This wine produces a fine head of mousse around the top of the glass, with persistent bubbles. Its nose is very open, fresh, elegant; very pronounced and vinous. On the palate the wine is lively, easy to drink and distinguishes itself by a remarkable finesse; fresh on the finish with long-lasting aromas and flavours. This Crémant is a good way to begin a dinner or celebrate a big event. Perfect with shellfish.

More information:

This sparkling wine is a blend of 5 grape varieties, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Auxerrois, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Riesling. The grapes come exclusively from the hillsides around the town of Rouffach. Only the best grapes are chosen to make this wine. The vinification is partly in barrel, which gives the wine complexity and fatness. The other part of the wine is produced in wooden tuns of 50 hectoliters. The wine matures for 18 months with regular canings. The final blend is realised on the principle of “solera”: a blend of the previous vintages is added to the wine of the year. This reserve wine is stored on lees. This maturation brings the wine an exceptional depth and a fine complexity. A second fermentation and 18 months horizontal storage are important for the nobility of the wine. After that the bottles are disgorged and are stored a few months to restore the balance to the wine. The disgorging date, indicated on the label, will permit you to drink the crémant at the right time. One year after the disgorging the wine reveals its characteristic fruits aromas. Beyond this date depth and distinction are at their optimum.

When Michel Muré settles in Rouffach and plants his vineyard in the 17th century, he surely has little conception of the beautiful adventure that he is setting in motion for his descendants…

In 1935, Alfred Muré extends the property with the addition of the 12-hectare (25-acre) wholly owned Clos St Landelin, foreseeing already its potential for exceptional quality. He replants the terraces, ideally situated with their sunny exposure and shelter from the rain.

Nowadays it is Alfred’s grandson René, together with his children Véronique and Thomas, the 11th and 12th generations of the family, who are responsible for running this exceptional, wholly-owned vineyard and its neighbouring terroirs, using biodynamic methods.

Estate is totaly cultivated in organic vinegrowing.
