Vinification
The grapes used to produced Crémant d'Alsace are harvested early to reach optimum balance and harmony.

Then, after 12 months minimum, they are riddled or turned so that the sediment collects in the neck of the bottles, awaiting disgorgement.

bti"Straw color. Bright, fruity, creamy aromas of green apple pastry, peaches in cream, and lemon chiffon with a supple, tangy, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an effortless, amusing, medium-long white nuts, lime-pineapple sorbet, and minerals finish with no oak. A refreshing, tangy sparkling wine that will shine at the table."

iwinereview"Made the traditional method, this 90/10 blend of Pinot Blanc and Pinot Auxerrois from the Alsace with a minimum of 12 months on the lees. Showing apple and shortbread on the nose, this Crémant has a lovely creamy, textured mouth feel and firm acidity that combine to offer unusual drinking pleasure in a wine of this price. If you’re trying to decide whether to buy a Prosecco or spend a few more dollars for this wine, I’d say go for it!"

wine enthusiast 90 pts"There is a touch of apricot tart on the nose, with notes of juicy baked fruit and buttery crust. A tarter aspect comes from green apple. The palate is fresh and wraps the lively, cleanly delineated fruit into gentle pastry aromas. The body is elegant, the finish is dry and fresh and brings out more of that wonderful apple tartness."

wine enthusiast 90 pts"Clean, poised, rounded notes of ripe, red-cheeked apples play on every front. There is something joyous and bountiful here. The frothy mousse accentuates the light-hearted but generous aspect on the dry but rounded palate, which also brings ample refreshment.- Anne Krebiehl, MW"
