Crémant d'Alsace (sparkling wine made by the traditional method). Defined in 1976, this represents 22% of total production. At the end of the last century, several companies in Alsace, established both in the vineyard area and in the cities of Strasbourg and Mulhouse, produced sparkling wines using the Champagne method. This tradition, somewhat in decline during the first half of the 20th century, was maintained until AOC Crémant d'Alsace status was awared by the decree of 24th August 1976. This decree gives Alsace wine producers the new framework necessary for the production of quality sparkling wines, with requirements that are comparable to those imposed on Champagne producers themselves. Today, over 500 producers belong to the Syndicat des Producteurs de Crémant d'Alsace (Crémant d'Alsace Producers' Union). Crémant d'Alsace owes its elegance and originality to the unique character of the grape varieties of Alsace, allied to the natural advantages enjoyed by its vineyards : a dry and sunny climate, slopes that face the rising sun, and special geological characteristics. Grapes for the production of Crémant d'Alsace are generally picked first, at the very start of the harvest, Read more »

  • So Fox, you really didn't know about cremant de Bourgogne? How about cremant d'Alsace or vin mousseux from wherever?  Lots of sparkling bubbling up all over France. Champagne is only a drop in the bucket compared to overall production around the country. But they've been superb at branding, more branding and grabbing then directing eyeballs and ... Read More

  • Dunn's almost getting ready to drink. Curious how you find the Leoville Barton. Think I've only had two from that decade. The naughties was the beginning of my distancing from Bordeaux, though it was the single region I'd drank the most of in my life to that point. Was buying for a rooftop BBQ today. Buy, transport, pop and pour, something I try... Read More

    Wine review by martins2002


  • I've tasted an entry level Turgy product and really liked it for the money. The best vintage bubbly recently was a 2002 Piper Heidsieck "Rare" blanc de blancs.  It was the most laser-like Champagne I've had in a long time as far as balance and intensity of fruit are concerned. As it warmed in the glass a generous array of stone fruits emerged wi... Read More

  • Gustave Lorentz Cremant d'Alsace NV

    Snoothrank:

    Fruity and bright with pear and apple fruit topped with a hint of clay and quinine and a touch of sweet gum. Moderately sweet on entry though with great acids keeping things fresh in the mouth. Simple and easy going with sweet yellow apple fruit. The RS here really adds some weight on the palate. Mousse dissipate fairly quickly. easy, fresh swee... Read More
