Crémant d'Alsace "Grand Millésime" 2015
Area of production: Rouffach region
Sheltered by the highest peaks of the Vosges, the hillsides of the Rouffach region are exceptionally sunny. The composition of the subsoil, mainly limestone, provides good drainage. The exposure varies from east to south-west.
Grape varieties: Riesling (50%) Chardonnay (50%)
Geology: Clay-limestone soil
Average age of the vines: 25 years
Harvested by hand, in 20 kg boxes.
Harvest date: September 3th and 4th 2015
The wine was bottled in 2016 for the second fermentation to take place. Aging on laths lasted 4 years (46 months), which resulted in a complex aroma and great texture on the palate. The disgorgement date indicated on the label will allow you to taste this crémant according to your tastes. One year after disgorging, the wine reveals its characteristic fruity aromas. Beyond that, it develops exceptional vinosity and elegance.
Dosage: extra-brut (1 g/L)
Crémant d'Alsace is easily associated with apéritif. Why not be a little daring and try it over a meal? Made from a blend of Riesling and Chardonnay, this Crémant Grand Millésime offers a firm structure and complex aromas. Its vinosity allows for pairings with fish or white meat, or even, with a little audacity, with soft cheese such as Chaource.
