2013 LUCIEN ALBRECHT 1698 BRUT (CHARDONNAY) CREMANT D’ALSACE
If you enjoy everything there is about Champagne other than the price tag, Alsatian Crémants should be on your radar… After all, they are high-quality sparkling wines from France that originate from areas outside of the Champagne region. And did you know that the Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée Crémant d’Alsace shares a similar climate and terroir to Champagne, and both regions hail from Northeastern France…
If that’s not enough to pique your interest, consider that this vintage Cremant was made with 100% Chardonnay grapes, and was crafted in the same traditional methods used in Champagne production, where the secondary fermentation occurs inside the bottle. In reality, finding a vintage Champagne of this quality, and in this affordable price range would be extremely difficult to say the least.

Wine Enthusiast Notes, “Ripe yellow apple and a vanilla dominate the nose. This richness continues on the palate, with its full flavor and gently fizzing bubbles. It’s a rich and rounded, yet dry and fresh wine. Consider this with food rather than as an aperitif. Lovely now, it is sure to evolve. Drink now-2025” WINE ENTHUSIAST 92 POINTS
Ed’s Notes, “Delicious and So Refreshing… I love sipping on this while cooking — as I prepare several different dishes, this helps cleanse my palate in between tastings. I enjoy Chardonnay with Halibut, Salmon, Lobster, and Crab Cakes… and the sparkling adds another level of fizz, buzz and excitement. I also really LOVE this wine with Popcorn, while watching Netflix with the kids and wife… that’s my ultimate pairing 🙂 We have about 10-cases In-Stock and ready to ship to you and yours. The kids love when I pop the Cork, and I invite you to Try it with a movie and popcorn, for a great night! ” Ed Stephanick 95 Points
