Bright yellow. Aromas of honey and spices, with a minty edge. Rich and round but fresh, showing a delicate herbal touch to the ripe citrus and stone fruit flavors. This lovely wine, a blend of 50% Auxerrois and 50% Pinot Blanc, closes with a zingy, lemony touch. Though the estate does not currently label it with a vintage, Paul Rieflé told me he may start doing so soon; this bottling is actually from the 2013 vintage. This Crémant is very
popular in Alsace and I can see why. Besides making a Crémant Rosé, the estate will soon be releasing a new Crémant made from recently planted Chardonnay vines.
