Domaine Frey-Sohler: Crémant d’Alsace “Emotion” Brut | Britt’s Wine of the Month

A really good sparkling wine with 48 months on the lees. So it is complex and full-bodied. The grapes are 75% Pinot blanc and the rest is Riesling giving floral and citrus aromas on the nose. The taste is quite dry. A sparkling wine to drink with food if you want but it can be enjoyed at all times.

“Emotion” is a brand new Crémant d’Alsace, which was launched by brothers Fabien and Nicolas Sohler at Domaine Frey-Sohler at Vinexpo, held recently in Bordeaux. It is very rare with such a long ageing on the lees for a crémant. Usually they only have the minimum of 12 months. Price at the domain is 15 euros.

A Crémant is a French sparkling wine made with the traditional method, ie a secondary fermentation in the bottle. Crémant is an appellation covering several regions in France. In addition to Alsace you can make crémant in the Loire Valley, Burgundy, Limoux and Bordeaux.

Alsace is a beautiful wine region with charming villages, unique gastronomy and outstanding wines. Come and experience Alsace wine and food on a wine tour with BKWine. Travel to the world’s wine regions with the wine experts.
