This sparkling wine is a blend of 5 grape varieties, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Auxerrois, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Riesling. The grapes come exclusively from the hillsides around the town of Rouffach. Only the best grapes are chosen to make this wine. The vinification is partly in barrel, which gives the wine complexity and fatness. The other part of the wine is produced in wooden tuns of 50 hectoliters. The wine matures for 18 months with regular canings. The final blend is realised on the principle of solera: a blend of the previous vintages is added to the wine of the year. This reserve wine is stored on lees. This maturation brings the wine an exceptional depth and a fine complexity. A second fermentation and 18 months horizontal storage are important for the nobility of the wine. After that the bottles are disgorged and are stored a few months to restore the balance to the wine. The disgorging date, indicated on the label, will permit you to drink the crémant at the right time. One year after the disgorging the wine reveals its characteristic fruits aromas. Beyond this date depth and distinction are at their optimum.
