Classy Crémants

Champ Divin Crémant du Jura Brut Zéro Dosage (France)

Bubbly’s take: We ordered this one straight from a wine broker and it turned out to be a great pick. The Champ Divin house produce their wine in a lush region in the east of France, not far from the Swiss border. Being a so-called “zéro dosage” Brut (something akin to being low sugar or no-added sugar), this Crémant is a little drier than some of its peers. But it is certainly not tart and we loved the depth of flavour this characterful wine possesses. It’s sharp but not overwhelming, bold but also sophisticated. We’re looking forward to ordering another bottle or two of this in the near future.

Would go well with: Itself, as an apéritif. Alternatively, we think this would be a great choice for a cheese-based dish (perhaps a soufflé).
