Wolfberger Cremant d'Alsace Rose Brut
Wolfberger
France - Alsace   

The wines from Alsace date back to 589 A.D., but Cremant d’Alsace has more recent beginnings, starting in 1900.  Dopff au Moulin (founded in 1574) was the first to produce Cremant d’Alsace in the Method Champenoise style.  Cremant d’Alsace received AOC status for sparkling wine in 1976.  Two types of Cremant are produced today, resulting in about 2.5 million+ cases of Cremant d’Alsace production annually:

  • Cremant d’Alsace, Brut – represents the majority of Cremant d' Alsace production. Uses Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Auxerrois, and Chardonnay.
  • Cremant d’Alsace, Brut Rosé – much rarer, as it is 100% Pinot Noir only.

Wolfberger's Cremant d'Alsace Rose Brut displays a lovely delicate salmon color with active, small bubbles. Round and full-bodied, this Cremant Rose displays beautiful watermelon and strawberry aromas cascading in a smooth finish. A minimum of 15 months bottle aging before disgorging ensures ripeness.

bti"Medium silvery pink color. Bright, interesting, savory aromas of pickled cherries and carrots, vanilla nut brittle, and pomegranate molasses and vinegar with a soft, racy, spritzy, dryish medium body and a tingling, engaging, breezy cranberry chutney and spiced lemon finish with fruit tannins and no oak. A mouthwatering, savory rose sparkler that will shine at the table."
