Wine & Spirits rating: 90 points

Winemaker's Notes:

Pure pink color; fresh aromas of red berries, mostly strawberry and raspberry; nicely bodied with delicate bubbles, the flavors are intense on the palate with a lively acidity, framed in a well made structure; the finish is clean, dry and smooth: a delightful sparkling wine!

Perfect for cocktail parties, aperitif, but also excellent with seafood and shellfish dishes

About Pierre Sparr:

The Pierre Sparr estate was created by one of the oldest and most prestigious wine producing families in France's Alsace region, established since 1680. It produces an award-winning and diverse range of 32 different red, white, still, sparkling, dry and sweet wines and owns 80 acres of vineyards spread across five different Grand Crus – Brand, Mambourg, Schlossberg, Schoenenbourg and Sporen. Any additional grapes are purchased under strict quality control with other growers, for which Sparr pays a premium. In July 2007, passionate Alsatian winemaker Vincent Laillier was brought in to revolutionize winemaking at Sparr from vineyard practices through to bottling processes. Typical of the region, Sparr wines are rich in fruit and firmly structured. With a belief that mature wines are more exciting, the winery will regularly hold back top wines from the market until they are at their optimal drinking window.
