WINEMAKING The harvest for the Crémant d’Alsace starts a few days earlier than the harvest for the still wines in order to preserve acidity and freshness. Lucien Albrecht Brut Rosé is made from 100% Pinot Noir free-run juice. The whole cluster hand picked grapes, are softly pressed in a pneumatic press, hence the coral, light pink salmon color. Lucien Albrecht Brut Rosé is made by using the same methods as in Champagne, i.e “methode traditionnelle”. After the second fermentation in the bottle, lee ageing lasts for 14-16 months, followed by remuage and disgorging. TASTING NOTES The flavors display nice strawberry and wild cherry fruit, with a touch of richness on the mid palate. It is balanced with dry, crisp acidity and complimented with a creamy texture and long finish.
