Crémant D’Alsace Brut Martin Zahn from Cave de Ribeauvillé.
Grape Variety: Blend of 80 % Pinot Blanc and 20 % Auxerrois (dry).
Tasting Notes: A touch of stone fruit gives a richer fruitier edge to the apple notes on the nose. The palate is wonderfully fresh but majors on that fresh crisp apple aroma, helped along by lively citrus. The bubbles are fine and consistent on the refreshing, slender and almost creamy body — a wonderful aperitif style with a dry finish.
Food Pairing: Ideal for an aperitif or with dessert. Fresh, fine and bright, this Crémant will perfectly marry a celebration meal. Mix it with our Metté Liquors for a more fruity variation.
