Lucian Albrecht was one of the founding fathers of the Appellation Crémant d'Alsace. This wine is made exclusively from Pinot Noir. Bright pale pink in color, it reveals beautiful red fruit aromas, very fine bubbles and a full rounded palate.
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. This is delicious and just a pleasure to drink!
