Lucien Albrecht Cremant d'Alsace Brut Rosé 750ML
From 100% Pinot Noir, here is a delicious, crisp, wild raspberry- and mulberry-flavored wine. The acidity shines through the fruit skin texture, giving a mouthtingling feel
Score: 87. —Roger Voss, December 01, 2010.
An elegant rosé crémant, featuring fresh cherry, strawberry and green plum notes. This is lively and balanced, with a lingering juicy finish. Drink now. 12,000 cases imported.

Non-vintage Cremant d-Alsace Brut Rose – a pure Pinot Noir – is more intriguing and distinctive. Along with strawberry and red raspberry fruit suggestions that are enhanced by the wine’s discreet hint of sweetness, there are saline, meaty, and herbal notes to add interest to both the nose and a lush palate, and the hints of salinity and bitterness in the finish make for an invigorating complement to the wine’s prominent fruit. This comes in a light-sensitive clear bottle, and I could identify no lot number, so make sure that whoever sells you a bottle will take responsibility for freshness and proper storage.
