Name: Pierre Sparr Cremant d'Alsace Brut Rose
Producer: Pierre Sparr
Varietal: Sparkling Blend
From the Winery:
"The Crémant Rosé brut shines in a bright salmon colour, with fine sparkles bubbling in the glass. The first aromas remember lemon peel, strawberry jam and white pepper, together with crispy mineral notes. After a while, the wine opens up to an aromatic of apricots and strawberries. On the palate overall pleasant and harmonious balanced between strong body, extract and fresh fruit-acid, which is well supported by a tasty hint soft tannins. Powerfull crémant emphasizes with great talent for an ideal barbeque-companion and marvelous for warm summer evenings."
Wine Enthusiast Review:
"Complex and spicy, with aromas of orange peel and clove complementing currant and citrus fruit in the mouth. There is more intensity of flavor here than one has a right to expect at this price point. Perfect as an apéritif."
Wine Spectator Review:
"Festive and lively, this rosé emits exuberant aromas of strawberries and raspberries. Dry on the palate, with a nicely fruity finish. Drink now. 3,500 cases made."
