Winemaker Notes

The grapes are hand picked. The whole cluster Pinot Noir grapes are directly pressed in a pneumatic press with a long and soft pressing, hence the coral/light pink salmon color. Cremant Rosé is made by the Champagne Methode. The second fermentation takes place in the bottle. Afterwards it stays on its lees for 9 months follow by the remuage and disgorging.

Critical Acclaim

WW 91
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com

Pink perfection, what does it mean? How many times have you an enophile looked at a rosé and wanted to like it? Enticed by the color of pink but not loving the way the wines sits on your palate of finishes with too much sugar. Well, this where we separate the pretenders from the true performers. The Lucien Albrecht Rosé Crémant d'Alsace is simply outstanding and will satisfy the most finicky of wine lovers and its beauty will enlist those new to the joys of wine. Pair with appetizers, especially sashimi. So, give this wine a try and discover how perfect pink can be! Light to medium salmon in color, delicate and refined mousse; perfumed aroma of delicate strawberries and flowers; medium bodied and light on its feet in the palate; dry, fine acidity, crisp palate; delicious and serious wild strawberry flavors, a whispering note of flowers; medium finish, perky, fresh aftertaste. (Tasted: April 11, 2016, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Spectator

Tart red currant, rhubarb and strawberry come together in a very refreshing, rounded and appetizing fashion. The frothy, foaming mousse is exuberant and highlights these strawberry shortcake flavors brilliantly, while a totally dry palate makes sure that this stays classy. This is very satisfying, fun and fruit-driven, with a serious core and a bright, lemony finish.

Lucien Albrecht
The history of the Albrecht family as winegrowers can be traced back to 1425 with Romanu Albrecht, who was established in the town of Thann.

The fifteenth century was golden era for the Alsace wines and it was during this period that the winegrowers guild of Alsace was founded. Each year, the most deserving vinegrower was elected by the guild of the winegrowers as Bangard, a highly respected positions. It was held by 8 generations of Albrecht's, between 1520 and 1698.

Domaine Albrecht experienced a major development under the guidance of Lucien Albrecht, the father of Jean, to become one of the most important in Alsace with holdings in 9 villages surounding Orschwihr. Lucien Albrecht, extended the winery with new cellars and expanded the sales of his wines in bottles. In 1972, Lucien Albrecht was also a pioneer of Cremand d'Alsace. Today the Cremant is one of their specialities and a major part of the business.

150 years were needed to make up the Domaine Albrecht located in the very best Alsace terroirs. Jean Albrecht is now the ninth generation settled in Orschwihr, leading the Domaine.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
