Wine Review: Lucien Albrecht always delivers a strong Cremant d'Alsace. The current release displays some up-front acidity that needs to be dialed back just a bit. Other than that, the wine is superb and on point. Nice, easy-going bubbles move aside for a flavor profile of orange rind, apricot, and white pepper. The finish is tight, but well lengthened. This is a very good value offering to consider for New Years. – Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: Yellow pale color with nice brilliance and fine, delicate bubbles. An expressive nose of floral and fresh fruits (apple, peaches and apricots). Nice maturity and ripe fruit on the palate. Dominated by the Pinot Blanc varietal, this Cremant Brut shows freshness, structure and subtleness. The Riesling adds definition to the blend where the Pinot Gris gives some creaminess and charm. Delicious at any time of the day and with many foods.
