Tissot Cremant de Jura Rose

Andre-et-Mireille-Tissot-Cremant-du-Jura-RoseChampagne is expensive, and cavas are cheap but mostly only fleetingly interesting.

For middle-ground, you should look to various French sparklers, and specifically, this one.

This sparkling rose from the tiny Jura region is simply the best non-Champagne French sparkler I’ve ever had. There’s plenty of strawberries and minerals here and a hint of pleasant funky oxidation, but what sets it apart is that yeasty, dough-y goodness you find in so much Champagne.

For just over $20, that’s a deal.

I like to drink and write about wine. I'm an equal opportunity drinker, but gravitate toward France, the Pacific Northwest and up-and-comers like New York and Virginia.
