Lucien Albrecht Crémant d'Alsace Brut Rosé

The non-vintage Lucien Albrecht Crémant d’Alsace Brut Rosé begins with a wonderful aroma of strawberries and cherry along with some light floral notes, cream and a hint of fresh baked bread.

The wine tastes full of rich, tart cherry, strawberry, cream, a little lemon and a dash of salt. Crisp, refreshing and with great balance and good acidity, it is absolutely a delight on the palate. It’s got just the perfect amount of sweetness as well.

On the crisp finish the strawberry and cream flavor continues plus some minerality comes through as well. This is delicious and just a pleasure to drink!
