Winery Notes:

Albrecht Cremant is made by the strictest “methode traditionelle” and we consider it one of the great specialties of our house. Albrecht Crémant Rosé made from 100% Pinot Noir, has a fresh palate with small red berry flavors. It is delicious on its own. Maison Lucien Albrecht was founded in 1425 in Alsace and settled in Orschwihr in 1698. Today, our winery remains family-owned and managed. Our estate includes some of the most prestigious Alsace terroirs in the Grand Cru Pfingstberg and several superb monopoles including the famous Clos de Récollets. In our vineyards we emphasize a harmony with nature and, in our cellars minimal intervention in order to produce, in each vintage, hand-crafted wines that represent our terroir and family heritage
