strict adherence to Methode Traditionnelle, and a rigorous selection of the best grapes to offer fresh and fruity quality sparkling wine for the pleasure of all. The Colombard and Ugni Blanc vineyards are located in the Gascony region in Southwest France where the climate is influenced by the Atlantic, and the soils are alluvial with clay and sand. The Chardonnay vineyards are in the Jura region, located on the west facing slopes of the Jura Mountain oriented to Southwest. Here, the climate is continental with many similarities to Burgundy and the soils are mostly clay and limestone with some marl deposits.

Really well made in the classic Champagne Method. Aged horizontally at least for 9 months. The difference between a Francois Montand Brut and an Extra-Brut is the dose of additional sugar that is added. The Francois Montand Extra-Brut has more added sugar during the ’degorgement’ and this provides sweetness.

Serve with cold starters with vegetables, terrine or goat’s cheese. With cooked or raw seafood, hot or cold shellfish. It is also a good accompaniment for white meat, oriental and spicy food (curry, Thai, Indian…) and dessert made with nuts, hazelnuts and walnuts. Serving temperature: 43 to 46°F. Cellar life: 1 to 2 years.
