Question: Would you recommend a Cremant for me to try?
Answer: Cremant is very much in vogue as a sparkling wine using the Champagne secondary fermentation methods. Some well-made reasonably priced ones are currently on the market from some 8 regions of France (Alsace, Bordeaux, Burgundy, Die, Jura, Limoux, Loire, and Savoie). Cremant d’Alsace is the largest producer. Recommend trying several regions to check the styles but include the delicious Cremant d’Alsace Rose (always 100% pinot noir grapes) from the Paul Zinck winery in the lovely village of Eguisheim. They also produce a white cremant using chardonnay, pinot blanc, and pinot noir.
