Wine Region: Alsace - Bollenberg - France
Grape: Pinot Auxerrois, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay.
Tasting notes: " The NV Crémant d’Alsace Brut Zéro is entirely from the Clos Lobenberg and has been disgorged without the addition of sulfur. The wine is pure and intense and shows concentrated fruit with delicate brioche and some oxidative flor and iodine aromas. Full-bodied and rich on the palate, this is an elegant and complex, mouthfilling yet salty and refined Crémant with a long and structured finish. This is an impressive wine and reminds me somehow of the Jura and also Jacques Lassaigne in the southern Champagne region. Vinous and very, very long. 12.5% alcohol. Tasted in May 2020." Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate
Expert Rating: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 93/100.
About the winery: Marie Zusslin and her brother, Jean-Paul, began working alongside their father, Jean-Marie, and grandfather, Valentin, in 2000. For ten years the three generations worked together in the same house/winery established by their ancestors in 1671.
Today, Marie and Jean-Paul share the lead responsibilities in the cellar and the vineyard following the holistic approach established by their father, whom began practicing biodynamic farming in 1997.
The Zusslins farm a number of terroirs close to their home village of Orschwihr: Clos Liebenberg, Bollenberg, and Pfingstberg. Their concern for nature creates beautiful wines full of vitality.
