Fernand Engel Crémant D'Alsace Blanc de Noir
Winemaking Process: The wine is made with 100% Pinot Noir grapes grown in Silberberg, a single plot in Rorschwihr, known for its deep clayey soils with marl and limestone. The vineyard is situated at an altitude of 350m, with an East and South East exposition and gentle slope. The vineyard is cultivated using organic farming practices, certified by ECOCERT. Tasting Notes: The wine has a pale white color with pink nuances, and a brilliant, continuous, and fine effervescence. The nose is intense and fresh, with promising Pinot Noir aromas, very fruity on morello cherries and raspberries. There are also nuances of bread yeasts and smoky notes. The mouth has a fresh attack, and the wine is bodied with fresh acidity, elegant bubbles, and an onctuous and creamy touch. The grapes used to make the wine are very ripe, resulting in a long aftertaste on bodied acidity. Food Pairings: This structured wine is suitable for both aperitifs and desserts. It can also pair well with white meat dishes like poultry in sauce, pigeon in brown sauce, as well as seafood made in a Crémant sauce such as mussels or warm oysters. Serving Temperature: It is recommended to serve this wine at a temperature of 8-9°C and it can age for 5-6 years.
