Wine of the Week – Lucien Albrecht Brut Rosé

For many centuries, Lucien Albrecht has  been a leader, indeed, a “founding father,” of Crémant D’Alsace in Alsace where Romanus Albrecht began making wine in 1425.

Today, the winery is overseen by a leading produce, Wolfberger, an  overseer of 450 wine estates. Like Albrecht, they have deep respect for the grapes, declaring: “Respectful of the Past and Ambitious for the Future.”

This sparkling Brut Rosé is made from 100% Pinot Noir in the “methode traditionalle.” Considered a great specialty of the house, it exudes notes of strawberry and wild cherry and is a rich aperitif with dry acidity, and is well suited to accompany fruit-based desserts.

The wine is 12% ABV and in 2004, the winery won four separate gold medals in the 14th Concours National  Crémant de France competition.

A delightful addition to celebrations, it is also a beautiful example of its unique terroir, exemplifying the winery’s style in this versatile region. It’s available through Pasternak Wine Imports.
