From the bottle:
Albrecht Cremant is made by the strictest “methode traditionelle” and we consider it one of the great specialties of our house. Our Crémant Rosé is made from 100% Pinot Noir. The flavors display nice strawberry and wild cherry fruit, with a touch of richness on the mid-palate. Ideal when served as an aperitif, it also matches fruit based desserts.
Maison Lucien Albrecht was founded in 1425 in Alsace and settled in Orschwihr in 1698. Today, our winery remains family-owned and managed. Our estate includes some of the most prestigious Alsace terroirs in the Grand Cru Pfingstberg and several superb monopoles including the famous Clos de Récollets. In our vineyards we emphasize a harmony with nature and, in our cellars minimal intervention in order to produce, in each vintage, hand-crafted wines that represent our terroir and family heritage.
The non-vintage Lucien Albrecht Crémant d’Alsace Brut Rosé begins with a wonderful aroma of strawberries and cherry along with some light floral notes, cream and a hint of fresh baked bread. The wine tastes full of rich, tart cherry; lots of strawberries; cream and a dash of salt. Crisp, refreshing and with good acidity, it is absolutely a delight on the palate. On the finish the strawberry and cream flavor continues plus some minerality comes through as well. Delicious and just a pleasure to drink!
