N.V Allimant-Laugner Brut Rose, Cremant d'Alsace, France (750ml)
This delicious Cremant d'Alsace from Allimant-Laugner is by far our top selling bubbly in the history of this company. And for good reason. You simply cannot beat the quality for value in the world of sparkling wine. 100% Pinot Noir with all its wonderful aromas and flavors of bright cherry and juicy strawberry with excellent balancing acidity.
This family winery has been supplying us with delicious Crémant via their Oakland importer, also a family firm, for more than a decade. They have grown substantially compared to how they started out, and many Bay Area restaurants now list this wine as well. In the larger scheme of things Allimant-Laugner is still a small family winery, and we like it that way ;>).
