Pierre Sparr’s Crémant d’Alsace Brut Rosé is a pretty in pink sparkling wine made in the traditional method from 100% Pinot Noir. Having tasted several Pinots from Alsace, I think that bubbly may be this grape variety’s highest and best use in the region. While the lovely shell pink hue is indeed pretty to look at, this wine’s restraint and elegant balance will appeal to the more serious wine drinker as well. Soft and creamy mousse cloaks the crisp acidity and washes the strawberry fruit through to a clean, refreshing finish. I found it just a tad sweet for brut, making the red berry fruit more prominent, yet happily consumed two glasses over lunch.
This one’s a good value at the suggested price of $19. At ClubBev’s $12.99 promotion, it’s a total steal.
