Cattin Sauvage Crémant d'Alsace Brut NV

Alsace, FranceThe Cattin family has been making wine in the same village in France since 1720, and the winery and its 170+ acres of organic, dry-farmed vineyards are today in the hands of 11th and 12th generation Jacques and Jacques Jr. This 80/20 Pinot Blanc / Chardonnay was native fermented in steel, before 9 months on lees during secondary ferment. It was disgorged with 8 g/L RS. Perfumed white blossoms, pear, red apples flood the bright palate, held taut by crunchy acidity, but easily balanced by the RS. This is a lively, pure, food-focused crémant primed for enjoying now.Tasted: 30 March 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 26.99 BCLS Producer: Joseph CattinBlend: Pinot Blanc - ChardonnayUPC: 3488330007017
