NV Domaine Saint-Rémy Crémant d'Alsace "Cuvée Prestige", Alsace, France
ABOUT THIS WINE
After hand picking, the grapes are pressed immediately to extract the maximum aromatics and retain their bright fruit qualities. After 6 months on lees, the base wine is bottled and undergoes the second fermentation. It stays on lattes for 3 years. A blend of 50% Pinot Auxerrois, 40% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Noir. Lovely notes of ripe mirabelle plum and yellow apple on the nose. The palate adds citrus notes with a delicate fine mousse. This is a lovely, dry and invigorating aperitif.
