June 15, 2014 - Produced in a style similar to Champagne and made just around the corner in the Alsace region of France, Lucien Albrecht’s Cremant d’Alsace Brut Blanc de Blancs is a very lovely sparkling white wine that won’t break the bank. This brisk, lively sparkler is a great lower priced alternative to Champagne. Made from first-run Pinot Auxerrois and Pinot Blanc grown on clay-chalky soil, it features fresh notes of citrus and white flowers and a brisk, creamy aftertaste. Elegant and moderately to heavily fizzy, the nonvintage Brut has a very sharp apple nose to it. The body is dry and cleansing, a crisp sparkler that goes down very smoothly and with a short finish. The fruit lingers for a few seconds, then it’s gone, inviting you to take another sip. I like it best after it’s had a few minutes to decompress and let out a bit of its bubbles. Heretical, maybe, but try it in a Chardonnay glass and see what you think. Its balanced medium-body matches well with food, making it a prime choice for all holiday entertaining, either as an apéritif or to accompany entrées.

August 27, 2013 - Very good. Golden straw color with light bubbles that fade a bit. This lacks the striking acidity of many champagnes. Palate has expressions of toasted almond, rice wine, soy, and tempura. Very smooth and clean tasting, a great value.
