Review: Lucien Albrecht Cremant d’Alsace Brut Blanc de Blancs

Produced in a style similar to Champagne and made just around the corner in the Alsace region of France, Lucien Albrecht’s Cremant d’Alsace Brut Blanc de Blancs is a very lovely sparkling white wine that won’t break the bank.

Elegant and moderately to heavily fizzy, the nonvintage Brut has a very sharp apple nose to it. The body is dry and cleansing, a crisp sparkler that goes down very smoothly and with a short finish. The fruit lingers for a few seconds, then it’s gone, inviting you to take another sip. I like it best after it’s had a few minutes to decompress and let out a bit of its bubbles. Heretical, maybe, but try it in a Chardonnay glass and see what you think.

Incidentally I gave this wine the same rating at last year’s Alsace wine and cheese event, where it earned my “best of category” rating. Check it out here.
