There are lots of reasons to celebrate this time of year. Graduations, vacations, sunshine, beach days…the list goes on! I am always excited to find a great sparkling wine that is priced exceptionally well for summer celebrations. Albert Mann 2010 Cremant d’Alsace Brut definitely fits the bill!
This sparkler is a blend of Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Auxerrois grown in the Alsace region of France. Made in the traditional Champagne method, it has 12.5% alcohol and retails for around $22.
This pale, gold wine has aromas citrus and pear with hints of fresh-baked bread. On the palate, there are delicate bubbles surrounded with fresh tastes of citrus, green apples, spice, and yeast. Vibrant acidity and a lot of value for your dollar! Perfect for any summer celebration!
