A dazzling pink wine, the Lucien Albrecht Cremant d'Alsace Brut Rosé offers bright red fruits, a nice tangy, and life on the palate. The wine's brightness makes it a beautiful choice with a plate of raw salmon sashimi. (Tasted: October 25, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Tart apple and fresh lemon meet on the invigorating nose. The vivid palate fizzes with freshness and brings in lots of lemony brightness. The finish is harmonious, rounded, fruit-driven and dry.

Tart red currant, rhubarb and strawberry come together in a very refreshing, rounded and appetizing fashion. The frothy, foaming mousse is exuberant and highlights these strawberry shortcake flavors brilliantly, while a totally dry palate makes sure that this stays classy. This is very satisfying, fun and fruit-driven, with a serious core and a bright, lemony finish.
The grapes are hand picked. The whole cluster Pinot Noir grapes are directly pressed in a pneumatic press with a long and soft pressing, hence the coral/light pink salmon color. Cremant Rosé is made by the Champagne Methode. The second fermentation takes place in the bottle. Afterwards it stays on its lees for 9 months follow by the remuage and disgorging.
