Barmes Buecher Cremant D' Alsace 2018
Domaine Barmès-Buecher began in 1985 when Geneviève Barmès (née Buecher) and her husband François Barmès combined the vineyards of their respective families which each had owned since the 17th century. Today their son Maxime runs the vineyard and vinification with the help of his mother and sister Sophie. The domaine has been certified biodynamic since the 2001 vintage and grows 8 varietals on 17 hectares of vineyards split over 7 different terroirs including 3 Grand Crus.
This Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay blend is a bright and medium bodied. A zero-dosage sparkling wine whose initial impression of lively petillance and keen, refreshing citrus slowly settles into a wine of gentle, charming textures, fringed with brioche, meringue, and jasmine-blossom tea.
