This sparkling wine from Alsace was chosen to accompany the first appetizer for a Tasters' Guild wine dinner at Epic Bistro in Kalamazoo. The appetizer was chive and onion Cotswold cheese with Finocchiona salami and Spanish olives. In addition to being a refreshing way to start a meal, sparkling wine tends to go well with salty items like olives, salami and cheese.
I enjoyed this Cremant d'Alsace a lot. Good bubbles. Flowers and fruit on the nose but also a sweet biscuity smell similar to that of a Champagne. Ample zest on the palate but also a creamy mouth feel.
