Premium sparkling from Nyetimber and Tissot

With Champagne prices skyrocketing, and supply dwindling, Nyetimber and Tissot offer premium alternatives sure to satisfy even the most enthusiastic sparkling drinkers.

Nyetimber are at the forefront of premium sparkling wine production in England, and are widely considered the finest producer in the country. For over 30 years the Nyetimber team have been driven to create a wine to rival the best sparking wines in the world, and have built up an impressive track record matching this intent. Using only estate grown fruit, their plantings of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Meunier are located on the chalk and Greensand soils of West Sussex, Hampshire and Kent. Given their northerly location, the long slow growing seasons are well suited to premium sparkling production.

While over in France, Stéphane Tissot is a tireless and vigorous promoter of individual sites and natural wines. He brings technological experience from his work in Australia and South Africa, and combines this with his ruthless yield reduction philosophy and very serious 'small batch' winemaking which is carried out as naturally as possible. While Stéphane is widely praised for his terroir driven expressions of Vin Jaune among the other wines from his home in the Jura, this sparking is no afterthought on his part. Indigène Cremant du Jura is a serious effort deserving to be mentioned alongside the finest grower Champagnes of France.
