Beck-Hartweg Crémant d'Alsace Brut NV

Alsace, FranceBeck-Hartweg is one of the historic domaines of Alsace, tracing their lineage back to the early 16th century. They’re located in the medieval town of Dambach-la-Ville, built upon pink granite bedrock. Florian and Mathilde are the 16th generation at the domaine and despite their young age (early 30s) they've already gained a solid reputation as a skilled and progressive representative of natural Alsace. They are certified organic, and practicing biodynamic. This crémant is a blend of Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois, Riesling, with 36 months on lees. Crisp and driving, with apricot skin, green apple, lemon pith, licked with anise and atop a broken stone base. The auxerrois lends a pear blossom note, which helps offset the sharp stony acidity of the Riesling. A cleansing, brisk, savoury styled sparkler for enjoying now, with canapés and lighter fare.Tasted: 30 September 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 37.00 private wine shops Producer: Beck-HartwegDistributors: Minimalism Wines
