Klur Cremant D’Alsace NV

Winemaking: Malolactic fermetation in stainless steel tanks with wild yeasts followed by a secondary fermentation in bottle with selected organic yeasts. No sulphur is added during vinification or disgorgement, which is carried out after 16 month in bottle.
A traditional Crémant without the addition of Sulphur! An astonishingly fruity nose of apple with the hints of brioche, with green apple, citrus fruits on the palate to complement the fine bouquet and long dry and soft finish.
About the producer: Whilst Clement Klur is still very much involved at every stage from vine to bottle, he has now joined forces with his good neighbour, Leon Heitzmann, and their joint effort in the vineyards is reflected in the increasing quality of the wines. These vineyards are tranquil places, full of fruit trees dotted amongst the vines which attract and offer shelter to local wildlife. This symbiotic relationship helps maintain the health and balance of their land. The steep vineyards means the harvest is carried out by hand, allowing the pickers to be very selective and gentle in choosing the healthiest fruit to ensure that the resulting wine is always of the highest quality.
