PFISTER CREMANT D'ALSACE BRUT BLANC DE BLANCS

Established in 1780, Domaine Pfister is a small family operation with twenty-five acres of vines with an overall production of 5,000 cases of which this sparkler comprises just 850 cases. The Domaine is located due west of Strasbourg in the chilly northern reaches of the Bas Rhin. This cooler climate, along with the abundance of limestone and thinner, less sandy soils, fosters the production of particularly elegant, mineral base wines. Made entirely from the 2009 harvest this Champagne Method wine is a blend of three white grapes; 50% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Blanc, and 25% Auxerrois. Extended aging on the less (for approximately three years), which is rare with Alsatian sparklers, imparts pleasing autolytic notes of brioche and bread dough to the nose. The approachable yet lively plate delivers nuanced flavors of ripe pears, honey, and apple compote that gather notions of stones and citrus in the finish. This bubbly impresses by performing the difficult feat of combing value and flavor interest with crowd-pleasing drinkability.
