Cremant d’Alsace Brut Blanc de Noirs

16,10 

The Pinot Noir is the only grape-variety used to produce the Rosé Crémants of Alsace which are so charming and delicate. A dry and gently fruity wine with harmonious foam, it produces notes of red flesh fruits and a finale enhanced by a touch of vanilla flavor.
Perfect for aperitifs, it goes well also with light white meat, such as chicken seasoned with spices. Its fruity notes also go well with dainty pies and fruit cocktails.

WINE MAKING
Cremant  wine-making is a complex process and requires real know-how. Indeed, once the traditional fermentation in casks is completed, a second fermentation is begun. It takes place in the bottle and produces carbon dioxide gas. The confined gas gives sparkle to the wine; which is why this stage is called the “sparkling onset”. After an ageing period of 15 months, the bottles are rotated from the horizontal to the vertical position so that the yeast deposit will descend to the neck of the bottle to be removed. After having been frozen, it is ejected by natural pressure. The bottle is then sealed with a wire cap.
