Lucien Albrecht Cremant d'Alsace "Blancs de Blanc" Ns

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Fairly citrussy on the nose, with a blade of grass accenting the cool kiwi, apple and rhubarb fruit. A touch sweet up front, this feels pretty big in the mouth, with juicy apple and Asian pear fruits that show a light green, kiwi fruit edge on the back end. A bit short on the finish, this ends abruptly, leaving just a shadow of dried lemon. 83pts

Albrecht obviously has a skill in sparkling wines, because this, like its partner ros?, is skillfully made, full of fruit and richness. This wine also has an attractive caramel touch, which gives some softness to the palate. Finishes fresh and dry. Imported by Pasternak Wine Imports.
