Domaine Mittnacht Cremant d'Alsace NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Christophe Mittnacht’s Crémant d’Alsace is much like his still wines—dry and precise, with finely etched minerality, and a sense of elegance that is unfortunately so rare in the wines coming out of Alsace today. Made in the méthode Champenoise, it is a blend of 50% Pinot Auxerrois, with the remainder roughly equal parts Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Gris. Its dosage is next-to-nothing, and the wine is technically an extra-brut, which makes sense, given the house style. This is not a confectionary sparkling wine whose deficiencies in ripeness are covered up by a big dosage—it’s a serious, dry crémant with a very fine mousse, expressing the carefully grown and well-ripened grapes that make it up.

Mineral, fresh and yeasty with sweet herbal nuance on the nose with lovely hints of butter cookies and a touch of fennel seed spice on the nose. Starting out fairly dry in the mouth, this does gain a gentle sweetness on the midpalate displaying attractive sweet/tart apple and pear fruits with a little powdered sugar accent to the butter cookie notes found on the nose. Red apple flavors emerge on the backend and linger through the fairly long if simple finish. Fruity and attractive. 86pts
