About the wine

From Mittelbergheim, Alsace where Jean-Pierre Rietsch cultivates some of our favorites from what is undeniably one of our favorite regions to drink. This is a real gem of an Alsatian crémant - perfumed & fresh with understated complexity provided by an elegant bubble & deep minerality!

A blend of 18/19, the cépage overall is ~60% Auxerrois, 25% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Gris. Secondary fermentation is kickstarted with the juice of the 2020 vintage. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, minimal SO2 at bottling. 

The Producer: Domaine Rietsch

The Rietsch estate has been owned by the family for seven generations. Previously, the land was used for growing tobacco and crops. However, in the 1970s, Jean-Pierre's parents began cultivating vines and passed them on to JP in 1987. The domaine still maintains a strong family-led culture. The vines are grown naturally, with a focus on terroir and without the use of chemicals. Sulphur is only used in the cellar when absolutely necessary.

The wines are made using a low-pressure pneumatic press to ensure a gentle extraction. The fermentation process is slow and always uses indigenous yeasts. Jean-Pierre, tired of producing late-harvest, off-dry wines from his more aromatic grape varieties, was one of the first growers in Alsace to experiment with maceration.
