The Alsace region of France produces incredible sparkling wine values. Crémant d’Alsace is made using the same method as Champagne but is generally under $25. Willm Crémant d’Alsace Blanc de Blancs is a great example of this style of sparkling wine. It is 100% Pinot Blanc and surprisingly multi-dimensional for the price.
Golden yellow in the glass, this sparkler has interesting aromas of caramel and citrus. The palate is filled with delicate bubbles and tastes of apple, pear and lemon. There is also a kiss of butterscotch that lingers in the finish. A great addition to your holiday lineup! ($13, 12% alcohol)
Food Pairing Suggestions – Sip as an aperitif or pair with seafood.
