Lucien Albrecht Cremant d'Alsace Brut Rose NV

     Lucien Albrecht Cremant d'Alsace Brut Rose NV is a 100% Pinot Noir sparkling wine made in the traditional method. In the glass, it is a pale salmon color with medium intense aromas of ripe strawberries with some floral notes. It is dry with a light body, medium+ acidity and medium alcohol (12% abv). On the palate, minerality prevails with a short, slightly tart finish.
     A good sparkling wine at $23 a bottle.
