Our J Cuvée 20 Brut opens with nuanced aromas of toasted almond, followed by notes of Braeburn apple, dried cranberry and ginger snap. A delicate dance of bubbles leads to a soft palate with flavors of lemon meringue pie, as the wine’s creaminess is whisked away by a lively finish. Pair this versatile sparkler with Dungeness crab cake or lobster roll, fresh popped white cheddar popcorn or goat cheese rolled with herbes d’provence.

Our signature J Cuvée 20 non-vintage Brut proudly displays an exceptional and stylish assemblage that can only be created from the finest cool-climate vineyard sites in the Russian River Valley.
The grapes for this cuvée were hand-harvested into small quarter-ton bins and placed as whole clusters, without destemming, into our French Coquard press for a gentle, low-pressure pressing to minimize the breakdown of grape skins and seeds. Each vineyard lot was fermented and kept separate until blending. Ultimately, our cuvée was assembled and cold-stabilized to remove excess tartrates and then bottled in the spring.
As is customary for traditional method sparkling wine production, the secondary fermentation occurred in the bottle. The wine was aged en tirage in our cool cellars for an average of 24 months, developing deeper complexity as the months went by. Bottles were carefully riddled to remove the yeast sediment prior to disgorgement. Following, the wine was aged for an additional six months on the cork before release.
