From: Jura, Burgundy, France
Varietal: 70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes: Seven generations of savoir-faire are behind this Crémant du Jura as seductive as it is thirst-quenching. In the glass, an ode to elegance: pale yellow with silvery green flecks and an ebullient mousse, with aromas of grilled green apples, tangerines, and wildflowers. It is supple and toasty on the palate, with a radiant and dry, lifted finish. Truly refreshing.
In 1978, the 8th generation started running the winery (Jean Michel Baud and Alain Baud), and gave the company a fresh boost by creating the official estate “GAEC Baud Père et Fils”. Thanks to their tirelessly hardworking, the vineyard were progressively extended from 4 to 20 hectares of vines. It is currently their pride, namely to have experienced 38 harvests! Jean Michel Baud was in charge of the vineyard, as his brother, Alain Baud, was responsible for wine-making and trade.
January 1st, 2016, is a significant turning point as the 9th Generation has taken the reins of the estate: Bastien, 23 years old, is in charge of the vineyard and the wine-making process, while Clémentine, 25 years old, is taking care of trade and management. Since their succession, the estate has grown of 3 additional hectares. So begins a new chapter.
The Baud winery currently runs 24 hectares of vines that are spread out over 3 different appellations which are geographical indications: AOC Côtes du Jura: 15.5 ha, AOC Château-Chalon: 3.5 ha, and AOC L’Etoile: 3 ha.
The estate achieved the Terra Vitis certification in 2014 for its eco-friendly work and environmental preservation.
