2014 Crémant d’Alsace Brut

Albert Boxler


Madison’s Pick On Christmas Day, my grammie always has the entire kitchen counter laden with her homemade dips, treats, and party trays. This festive, lush-yet-mineral sparkler is the perfect match for pre-feast snacking. It’s become an annual staple on the counter alongside my grammie’s cornucopia of familiar snacks.

Boxler’s Crémant is the perfect noble sparkler to quench your Champagne cravings at a fraction of the price. Made with characteristic Boxler rigor, it contains a quality of fruit that would not typically be used to make a mere Crémant. It is harvested ripe, allowing Boxler to add minimal (extra brut) dosage. The result is a creamy yet intensely mineral sparkler that can age like great Vouvray Pétillant. Made exclusively from the grapes of the Pinot family: Blanc, Auxerrois, and Noir.

About Alsace

Tragically, Alsace might be the most misunderstood wine region of France. In spite of its long history of viticulture and tremendous diversity of pedigreed terroirs, a past fraught with marketing mishaps has left consumers baffled as to what exactly to expect inside one of these mysterious tall, thin bottles.

The good news, on the other hand, is that a new wave of quality-oriented growers is working hard to put Alsace in its rightful place as one of the world’s most fascinating sources of fine white wine. By embracing tradition, respecting terroir, and making a concerted effort to better communicate the countless virtues their wines have to offer, they have succeeded in putting Alsace back on the map.

Crafted from a number of grape varieties and beautifully interpreting the region’s mosaic of soil types, our Alsace imports are by and large dry whites offering exceptional versatility at table. While each of these selections is ready to be uncorked tonight, the finest among them are also capable of maturing for many, many years in a cool cellar. Expect kaleidoscopic aromatics, lively acidities, and loads of terroir transparency in these skillfully crafted masterpieces. Enjoy a foray into the thrilling world of the world’s most underrated wine region, and certainly do not hesitate to contact our sales staff with any questions as you take off on this mouth-watering adventure.

Trust the great winemakers, trust the great vineyards. Your wine merchant might even be trustworthy. In the long run, that vintage strip may be the least important guide to quality on your bottle of wine.—Kermit Lynch
