Hubert Meyer Cremant d' Alsace

SKU #1123442

This bright and fresh Cremant d'Alsace is composed of 100% Pinot Blanc, vinified in the Traditional Method with 18 months aging sur latte. Hubert Meyer harvests their Pinot Blanc fruit destined for Cremant early, to capture optimum acidity. It offers a delicate nose of pear and stone fruit, very pure and clean, with hints of honey and minerals. Harmoniously balanced, this is best when young and fresh but can be kept for a few years to allow for added richness to develop on the palate. This versatile sparkler is wonderful served chilled, with or without food!

Love this! A crisp and refreshing 100% Pinot Blanc Cremant d'Alsace with vibrant acidity and minerality driving delicate pear and apricot aromas and flavors. This is a new go-to sparkler under $20 for me, delightful on its own or with a variety of foods. Try it with sushi!

Wonderfully clean, lithe, and elegant bubbly. Hints of stonefruit dance in now and again. This is a perfect Spring time sipper if there ever was such a thing. Really great wine for the price.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Pinot Blanc

- Also known as Pinot Bianco in Italy and Weissburgunder in Germany and Austria, Pinot Blanc is thought to be a mutation of Pinot Gris (which is said to be a lighter mutation of Pinot Noir). While the varietal's roots are Burgundian (it was frequently confused with Chardonnay throughout history) it is rare there these days, instead finding its best iterations in France's Alsace, Germany's Pfalz and Baden, Austria's Wachau and in Italy's Trentino-Alto Adige, Veneto, Friuli and Lombardy winegrowing regions. It produces full-bodied whites with relatively high acidity, yeasty citrus and appley aromas and flavors and hints of spice. Aged Pinot Blancs take on lovely honeyed tones.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Alsace

- A region and appellation in France that has been a part of both France and Germany throughout history. Geologically isolated from both countries, Alsace has also maintained much of its own culture and wine tradition, while also being influenced by the traditions of both countries. Alsatian wine is easily recognized by it traditional tall bottles. Alsatian wine makers produce a unique style of varietal wine, 90 percent of which is white.
