A blend of typical Alsatian varieties Pinot Gris, Auxerrois and Pinot Blanc made in the traditional method for added depth and complexity. AOP rules dictate that Crémant d’Alsace must be kept on the lees for at least 9 months. Whereas, with characteristic Turckheim care and dedication to doing things properly, the wine for this cuvée will spend anything from 12 to 18 months quietly maturing on the lees.
Expressive and lively, this has aromas of baked apples with bright, fresh acidity and a delicious, rounded finish. And with less pressure than you find in a Champagne, the bubbles lend a lovely, soft texture to the wine which makes it even more moreish.
This makes an elegant aperitif as well as lending itself well to grilled seafood, roast chicken and fruit pastry desserts.
