Production method

Cremant is produced according to the traditional method used in the Alsace region of France for the production of high quality sparkling wines. The production process begins with the grape harvest, followed by fermentation in the bottle, during which the wine is enriched with carbon dioxide. Subsequently, the bottles are left to refine on the lees for at least 12 months, to allow the wine to develop its own character and aromatic complexity. Finally, the bottles undergo the disgorgement process, during which the yeast sediment is removed, and the wine is re-capsulated and ready for marketing.

Alcohol content

11.5%

Tasting notes

The nose opens with an intense fragrance of ripe fruit, such as apples, peaches and apricots, enriched with citrus notes and a slight hint of toasted bread. On the palate, the fresh and fruity taste is balanced by a pleasant acidity and a slight sapidity, which enhance its gustatory persistence. The creamy texture and the fineness of the bubbles give the wine a sensation of softness and harmony, completing the pleasant sensation.

Possible combinations

Ideal to accompany fish, shellfish and cheese dishes, or to be tasted alone on special occasions.
