Winemaker Notes

This Pinot Blanc gives slightly riper notes of peaches and pears along with bright lemon. Very dry and easy-drinking, perfect for sipping on a hot day.

Wine Enthusiast
Soft notes of Golden Delicious on the nose really unfold on the palate. The body is slender but the fruit notes have a honeyed quality, as befits a vintage Crémant. Its biscuity shortcrust flavours are accentuated by soft mousse and are a great counterpoint to the very refreshing, pleasantly light-weight body. The finish is creamy and full of yeasty roundness, yet beautifully dry.

Vignoble des 2 Lunes, France
Image of winery
Vignobles des 2 Lunes is 35 acres Demeter-certified estate in the heart of the Alsatian wine country. Owned and operated by the Buecher family for seven generations, sisters Amelie and Cecile Buecher have brought their own unique vision to the domaine; walking a fine line between a drive for modernization and respect for antiquity.

Amelie and Cecile have worked to protect the environment of their vines. In 1997, they stopped spraying with pesticides and achieved biodynamic certification in 2007. All vineyard work is done by hand and grapes are brought to the winery in small 1/4 ton bins where they undergo a gentle overnight pressing, feed by gravity directly into concrete fermentation tanks below the crush pad.

In cellar, the vision of the domaine is to preserve the work that has been done in the vineyard; native yeasts for all fermentations with no additions or manipulations of any kind, only a small amount of sulfur is added at bottling. Some whites, namely Pinot Blanc and Riesling, as well as the majority of the reds, are aged in large 1,000 liter foudre for nine to ten months before bottling in accordance with the lunar calendar.

In addition to these classic Alsatian wines, Amelie and Cecile have added a unique emphasis to the domaine, a sparkling wine! Looking towards the model of small growers in Champagne, the cremants of 2 Lunes are light and ethereal, characterized by freshness, strong mineral tension and finishing in a very dry style. All the sparkling wines made at the domaine are vintage dated and very low in dosage. In order to guarantee cremants of only the highest quality, all riddling and racking is done in house.

Alsace

With its fairytale aesthetic, Germanic influence and strong emphasis on white wines, Alsace is one of France’s most unique viticultural regions. This hotly contested stretch of land running north to south on France’s northeastern border has spent much of its existence as German territory. Nestled in the rain shadow of the Vosges mountains, it is one of the driest regions of France but enjoys a long and cool growing season. Autumn humidity facilitates the development of “noble rot” for the production of late-picked sweet wines, Vendange Tardive and Sélection de Grains Nobles.

The best wines of Alsace can be described as aromatic and honeyed, even when completely dry. The region’s “noble” varieties, the only ones permitted within Alsace’s 51 Grands Crus vineyards, are Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Muscat, and Pinot Gris.

Riesling is Alsace’s main specialty. In its youth, Alsatian Riesling is dry, fresh and floral, but develops complex mineral and flint character with age. Gewurztraminer is known for its signature spice and lychee aromatics, and is often utilized for late harvest wines. Pinot Gris is prized for its combination of crisp acidity and savory spice as well as ripe stone fruit flavors. Muscat, vinified dry, tastes of ripe green grapes and fresh rose petal.

Other varieties grown here include Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois, Chasselas, Sylvaner and Pinot Noir—the only red grape permitted in Alsace and mainly used for sparkling rosé known as Crémant d’Alsace. Most Alsatian wines are single-varietal bottlings and unlike other French regions, are also labeled with the variety name.

Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
