Pierre Sparr Cremant d'Alsace Brut Rosé

SKU #1059946 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The pink-colored Crémant d'Alsace Brut Rosé is 100% Pinot Noir sourced from different terroirs between Guebwiller in the South and Molsheim further north. Aged on the lees for 18 months before the disgorgement (13 grams per liter), this is a fruit-driven and charmingly sweetish, yet pretty fine sparkling wine with sweet cherry and red berry flavors. It has good freshness and a delicate tannin grip. The finish is clear, dry and even stimulating. (SR)  (2/2017)

Wine Enthusiast

 Subtle strawberry and red-apple notes create a fruit opening on the nose. The frothy palate accentuates both fruit and inherent freshness with its lively fizz. An autolytic touch of yeast joins in on the dry refreshing finish. (AK)  (12/2017)

Wine Spectator

 This balanced, easy-drinking rosé offers fresh raspberry and strawberry fruit notes, with spice and lemon pith accents riding the lively mousse. (AN, Web Only-2016)

K&L Notes

The Sparr winery has more than a little experience making wine in Alsace, having been founded by Jean Sparr back in the ’80s—the 1680s. Nine successive generations have labored to maintain and expand the family's wine estate. In more recent news, young Pierre Sparr, aged 20, assumed responsibilities for the winery in the early twentieth century. With a forward-thinking motto of “invest, progress, and maintain,” Pierre became a pioneer in estate bottling in Alsace. He maintained a sense of determination through World War II, and rebuilt his family’s beautiful domaine after a protracted battle between U.S. and German forces destroyed his village of Sigolsheim and its vineyards in late 1944. Today, Maison Pierre Sparr farms 15 hectares (37 acres) of vineyards and sources fruit from another 150 hectares (370 acres) farmed by growers who share their philosophy. One exciting new change at Pierre Sparr is the elevation of Alexandra Boudrot to the position of cellar master. Alexandra has worked in Alsace for 12 years and has a degree in winemaking from the University of Dijon. She grew up in Nuits-St-Georges and has a passion for organic and sustainable farming. The wines of Pierre Sparr represent some of the best values in Alsace.

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.
