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 »

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
