"Based on Pinot Noir the NV Crémant d'Alsace Rosé Brut has a very pale color with just a hint of rosé. Very delicate fruit aroma with hints of red berries and flowers on the very subtle, fresh and elegant nose lead to a full-flavored and quite expressive palate. The wine is quite powerful and fruit intense but in a discreet and elegant way. Firmly structured but provided with fine bubbles and an aromatic aftertaste there is really finesse in this very well-made and distinctive sparkling wine. Still very young though." (WA)

"Tart strawberry and fizzing, lemony brightness give verve and a real refreshment factor to this light-bodied, frothy little rosé. There is welcome dryness to the clean, taut flavors. Overall this is light-hearted, easy-drinking fun." (WE)
