Domaine Pfister Cremant d'Alsace
This Cremant, created using the traditional method, consists of Chardonnay grapes (50%) from the Lehe terroir (clay and limestone, covered with loessal soil), and Pinot Blanc/Auxerrois (50%) from the Osthoffen slopes (deep marl). It is therefore a "Blanc de Blancs".
Stored horizontally "on laths" for at least 24 months prior to disgorgement, the wine acquires the typical brioche aromas of yeast autolysis, while remaining fruity, lively and well-structured. The delicate and long-lasting effervescence also bear witness to the slow second fermentation and ageing of the wines on lees.
This Cremant is ideal for celebrations; it also works well as an accompaniment to meals, from the aperitif through to dessert.
