Do you know Crémant d"Alsace ?

invinoveritasThe wine review In Vino Veritas presents Crémant d"Alsace the unknown sparkling wine and a selection of the best Crémant of the region. "250 000 bottles are produced yearly in Alsace and the types are very different because of the variety of the grappes (riesling, pinot gris, chardonnay , auxerrois, pinot noir and pinot blanc). Most of the wines are Blanc de Blanc sometimes round, sometimes very dry. Every wine amateur will find his Crémant ! The 2nd reason of this large variety is the complexity of alsatian  terroir even if the lime stone clay terroir, close to the Champagne type are prefered. And third reason: the winegrowers... not all wine estate which propose some crémant make it themselve often because they don't have enough space or vineyards for this wine, also the production rules are very strict. And there are 1001 possibilities to consider terroir and vineyards, the more industrial way, the traditionnal one... The tasting shows that the quality is highly increasing also because some winegrowers like Dopff  «Au Moulin» and Muré, did a lot for the quality of Alsace crémant.  Our selection tries to show all this richness and diversity of Alsace wine region.

Cremant without sulfites noted by Vino Veritas

cremant_ss"A real unusual bottle at this organic and biodynamic domaine. An expressif terroir, 40 years old vinestocks of pinot blanc and auxerrois, mostly on sand and limon soils. After the first fermentation the wine stays on fine lies until end of april and after 18 months "sur lattes". Nos sulfites are added during the harvest, fermenting, dégorgement.  3 gramm dosage for the final touch.
A fine light gold colour for this wine with very fine bubbles, a nice vivacity and generous creme.  At the nose you will find the typicité of the fermentation but soon the flowers, grapefruit and pear tastes arrive and the constant mineralité of the taste give a good balance to this crémant. Long caudalies during the tasting, haselnuts and lime tree. This wine will enjoy the palate of real amateurs", sorry for the translation... not so good as the wine

Embotteling and vineyard work

July 16 th and 17 th: second and last embotteling for the vintage 2011, these are 2 leaf days in the biodynamic planing 2012. Pinot noir Klur, grands crus riesling and pinot gris, also gewurztraminer Klur are now ready for labeling. A lot to do in the wine cellar a few days before embotteling and the same in the vineyards because the leaves and grass growed quickly even if june was not very warm. A hail storm damage on a few vineyards but not too strong as you see it on the picture below. There is some illness, mildiou and oïdium but very local and we bring air and sun to the grappes actually. It will probably be a vintage with a small quantity of grappes: rain and coldness during the flowering. At the moment the weather is hot and dry, we have to be patient...
