Lucien Albrecht Blanc de Blancs, Brut
Lucien Albrecht has been making wine for over 40 years and helped gain an Appellation Contrôlêe for the wines of Cremant d' Alsace. This wine is vinified by the classic Champagne method. This is an elegant sparkling wine that is a great alternative to Champagnes costing twice the price. This wine is made from 100% Pinot Blanc. Having a lovely straw color and thousands of tiny bubbles, this Blanc de Blancs has delightful aroma of fresh picked apples. This sparkling wine is light and delicate on the palate and the apple aromas lead to the taste of fresh Macintosh apples, Kadota figs and creamy citrus fruit. Being light, fruity and dry, this type of wine is delicious at any time of the day and with many foods. Try it as an aperitif with a sharp New York Cheddar or as a companion to a spicy Thai dinner. We purchased this pleasing sparkler from Pete’s Wine Shop, in Bellevue, for about $16.
