Valentin Zusslin - Cremant Brut Zero - 750 ml
WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“Based on Auxerroirs, Chardonnay and Riesling from the the unsulfured 2012 Crémant d’Alsace Brut Zéro sans soufré opens with a lovely clear, elegant and pure on the nose displaying aromas of ripe pears at this early stage. Extremely delicate on the lean and linear palate this non-dosed sparkling wine is fruit intense and shows a remarkable elegance and finesse. The grapes were picked with only 50 hectoliters per hectares in 40/45 hectoliter barrels, bottled in March 2013 and disgorged after 20+ months.” Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate
Established in 1691 by M. Jodocus Cisle (former name of Zusslin), Domaine Valentin Zusslin is now run by two generations of the Zusslin family who are following in the footsteps of their forbears. The winery is based in Orschwihr, south of Colmar, and the vines are planted on the slopes of the Bollenberg, Clos Liebenberg and Grand Cru Pfingstberg. In 1997 the domaine converted to biodynamic viticulture. Much of the work in the vineyard and in the cellar is done by hand, in order that the grapes can express the full potential of the unique terroirs of the Domaine.
