Reviews and Ratings

Mary rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

From the cool climate Alsace region of France, this wine is 100% Pinot Noir (one of the only red grapes that grow well in Alsace) made in the champagne method. Strawberry and citrus notes dominate the nose with a touch of sweet biscuit scents. Dry and delicate the palate continues with more strawberry, lemon, and orange peel. Crémants (sparkling wines made in France, but outside of the Champagne region that are made using the méthode champenoise) are incredible values and this is probably the best one I’ve had at this price. I found it on sale for around $11. If you can find it for under $12, get yourself a case (or more)! This wine will put a smile on your face no matter what kind of day you’ve had!
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

I love this wine. Great value, exceptional taste and an all around great choice. Dry, well balanced, integrated alcohol. Beautiful brilliant pale salmon pink. Medium finish with persistence of tart blood orange, orange blossom, lime zest and pomegranate aril. Made with the traditional method of the storied Champagne, this Cremant DAlsace Brut Rose is a fantastic experience in the mouth and on the senses. Buy by the case option for festive occasions or to have on hand throughout the year. Tasted January and re-tasted March 2017. Rated 91/100.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
