Wines from Alsace offer incredible value and finesse. Often overlooked are the sparkling wines from the region that borders Germany in France’s northeast quadrant.
The 2015 Barmes-Buecher Cremant d’Alsace Brut is pure joy any time of day or night. Serve it at brunch with gravlax or any smoked salmon or whitefish. Have it with a creamy French brie over lightly toasted bread or serve it with sushi or oysters, lobster, shrimp and mussels. Or better yet, just drink this zesty, light, toasty bubbly any time day or night.
A blend of Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Auxerrois, Riesling and Chardonnay, the light lime and lemon zest flavors are quickly backed up by green apples and a rich and creamy melon flavor, all with a hint of almond spice.
That’s why the 2015 Barmes-Buecher Cremant d’Alsace Brut is today’s WineSiders’ Wine of the Day!
