Lucien Albrecht, Jean's father, pioneered Crémant production in 1971 and helped gain an Appellation Contrôlêe for the wine and for Alsace. The wines vinified by the classic Champagne Method from 100% free run juice, are the best sparkling wines in France outside of Champagne itself. Recently Maison Lucien Albrecht was awarded four gold medals at a comprehensive National I.N.A.O. tasting of all sparkling wines in France, giving the firm more gold medals than any other Crémant producer in France.

Wine SpectatorA hint of pencil shavings and citrus flavors mark this appealing crémant. Light- to medium-bodied, with good intensity and length. Drink now. 3,000 cases imported.

Wine EnthusiastToasty and yeasty on the nose, and with a pale color and fine bead, at first glance this looks very promising. And truth be told, it is pretty good, just not as good as we'd want it to be. the flavors are nice, offering more toasty elements and a bit of anise, but the mouthfeel is heavy and lacks balancing crispness.
