History

The appellation Crémant d'Alsace was created in 1976 and laid down rigorous standards for the production of quality sparkling wine in Alsace.

Attributes:

Vinification

Grape Varieties: 50% Pinot Blanc + 50% Auxerrois.

This CREMANT is an EXTRA BRUT (less than 6g/l residual sugar) and aged in the bottle several years. The contact between the wine and fermentation yeast  induced a reaction called "autolyze" which liberates specific aromatic substances.

Pressing: Pressing is limited to give 100 liters of juice from 150kg of grapes (compared with 130kg of grapes for the still Alsace wines). The first fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The rest of the winemaking process follows the traditional method. The second fermentation takes place in the bottle. Average storage of 24 months in the bottle before disgorgement. Rumuage or riddling is made on computer programmed gyropalettes.

Character

Appearance: Pale straw in color with a steady stream of pinpoint bubbles.

Nose: Slightly floral.

Taste: Very dry, elegant, toasted accents with great finesse.

To Serve With: A high class CREMANT D'ALSACE for connoisseurs. To be enjoyed as an aperitif or with fine poultry.
