In Alsace, kicking off with some crémant


I’m in Alsace, and last night I began with some crémant, Alsace’s traditional method sparkling wine, of which over 30 million bottles are produced annually. Here are a few that I tried.

Dirler-Cadé Brut Nature 2013 Alsace, France
Lively and focused with nice bright citrus fruit and a hint of wax and lemon. Lovely fruity style. 89/100

Domaine Bores Blanc de Noirs Sec NV Alsace
This is quite rich and a bit sweet with nice depth to the clean pear and citrus fruit. Works well in this sweeter style. 87/100

François Schmitt Blanc de Noirs NV Alsace
Lively and bright with nice ripe apple with some cherry fruit. Has a lively, fruity personality with some savoury notes in the background. Really appealing. 90/100

Alfred Meyer Brut de Katz NV Alsace
This is 100% Auxerrois. Lively and fresh with nice citrus fruit and a bit of pithiness. Dense and fresh with a hint of herbiness and even some cherry fruit. Stylish. 89/100

Schoenheitz Brut 2008 Alsace
Zero dosage. Very fresh and tart with appealing lemony fruit. Lively and bright with lovely elegance and purity, and a lemony core. 91/100

Vincent Fleish Dame Nature Zero Dosage NV Alsace
Complex, rich and quite bold with nice lemony fruit. Spicy, ripe, appley and appealing with nice weight and richness. A really interesting wine. 90/100

Zeyssolft Brut NV Alsace
