Philippe Michel Cremant d'Alsace Brut NV
Pinot Noir, Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois
Ripe orchard fruit dominates the nose of this effervescent sparkler, with aromas of peach, nectarine, pear. There's hints of quince, green apple, and lemon peel as well, along with the toasty brioche character typical of traditional-method sparkling wines.
Fine mousse and refreshing acidity are the hallmarks of this Crémant, along with full, generous flavours of peach and nectarine. The long, dry, finish is accompanied by a lemony brightness and a hint of stoney minerality, leaving the palate refreshed and ready for another sip.
This is a perfect aperitif wine to begin a celebratory evening with, but it will pair well with anything from assorted cheeses to fresh shellfish - think oysters with a citrusy mignonette.
Aromas and Flavours
Fuzzy peach candies, or real-life fuzzy peaches fresh from a fresh B.C fruit stand.
From Granny Smith to Red Delicious, apple makes for a delightfully crisp aroma.
That yeasty, slightly sour aroma that embodies the promise of freshly baked bread.
Common in cool climate white wines, this aroma can range from fresh citrus to lemon zest.
Remember playing with pebbles as a child and giving them a lick out of curiosity?
Handling and Serving
2022 - 2023
If you're a fan of sparkling wine, you've likely come across the word "Crémant" on a bottle at some point. Since the used of the word Champagne is prohibited outside of that region, Crémant is used for sparkling wines that are made in the traditional method anywhere else in France. Crémants will also carry the name of their broader region, so for example you'll see Crémant de Loire or Crémant de Bourgogne. There's currently 8 approved regions that make Crémant, and in general, they make excellent alternatives to Champagne and often highlight their home region's distinctive grapes. The Philippe Michel cuvée is a Crémant d'Alsace from historic producer Arthur Metz. Ideally situated at the north end of Alsace's famed wine route, Maison Arthur Metz has been a leading producer of Crémant since their inception in 1904. This NV (non-vintage) Brut is a blend of Auxerrois, Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Pinot Blanc. It's dry, fruity and refreshing, and at a fraction of the cost of Champagne, it's perfect for year-round celebration. Enjoy at a well-chilled 6 C over the next few years.
