Technical InfoHubert Meyer - Crémant d’Alsace NV
The Meyer family has a tradition as vignerons in Blienschwiller that dates back to 1722. In 1976, Hubert Meyer succeed his father as the head of the domaine. His son, Pierre, returned from his studies of viticulture and oenology to take the torch and continue the tradition in 2009. The wines display finesse and elegance. Precision and balance provide the experience of a lifetime and express the tradition of the Meyer family as well as the historic Alsacian village of Blienschwiller.
This bright and fresh Cremant d'Alsace is composed of 100% Pinot Blanc, vinified in the Traditional Method with 18 months aging sur latte. Hubert Meyer harvests their Pinot Blanc fruit destined for Cremant early, to capture optimum acidity. It offers a delicate nose of pear and stone fruit, very pure and clean, with hints of honey and minerals. Harmoniously balanced, this is best when young and fresh but can be kept for a few years to allow for added richness to develop on the palate. This versatile sparkler is wonderful served chilled, with or without food!
The color is a gorgeous crystalline silver.
Ripe red apples, both baked and fresh, plays on the nose. The palate displays the same mellow richness, cut by brisk lemon freshness. The fizz is fine and enhances the delicacy of the sumptuous flavors on the palate that manages to be both rich and slender. The utterly dry finish is full of glorious baked-apple notes.
