Wine of the Week:
Lucien Albrecht Cremant d’Alsace Brut Rose
Wine Tasting Notes:
Pale pink sparkling wine made from a blend of Pinot Auxerrois and Pinot Blanc grown in clay/chalk soils in the warmer southern Alsace region. Lucien’s website has the following rather curious description: ‘Attractive sober colour, flowery nose, fine and persistent head, very elegant and balanced mouth’ . I found it pleasantly dry and delicate with appealing hints of cherry and strawberry – just the thing for summer picnics.
