Tasting Notes: Ring in Bastille Day with Ruhlmann’s Crémant d’Alsace Brut. Now in its second generation of wine producers, the Ruhlmann-Schutz family makes a variety of wines from the vines grown on their estate in Alsace, France near the town of Dambach la Ville. Their Crémant d’Alsace Brut sparkling wine is a bottle made for celebrations. Utilizing the traditional method of vinification used by Champagne makers, this brut has a clear gold color and fine bubbles.  On the nose, there are subtle floral aromas with notes of fruit. The palate is elegant, characterized by a long-lasting sparkle that develops in the mouth a full roundness with flavors of peach and hazelnut. It’s the ideal sparkling wine to ring in Bastille Day with, and also a perfect complement to the ongoing Tour de France, which happens to pass near the vineyard this French National Day.

 

Food Pairings: Foie gras, seafood, chicken, dessert
