Our Easter Case includes 3 bottles of Cremant d’Alsace Rose plus 3 bottles of Cremant d’Alsace Brut for £64.30 (normal Price £77.94) plus £7.99 delivery.
Both of these superb sparkling wines in our Easter Fizz case are Cremants – often mistaken for Champagnes, they are made by the same methods. Cremant is the French word for “creaming” – this means that they are made with slightly more than half the pressure of Champagne. This doesn’t give them any less sparkle but makes a wine with a fizzy mousse of bubbles and a delicious refreshing tingle on the tongue.
The market leader in at-home sales of AOC sparkling wines in France is Crémant d’Alsace and the House of Jean Baptiste Adam is one of the best producers. Founded in 1614, the House has no less than 14 generations of winemakers behind it and today follows bio dynamic principles. This Crémant is made in the Alsace village of Ammerschwihr which lies in the Kaefferkopf Grand Cru vineyard.
Cremant d’Alsace Brut Rose, Jean Baptiste Adam is made from 100% Pinot Noir and is a pale salmon pink in colour with shades of rose. With a bouquet of red and black currants, cherry and quince this is a lovely wine. In the mouth it is expressive, well balanced and refreshing with a dense, very fine mousse lasting to the very last sip in the glass. It is a super aperitif but is also great with food – try it with salmon, sushi or raspberry and rhubarb tart!
Cremant Brut d’Alsace, Jean Baptiste Adam is a pale lemon colour with golden tints and has a dense very fine mousse. It is highly aromatic with expressive fruity notes of apricot and pear and has hints of lime blossom, spice and brioche. In the mouth it is well balanced, rounded and harmonious. Perfect with food (especially fish and seafood) as well as an aperitif!
