| ||Tasted by isaacjamesbaker on 6/19/2014 & rated 85 points: Nose of white and red flowers, watermelon and strawberries. Very fizzy on the palate, this is a fun wine, but it's neither deep nor complex. Tangy with flavors of watermelons, strawberries, lemons and some minerals. Seems like a crowd-pleasing pink bubbly. 100% Pinot Noir. (2305 views)|
| ||Tasted by pilot360 on 1/2/2014: Very attractive strawberry / cream floral , minerality notes on the nose. pure and has good depth. |
Palate is satisfying red cherries and strawberry.
Fine and vigorous bubbles. A little too effervescent initially, gets more mellow in about an hour of being open.
Would drink this all day long! (4610 views)

| ||Tasted by Benj on 12/7/2013 & rated 84 points: Champagne Tasting at Gordon's (Gordon's Fine Wine & Liquors): Nose is all strawberries especially candied strawberry. Mousse is moderately coarse. Has the sour-bitter-green vinous taste of unbalanced wine. Not bad but not great. $20 (3549 views)|

| ||Tasted by ericindc on 6/30/2013 & rated 84 points: Closed nose with some light red fruit. Taste has just a touch of mouse, light to medium bodied with some red fruit, rather astringent, some light watermelon, and a large amount of bitterness. Even at $20, not the best QPR. (3834 views)|

| ||Tasted by Matteo Girardi on 4/20/2013 & rated 86 points: WSET DIPLOMA TASTING NOTE|
Appereance: the wine is clear, it has pale intensity of light orange colour, with fine and small bubbles. The bubbles are persistent.
Nose: it is a clean wine, it has medium+ intensity of strawberry and raspeberry aromas. It has hints of bread. It is youthful.
Palate: It is a off-dry wine, with medium acidity , it has medium alcohol (12%) and it has medium- body. It has medium intensity of strawberry, raspberry aromas and a certain minerality on the palate. The lenght is medium
Assessment of quality: It is a good wine, because it has a good balance between sweetness, flavours, acidity and alcohol. It shows the characteristics of its grape variety (Pinot noir) , but it lacks of complexity on the nose and the lenght on the palate is not long
Readiness for drinking/potential for ageing: drink now, not intended for ageing
Approximate retail price:high priced

| ||Tasted by Rezy13 on 4/13/2013 & rated 88 points: Perfect Sunday brunch wine; light strawberry, and white wine fruit, not a ton of body but very quaffable, a bargain for the price and should be a crowd pleaser. (2636 views)|

| ||Tasted by esh44 on 2/9/2013 & rated 88 points: Refreshing and crisp -- nice salmon hue. Subtle strawberry on the nose with lots of chalk and white minerals. Dry-ish. Not the most complex sparkling but a good value to pop, pour and just enjoy with thinking too much about it. (2443 views)|
| ||Tasted by Mrbuzz on 1/1/2013 & rated 90 points: 100% Pinot Noir.....Fresh strawberry, raspberry fruit....good tingle of tiny bubbles, cherry froth, crisp minerals, nice dryness. Has some tasty fruit bowl sprinkled with fresh herbs to it...refreshing, not terrible complex, but refreshing and tasty. Kind of reminds me of a Provencal rose'...with bubbles! Nice sparkle for the money. (3316 views)|

Washington Wine Report (12/29/2011)
(NV Lucien Albrecht Brut Rose Cremant d’Alsace Alsace) An enjoyable, everyday sparkling wine that can frequently be found on sale in grocery stores, this wine brings sweet raspberries and strawberry aromas and flavors. The palate is dry, crisp, and light bodied. Note that I’m listing this wine as recommended as I always see it for a sub $20 price. At $23, I would pass. 100% Pinot Noir. 8,000 cases imported. Recommended *** points

Pinot Noir Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.
