 Sergio's Pick

Pignier’s Crémant has always been a personal favorite. It consistently has moments where it feels like an aged vintage champagne, while maintaining its distinct Jura typicity and this bottling is no different. Aromas of green apple skin, quince, brioche leap out of the glass followed by pronounced toasted almond notes that are a signature of Jura Chardonnay.

Domaine Pignier is an estate steeped in history dating back to the 13th century when Calthusian monks first started making wine in the village of Montaigu. After the French Revolution, the monks were forced into exile, and the estate was sold to the Pignier family in 1794. Today, the estate is run by siblings, Jean-Etienne, Antoine and Marie Florence Pignier, who split the responsibilities of the winery. The Pigniers are strongly rooted in Biodynamics and are one of the few properties to grow, dry and prepare the majority of all of their BD preps and tisanes at the estate, using rain water collected by large underground cisterns.
