2013 LUCIEN ALBRECHT 1698 BRUT (CHARDONNAY) CREMANT D’ALSACE
If you enjoy everything there is about Champagne other than the price tag, Alsatian Crémants should be on your radar… After all, they are high-quality sparkling wines from France that originate from areas outside of the Champagne region. And did you know that the Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée Crémant d’Alsace shares a similar climate and terroir to Champagne, and both regions hail from Northeastern France. If that’s not enough to pique your interest, consider that this vintage Cremant was made with 100% Chardonnay grapes, and was crafted in the same traditional methods used in Champagne production, where the secondary fermentation occurs inside the bottle. In reality, finding a vintage Champagne of this quality, and in this affordable price range would be extremely difficult to say the least.
Lucien Albrecht is one of the pioneers of high-quality, and traditionally crafted Alsatian Crémants, and has a 40 year history of outstanding wines. The wines became even more popular in 1976 when Crémant d’Alsace became an official Appellation d’Origine, but to this day around 75% of Crémant d’Alsace never leaves France. This is because it’s a local favorite for both quality and value. Here’s an opportunity to taste one of the best examples of vintage Crémant d’Alsace that I’ve ever tasted. This wine stands out for having stunning depth, brilliant detail, and lively acidity…
