Tasting Notes

Served chilled, Cremant d’Alsace is a lovely aperitif and adds a special touch to cocktails requiring sparkling wine. Also pairs beautifully along side semi-soft cheeses, shellfish and chowders.

Winemaker Notes

The grapes are carefully selected and vinified according to the “Methode Champenoise.” After traditional fermentation “vin de base” in tanks, a second fermentation (“prise de mousse”) takes place in the cool, winery cellars. Ageng is done “sur lie” with daily bottle rotation, going from a horizontal to vertical position, in order for the yeast deposit to accumulate in the neck of the bottle. At the time of “degorgement,” the neck is frozen and, enclosed in ice, the sediment is ejected by natural pressure, after which the bottle is corked and wired.
