Alcohol By Volume: 12.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Lucien Albrecht, Jean's father, pioneered Crémant production in 1971 and helped gain an Appellation Contrôlêe for the wine and for Alsace. The wines vinified by the classic Champagne Method from 100% free run juice, are the best sparkling wines in France outside of Champagne itself. Recently Maison Lucien Albrecht was awarded four gold medals at a comprehensive National I.N.A.O. tasting of all sparkling wines in France, giving the firm more gold medals than any other Crémant producer in France.

This Blanc de Blancs is made from 100% Pinot Blanc. The Blanc de Blancs is distinguished by a fine and elegant bead, a beautiful straw color; a light, delicate palate. It is delicious at any time of the day and with many foods.

Critical Acclaim

"Albrecht obviously has a skill in sparkling wines, because this, like its partner rose, is skillfully made, full of fruit and richness."

Crémant d’Alsace Brut Lucien Albrecht is made from 100 percent Pinot Blanc grapes grown in clay-chalky soil. It is made méthode Champenoise with malolactic fermentation. Here is what you can expect. Look: Northern sunlight on a December afternoon, pale yellow, bright and transparent. This one has slightly larger bubbles than the first streaming with mid frequency for a gentle mousse that disappeared quickly. Smell: A cold winter’s day with dusty, minerally limestone and faint honey suckle. Taste: A bite of fresh grape fruit and tapioca with a silky-smooth, balanced feel. The Lucien Albrecht has a mid-length, slightly bitter finish. Read my full review here: http://whatareyoudrinking.net/2010/12/budget-bubbles-select-a-delicious-sparkling-wine-for-your-holiday-party/

Very nice for the price. Mixed with OJ and it tasted great. Nice when not mixed either. Would definately buy again. Tasted just as good as champagnes that are much more expensive. Crispy and sweet. addendum...I just bought a few more bottles incase they run out...loved it even more the second time around....lovely. Will buy more again as gifts.

Very easy to drink. Pleasant. It was almost a crime to use this cremant for mimosas, but it has a lot of value.

...I taste affordable sparklers ($13-22-ish) and the Lucien Albrecht offerings come out on top every time. I serve this every New Year's Eve and it gets consistently good reviews. The rose (saignee method) is even better. My friends and I have gone through at least 12 cases of Lucien Albrecht cremant and it's supremely consistent in flavor.

Intense bubbles here-like a cheap champagne. Rather sharp in the mouth. Strongly prefer the Lucien Albrecht Rose over this one.
