Vinification: Whole-cluster pressing; first fermentation occurs in temperature controlled, stainless-steel vats, transforming the must into still wine. Six months later, wines from hillsides and valley floor are blended to achieve the distinctive flavor profile of the rosé. Blended wine is then bottled with a specific yeast added to relaunch the second fermentation in bottle. The wine rests on lees a minimum of 18 months prior to disgorgement. Finally, the dosage is added to provide the particular brut style of this sparkling wine.
Bottle Aging: 18 months aging on lees
Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Noir
The Alsace region of France is known throughout the world for its lovely, dry white wines. Vineyards were first planted in this narrow valley during the height of the Roman Empire. In the heart of Alsace’s finest district, the Haut-Rhin, Maison Pierre Sparr Successeurs follows a tradition of winemaking that began during the reign of King Louis XIV. Since the winery’s founding in 1680, the Sparr family passed along its passion for Alsatian vineyards and winemaking from one generation to the next. Today that drive for perfection continues in the winery’s attention to each vine-growing and winemaking detail, and its uncompromising quest for excellence in every bottle bearing the Pierre Sparr name.
