Pierre Sparr is one of the great family estates of Alsace, dating back to 1680 and spanning nine generations. Today Maison Pierre Sparr owns 37 acres of vineyards in the Haut-Rhin, the finest viticultural region of Alsace; they also source fruit from another 370 acres of vineyards owned by growers who share their philosophy and with whom they have long-term contracts. For generations, Pierre Sparr has been wholeheartedly committed to two key principles: excellence without compromise and maintaining the pure expression of Alsace terroir in their winemaking.
Today, the cellarmaster/winemaker for Pierre Sparr is the talented Alexandra Boudrot. In crafting the Cremant d'Alsace Brut Rosé, her commitment to the property's core principles is clearly evident. Alexandra utilizes whole-cluster pressing; the first fermentation occurs in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel vats, transforming the must into still wine. Six months later, wines from hillsides and valley floor are blended to achieve the distinctive flavor profile of the rosé. The blended wine is then bottled with a specific yeast added to relaunch the second fermentation in the bottle. The wine rests on lees a minimum of 18 months prior to disgorgement. Finally, the dosage is added to provide the particular brut style of this sparkling wine.
90 points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
“Yeasty mellowness is all that the shy nose gives away. The dark-pink hue of this wine promises body and fruit, which duly appear on the creamy palate. Mellow strawberry and apple pair with gentle freshness. A chalky texture supports the frothy foam while freshness highlights the dry roundness of the finish.” (11/1/20 edition)
