Wine Review: Although the Lucien Albrecht Cremant d'Alsace Brut NV showed spectacularly, there is something about the Rose that tingles the senses. A nice sun kissed pink color, this Rose opens with pink guava, watermelon, fresh raspberry, and hints of mint. The palate is fresh and vibrant, displaying notes of eucalyptus, hints of cinnamon, Asian apples, and washed strawberries. The finish is medium in length, but very clean. - Nicolay
Winemaker Notes: The flavors display nice strawberry and wild cherry fruit, with a touch of richness on the mid palate. It is balanced with dry, crisp acidity and complimented with a creamy texture and long finish.
