The history of the Albrecht family as winegrowers can be traced back to 1425 with Romanu Albrecht, who was established in the town of Thann. The fifteenth century was golden era for the Alsace wines and it was during this period that the winegrowers guild of Alsace was founded. Each year, the most deserving vinegrower was elected by the guild of the winegrowers as Bangard, a highly respected positions. It was held by 8 generations of Albrecht's, between 1520 and 1698. Domaine Albrecht experienced a major development under the guidance of Lucien Albrecht, the father of Jean, to become one of the most important in Alsace with holdings in 9 villages surounding Orschwihr. Lucien Albrecht, extended the winery with new cellars and expanded the sales of his wines in bottles. In 1972, Lucien Albrecht was also a pioneer of Cremand d'Alsace. Today the Cremant is one of their specialities and a major part of the business. 150 years were needed to make up the Domaine Albrecht located in the very best Alsace terroirs Read more »

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

    Snoothrank:

    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 Read More

  • Lucien Albrecht Riesling Alsace Aoc Cuvée Henri 2009

    Snoothrank:

    If I am going to say "OMG" to a wine, this would be it...beautiful peach aromas interlaced with some ripe pear that soothes the palette, which is subtly sweet. Finish is a bit zesty but still smooth as silk. Read More

  • Lucien Albrecht Riesling Alsace Aoc Cuvée Henri 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Relaxing apple and citrusy aromas. Smooth, buttery, and slightly acidic, with quite a kick of sweetness, this wine is great to drink by itself Read More

  • Lucien Albrecht Riesling Alsace Aoc Cuvée Henri 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Highly aromatic peach, white grape, honey and melon aromas -- very floral as well. Syrupy palate with lots of sweetness on the attack, honeyed and smooth. It's a dry wine that wants to be a sweet wine, finishes dark and earthy. Very interesting. Read More

  • Lucien Albrecht Pinot Noir Réserve 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This is rather aromatic with notes of bitter apples, quartz, dusty tree bark and a light, almost honied, spice tone with a touch of musk. Rather focused on entry, this broadens nicely on the back end where it reveals a richly fruited sweet core of fruit. Theres a touch of spice here as well, adding some complexity. The acidity is bright but well... Read More
