NV Crémant d'Alsace
I'm trying to uphold the noble and very French tradition of enjoying bubbles, anytime, all the time. Don't see a lot of rosé Crémant, but this is from a recent release.
Light salmon pink colour, transparent at the rim. Lively, but scattered mousse. Ripe, bright red berries on the nose. A bit sweet on the palate, develops some weight. Slightly bitter finish. A very, very simple wine, but perfectly fine with our seafood. A wine that picked up our spirits, in on otherwise ordinary Friday evening.
