Leon Boesch Zero Cremant d'Alsace
A beautifully balanced sparkling wine from Alsace, made with a blend of mostly Pinot Blanc and Riesling grapes which are harvested by hand and carefully selected. The wine ages for 12 months on lees in large oak foudres to give it a rich, creamy texture and complex biscuity aromas. It was bottled in September 2020 and spends a minimum of 2 years 'sur lattes' to further develop the flavours. No sugar is added during this process, and the wine is fermented completely dry, hence the 'Zero' in the name. The nose is bright and expressive, with notes of buckwheat pancakes, pear compôte and raspberry. On the palate it is tense and linear, with a bright acidity and notes of green apple, pear, and yellow grapefruit. Everything plays together perfectly, resulting in a finessed and elegant bottle of bubbles.
