Lucien Albrecht pioneered Crémant production in 1971 and helped gain an Appellation Contrôlêe for the wine and for Alsace. Pale lemon color, fine bubbles with a light creamy mousse and aromas of fresh stone fruit with biscuit scents. On the palate ripe apple, citrus and peachy flavors with nice mineral tones, dry with vivid acidity. Lingering finish with good balance ending with fruit, slight mineral and yeast tang. Excellent value as a Champagne alternative! Tasting Sample. — 9 days ago
I had this with an amazing bowl of ramen with a fish based broth and it was perfect. The hints of Riesling and Pinot Gris were equally awesome. A good saline quality, hint of petrol, citrus, and stone. Very well blended together. — a day ago
medium intensity with elderflower,gooseberry,grape fruit,and zesty lemon aromas.
It has very good balance between refreshing acidity and clean fruitiness.
This is a natural, but very sofisticated and has noble finess. — 4 days ago
Pale lemon with aromatic aromas of ripe stone fruits, smoky and honey spice notes. On the dry palate melon and peach flavors with honey and gentle spicy notes, crisp and fresh. Medium finish with pleasant ending enhancing the smoky character. Drinking well now, will age a bit more. Tasting Sample. — 6 days ago
Quite rich & creamy with ripe white peach, orchard apples, a bit of white flowers and tangerine zest. A underlying mineral note adds complexity. There was some naphtha at the beginning, too.
Nice creamy mouthfeel with bright, juicy acidity and a bit of slaty, steely minerality. This has impeccable balance and superb purity. Great long finish, too. A lovely wine. — 12 days ago
Pulsion Noire Alsace 2003.
A magnificent Pinot noir. After 16 years still so complex, nutty and hints of liquorice, very elegant after taste. Just delicious. The corck didn't do well after so many years though. My next move is to visit the wineyard at Mont Are Odile — 5 days ago
