The balance and freshness of Cremant d’Alsace come from the subtle match of the three grape varieties: Chardonnay for its vivacity & fruit, Pinot Blanc for its refined elegance and Pinot Noir for its persistence and subtle dark fruit. Clean and zesty,
there's a lemon rind quality to the nose along with whiffs of red fruit. The palate is refreshing, balanced and has a big personality.

Wine Enthusiast (93 Points):
“Coppery apple aromas lead into a creamy, tingly mousse. Granny Smith notes are complemented by anise, chervil and marjoram flavors for a sophisticated, herbaceous sip. The long finish is all tangy apple freshness. Pair this wine with roast chicken and let it help you out with the seasoning.”

The Tasting Panel (92 pts):
From 63% Pinot Blanc Auxerrois, 22% Chardonnay, 9% Pinot Noir and 6% Pinot Gris. Pale yellow color with notes of red currant, raspberry, cranberry, and kirsch. Hints of elderflower and flint, with a croissant finish. On the palate, green apple, gooseberry, and lemon zest complement the red fruit flavors, along with a touch of herbaceousness. Lively acidity.

“The essence of our wines stems from the close relationship between grape variety, terroir and climate.” Those immortal words from Gustave Lorentz, the founder of this famed Alsatian estate, pervade every aspect of the winemaking and winegrowing process, and it has since its founding in 1836.

There have been seven generations of family tradition here, currently helmed by sixth generation Georges Lorentz, and with that kind of legacy comes innovation. Gustave Lorentz was among the first producers in Alsace to use stelvin closures and became certified organic by Ecocert in 2012.

Gustave Lorentz vineyards are nestled in the hills of Altenberg de Bergheim in the Vosges Mountains on 85 acres, with four being planted on the hills of Grand Cru Kanzlerberg and 30 in the Altenberg de Bergheim. Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Blanc varieties, all vinified separately, make up the majority of plantings of these exceptional vineyards, along with smatterings of other varieties.

The wines have been described as “gastronomic”, being a perfect partner to any kind of cuisine. One of the outstanding wines is the Crémant d’Alsace Brut Rosé, made of 100% Pinot Noir. Having been aged for nearly four years and made in the traditional method, its pleasing aroma and lively acidity demonstrate all that is great about Gustave Lorentz.
