Aldi, Exquisite Collection, Crémant du Jura, Jura, 2015
(at Skyloft, London, 26 Feb 2018)
Drinking Window: 2018 - 2020
Jura is fast becoming one of France's trendiest wine regions, and this great value example of the local fizz is developing a bit of a cult following at Aldi, apparently. It's easy to see why - it's different enough to stand out from the usual suspects of sub-£20 Champagne, Prosecco and other French cremants; it's also well-priced at £7.99; and most importantly, it tastes great. The full-flavoured, creamy character with lemon and green apple flavours develops richer notes of spiced apple and tangerine as it works through your mouth, lifted by some fresh acidity. Part of Aldi's core range.
