I enjoyed our last J sparkling bottle and figured now is as good as ever to try it.
Strawberry and bread on the nose.
Dry, but quite fruity – a lot of strawberry and cherry – as the bottle opens some subtle toast comes through. I'm also getting some almond notes mid-palate plus some very nice floral – perhaps orange blossom - notes. There's quite a few layers here and a lot going on that I can't place my finger on.
Some tartness – green apples and perhaps some citrus – lingers on the finish.
This is not a cheap bottle at $35 – but it's definitely high quality and quite interesting.
