Fed up after a long career as a political advisor, teacher, and author, Jean-Christophe Comor moved to Coteaux Varois en Provence, near Bandol, in 2003 to start a new life as a vigneron. With help from generous like-minded winemakers like Catherine and Pierre Breton and Marcel Richaud, he learned to farm organically, and doesn't use any chemicals in his vineyards. All harvesting is done by hand, and sorting is done in the vineyard. In the cellar, he uses natural fermentation and sulphur is kept to a minimum. He generally doesn’t fine or filter his wines and uses fiberglass tanks and oak foudres for fermentation. Jean-Christophe’s Domaine Les Terres Promises (The Promised Land) is located in the village of La Roquebrussane, 1,300 feet above sea level. His vineyards are in a microclimate between Aix-en-Provence and Côtes de Provence that has colder winters and hotter summers on eroded hillsides composed mostly of limestone with gravel and flint. This Provençal sparkler is made with 50% cinsault, 30% grenache and 20% carignan and zero dosage, making it quite brut in style. The bubbles are super light and airy with flavors of tart red fruit on a zippy, bone-dry frame. Organically grown, low-intervention, vegan.
