Bottled at 5.5 bar pressure, it spent 18 months 'sur lattes' before disgorgement. This a a wonderful and expressive sparkling that will give many Champagne a run for its money.

Notes on the Producer

The domaine was created in 1982 when Jean-Louis Overnoy took over the family’s polyculture farm and decided to produce wine for a living. In 2014, Jean-Louis passed the baton to his son Guillaume (20yo then) who has converted the 5.5ha to organic as well as reducing the production of crémant and vins sous voile for more ouillé style wines. Guillaume also tends 2ha of 40-50yo vines above the neighbouring village of Beaufort on a stunning coteau known as the Clos Jervigny. The remaining 0.6ha are located in Cesancey and were planted by Jean-Louis in 2001. The five main Jura grapes are planted in the different locations and soil types. Guillaume's inspiration in the cellar naturally comes from his great-uncle Pierre Overnoy who he visits on a regular basis. Guillaume keeps experimenting and aims for sulphur-free winemaking which is often easier than it sounds.
