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 Pinot Blanc Alsace Aoc 2008


    Bright honey straw, with aromas of green melon rind and apples, brought together on the palate with moderately bright acid and a kiss of minerality. Read More

  • Lucien Albrecht Gewürztraminer Alsace Aoc 2007


    Straw bright, aromas of summer flowers, focused, with good balance in flavors of green tropical fruits, wet hay, wet stone, with minerals and lychee, with a moderate to long finish. A star at Thanksgiving! Read More

  • Lucien Albrecht Pinot Blanc Alsace Aoc 2009


    OK, this might be the worst wine I've ever had given it's supposed potential. That is, it's not Alice White; It's got some pedigree - esteemed "house" from France, etc... But one day after opening it, it was a mix of gentle floral hints and vomit. Even on the first day, it was kind of gross. I have tried this wine a few times, and each time ... Read More

    Not much nose, which keeps this from being a five. Buttery/rich palate/texture, with sweet apple notes and assertive but balanced acidic backbone. Read More

  • Lucien Albrecht Gewürztraminer Alsace Aoc Reserve 2005


    Lots of honey and honeycomb, beeswax and dried apricots on the nose. Off-dry on the palate, with just a kiss of oak and lots of honey and spices like allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. This wine is huge for a Gewurztraminer, and has a chewy characteristic. Voluptuous and curvy, it's definitely not your typical Gewurztraminer, it's pure Als... Read More
