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.
