Camille Braun Cremant d'Alsace Brut Rose
The Braun Family can trace their roots in Alsace back to 1523, and have been making wine in the village of Orschwihr since 1902. Today the Domaine Camille Braun consists of 13 hectares of vines in or around Orschwihr, including the Grand Cru site “Pfingstberg,” documented since 1299, and single sites Bollenberg, Lippelsberg, Effenberg and Meissenberg. Under the watchful care of Christophe and Chantal Braun, the farming has been organic for the past 15 years and has been biodynamic since 2005. Production is just over 8,000 cases. The result of this labor has been numerous awards, including the Prize for Excellence at the Concours National in 2000, awarded for the consistent quality of all their wines, and in 2006 the Gold Medal at the Concours National des Crémants for their Crémant d’Alsace Brut.
This beautiful Crémant d'Alsace Rosé Brut is made from 100% Pinot Noir planted in clay and limestone soils, with vines averaging 30 years and the average annual production is a mere 10,000 bottles. Look for a beautiful pale pink hue, lively and persistent mousse and an expressive nose of cherries, strawberries and red fruits. The palate is dry, subtle and delicate with fine balance and a round, soft finish.
