Crémant du Jura: Domaine Jean-Louis Tissot
"Produced by brother and sister Jean-Christophe and Valérie Tissot in the hills above Arbois in the Jura, it's creamy, toasty with a whisper of keen citrus and a long satisfying finish. You could spend twice as much on champagne and have only half the fun."
Jonathan Ray - The Spectator.
