Top 10 Sparkling Wines 2013

Pierre Sparr Crémant d'Alsace Brut Rosé offers lively acidity with a round and fruity taste

Pierre Sparr Crémant d'Alsace Brut Rosé
Alsace, France

Winemaking has been a Sparr family tradition for over 300 years, with the original vineyards dating back to the reign of King Louis XIV. Produced in the esteemed Haut-Rhin district of Alsace, this 100-percent Pinot Noir Brut Rosé is a blend of grapes from the hillsides and valley floor that give it a distinct flavor profile with lively acidity and hints of peach. The wine's delicate bubbles and smooth, dry finish make it an ideal barbecue companion on warm summer evenings.

Rating: 13.5/20
