Francois Montand, a descendent of a long line of winemakers from Champagne, moved to the Jura region in the 1940s and began making sparkling wines according to the traditional Champagne method. He soon became regarded as a Jura specialist and was instrumental in the creation of the Cremant du Jura AOC. Today, Francois Montand wines are still produced in the Jura region with strict adherence to Methode Traditionnelle, and a rigorous selection of the best grapes to offer fresh and fruity quality sparkling wine for the pleasure of all. The Colombard and Ugni Blanc vineyards are located in the Gascony region in Southwest France where the climate is influenced by the Atlantic, and the soils are alluvial with clay and sand. The Chardonnay vineyards are in the Jura region, located on the west facing slopes of the Jura Mountain oriented to Southwest. Here, the climate is continental with many similarities to Burgundy and the soils are mostly clay and limestone with some marl deposits.
Wine maker notes
Really well made in the classic Champagne Method. Aged horizontally at least for 9 months.

Technical notes
The grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness to ensure the best balance between sugar and acidity. After careful sorting, the grapes are pressed gently to keep all the aromatic potential of the fruit. The first fermentation occurs at low temperatures with selected yeasts. After blending and bottling, the liqueur de tirage is added and the second fermentation begins. The wine is then aged horizontally for at least nine months before being disgorged and prepared for shipment.

Food pairing
Great way to start any meal, and it’s a fine accompaniment for ceviche, salads, white fish in white sauce or simply for dessert. Serving temperature: 43 to 46F. Cellar life: 2 to 3 years.

Producer
Francois Montand, descendant of a long line of winemakers, grew up on his family’s vineyard in Champagne. Fascinated from an early age by wine, he became one of the most influential wine merchants in the region. In the early 1940s, during the Second World War, Francois Montand chose to leave his native Champagne for the Jura. At this time, this region belonged to the ”Zone Libre” (Free Zone). The crossing of the demarcation line was a dangerous risk. Francois Montand crossed this line via the town of Dole, a county town massively occupied by the German army. The master cellar took only few vines with him to replant in the Jura. Moving to the Jura vineyards allowed Francois Montand to keep the views and beliefs of his winemaking style. The Jura, one of the oldest vineyards in France, permits Francois Montand to restart a new life and to make incredible sparkling wine signature of the Francois Montand name… The soil of Jura, composed of limestone and glacial moraines, provides the wine a unique wealth of character. Moreover, the climate in this region is harsh in the winter and irregular in the summer, which gives an inimitable taste to the wine. All these specificities come together to offer the best quality wines which Francois Montand is looking for and convince him to continue the family tradition in this region. He never gets back to Champagne. Thanks to his expertise from Champagne, he produced sparkling wines rich in flavour made according to the traditional bottle double fermentation method. The Francois Montand wines are still produced with strict adherence to this traditional method, with a rigorous selection of the best grapes to offer fresh and fruity quality sparkling wine for the pleasure of most.
