Wine of the Week: Domaine Burckel-Jung Crémant d’Alsace Rosé
March 20, 2017
Domaine Burckel-Jung began marketing their crémant in 1986, becoming one of the first of Alsace’s small wineries to produce its own crémant.
The family winery comprises of 32 acres in Gertwiller, a small wine village set at the foot of Mount St. Odile, one of the most famous peaks in the Vosges mountains, which is also the home of a 7th-century abbey of the same name.
So, with that historical backdrop, it’s no wonder this wine is somewhat heavenly: light pink with salmon hints, soft and creamy with fine bubbles supported by an acidic backbone and red fruits. Made of 100% Pinot Noir grapes (as all rosé crémant is in Alsace), this wine can age for up to three years. If you enjoy is now, pair with appetizers or red-fruit desserts.
