Crémant d'Alsace "Grand Millésime" 2014

Crémant d’Alsace Grand Millésime 2014

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: 25th September 2014

Vinification:
The wine was bottled in 2015 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)

Tartaric acidity: 11.5 g/L

Alcohol content: 13% / volume

Tasting Notes:

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.

Press:
91/100
- James Suckling (Août 2019) : «Plenty of apricot tart, peach pit, caramel and apple strudel. Full-bodied and quite unctuous for this category, this is a big but balanced Crémant that delivers plenty of spicy fruit. Drink now.»


95/100 - Wine Enthusiast (Décember 2019) «Apple, cream, oatmeal challah, dried mint and lemon balm on the nose of rising, bursting bubbles.
Vividly fresh the palate shows rounded flavors of maturity : a honeyed edge to that oatmeal, while citrus notions suggest dried peel.»
