Crémant d’Alsace Brut Lucien Albrecht is made from 100 percent Pinot Blanc grapes grown in clay-chalky soil. It is made méthode Champenoise with malolactic fermentation. Here is what you can expect. Look: Northern sunlight on a December afternoon, pale yellow, bright and transparent. This one has slightly larger bubbles than the first streaming with mid frequency for a gentle mousse that disappeared quickly. Smell: A cold winter’s day with dusty, minerally limestone and faint honey suckle. Taste: A bite of fresh grape fruit and tapioca with a silky-smooth, balanced feel. The Lucien Albrecht has a mid-length, slightly bitter finish. My full review is here: http://whatareyoudrinking.net/2010/12/budget-bubbles-select-a-delicious-sparkling-wine-for-your-holiday-party/
