About This Wine:
Alsace enjoys a truly exceptional setting for making wine. Protected by the Vosges Mountains, this picturesque region is blessed with enviable grape-growing conditions: ancient soils, noble varieties and an extraordinary climate — one of the driest in France.
Thirteen distinct terroirs make Alsace a mosaic unlike anywhere else. This contributes to the complexity of the wines, including the sparkling Cremants d’Alsace. While more than 90% of Alsace wines are made from white grape varieties, the Pierre Brecht Brut Rosé was crafted entirely from Pinot Noir, which accounts for its pink rose petal and salmon color.
This Cremant d’Alsace is a bubbly that complements all occasions and cuisines. Elegant and mineral-driven, it makes a tasty and refreshing companion to crab cakes, zucchini fritters with feta and dill, turkey sandwiches with cranberry-pepper jelly, baked Camembert with figs, and even strawberry shortcake.
