Lucien Albrecht Cremant d'Alsace Brut Rosé
|Region||France, Alsace, Crémant d'Alsace|
Wine EnthusiastTart red currant, rhubarb and strawberry come together in a very refreshing, rounded and appetizing fashion. The frothy, foaming mousse is exuberant and highlights these strawberry shortcake flavors brilliantly, while a totally dry palate makes sure that this stays classy. This is very satisfying, fun and fruit-driven, with a serious core and a bright, lemony finish.
Wine AdvocateNon-vintage Cremant d-Alsace Brut Rose - a pure Pinot Noir - is more intriguing and distinctive. Along with strawberry and red raspberry fruit suggestions that are enhanced by the wine's discreet hint of sweetness, there are saline, meaty, and herbal notes to add interest to both the nose and a lush palate, and the hints of salinity and bitterness in the finish make for an invigorating complement to the wine's prominent fruit. This comes in a light-sensitive clear bottle, and I could identify no lot number, so make sure that whoever sells you a bottle will take responsibility for freshness and proper storage.
Wine SpectatorThere's a light earthiness to this rosé, which otherwise offers a creamy bead carrying flavors of cherry and citrus peel. Drink now. 14,000 cases imported.
