The holidays put us in the mood for something delicious, vibrant, and festive. Something bubbly. Tonight, to match the mood, we’re popping this gorgeous pale pink-salmon Crémant d’Alsace produced by Domaine Camille Braun.
It is a rosé from Alsace made with 100% Pinot Noir, the only permitted black grape variety in this region. It comes from organic and biodynamic vineyards in and around the Village of Orschwihr.
Domaine Camille Braun is a family-run operation with roots dating back to the 1500s. Today Christophe and Chantal – a husband and wife team – are carrying forward the family legacy by making expressive wines from the beautiful terroir of Alsace.
This wine offers bright notes of raspberry, cranberry, red apple, lemon curd, dried pink rose, toasted almond, brioche, and wet stones with fine-beaded, persistent bubbles.

Tasted blind while knowing the list of wines. Guessed only the appellation. Perfumed bouquet of strawberries, earth, bitter dark chocolate and red flowers. Nice acidity, good balance. Tannin is light, which is nice. A bit feminine and beautiful wine. I enjoyed it much more during the afterparty. IMO good value and great style.

Delish! Still kicking with that subtle, musky dried fruit and herbaceous tinge. Tea, soy and dried orange peel. — 6 months ago
Needs a couple hours to develop, starts w an earthy nose and a red fruit palate, turned into a really complex and lengthy wine. — 8 months ago
