Crémant d’Alsace Blanc Brut is a sparkling white wine from the house François Lipp et Fils, located in Alsace in eastern France. It is a delicate pale hay coloured wine with a persistent mousse and many fine bubbles that give off fresh aromas of elderflower, white pear, breadcrumbs and biscuits. The mouth-watering palate is light, delightful and elegantly rich in flavours of lemon, honey melon, peach and pie crust, and a long and pleasant finish. The ripe fruity notes are balanced with a vivid acidity, making the wine easy to enjoy on all occasions. Serve it with fish, shellfish, sushi, tapas or simply as an aperitif.
The wine is made in much the same way as Champagne in what is known as the Traditional Method. This is where the with is fermented twice, with the second fermentation and maturation takes place in the bottle. This method creates a beautiful mousse and delicate aromas typically of bread, biscuits and nuts.
The Lipp Family has been making wine for generations since 1790 in the historic village Husseren-les-Chateaux in the southern Alsace region Haut-Rhin, surrounded by vineyards on the slopes of the Vosges Mountains. The Haut-Rhin region has for the longest time been associated with the best vineyards of Alsace. We have here vineyards located at the highest altitude in the whole Alsace region, as well as most of the prestigious Alsace Grand Cru vineyards. The Lipp family owns no less than three Grand Cru vineyards. It is essential for Jean-François Lipp, the wine maker and head of the house, to grow the vineyards organically not only with respect of nature and biodiversity, but also to create authentic wines that express this unique terroir. Jean-François takes care of every process in the vineyard as well as in the cellar. The elevation of the vineyards is in many ways an advantage, especially when cultivating organic grapes with no use of chemical products to protect the vines from diseases. While the moist climate in Alsace is a challenge for wine growers located in the lower areas, the intense sun exposure on the high slopy location quickly dries the morning mist, always keeping the grapes healthy and in perfect condition.
