Winemaking: Sparkling wine made in the traditional (Champagne) method. An 'assemblage' of 2016 and 2017 vintages. Disgorged in April 2020. Sulphur on bottling.

This Wine: Crémant is a name given to a sparkling wine made in the same style as Champagne but from a different French region. This particular Alsatian wine outshines many from the more famous region. 

Notes on the Winemaker: Jean-Pierre Rietsch is a natural winemaker in the village of Mittelbergheim, Alsace. His estate has been in the family for seven generations but wasn't used for vine cultivation until the 1970s. All of Jean-Pierre's wines are in very high demand but we particularly love his skin-contact cuvees which is a winemaking method rarely seen in Alsace.
