"A richer than usual Crémant, ripe and full-bodied, with great pear and ripe apple flavors over soft acidity. There is a delicious mouthfeel, very mellifluous and rounded, with just the right acidity to give final crispness." 02/01/2011
"Christophe Mittnacht’s Crémant d’Alsace is much like his still wines—dry and precise, with finely etched minerality, and a sense of elegance that is unfortunately so rare in the wines coming out of Alsace today. Made in the méthode Champenoise, it is a blend of 50% Pinot Auxerrois, with the remainder roughly equal parts Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Gris. Its dosage is next-to-nothing, and the wine is technically an extra-brut, which makes sense, given the house style. This is not a confectionary sparkling wine whose deficiencies in ripeness are covered up by a big dosage—it’s a serious, dry crémant with a very fine mousse, expressing the carefully grown and well-ripened grapes that make it up. Certified biodynamic." -Importer
