2016 Charles Baur Cremant Rosé d'Alsace

SKU #1417111

Stephan Reinhardt writes in The Wine Advocate: "The domain of Armand Baur and his son, Arnaud, is located in Eguisheim. They cultivate 18 hectares of vineyards surrounding the picturesque village south of Colmar, including the grand cru vineyards Pfersigberg (one hectare of Gewurztraminer) and Eichberg (2.5 hectares of Riesling, Pinot Gris, Muscat and Gewürztraminer) as well as the Turckheim Brand (0.5 hectares planted with Riesling and a bit of Pinot Gris). This family domain has been bottling wines for 70 years, and today their vineyards are completely organically farmed. Harvest (in small plastic bins) is by hand, and the grapes are sorted twice—in the vineyard and in the winery. The Baurs aim for digestible and gastronomic wines where two glasses alone is not enough. This was the goal set by Armand's father, Charles Baur, stating that "three glasses at a minimum should be drunk." Armand took over the domaine from his father in 2009." (10/2018)

Additional Information:

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.
