Review: NV Gustave Lorentz Cremant d’Alsace Brut Rose
Cremant d’Alsace is a perennially underrated sparkling wine, and Gustave Lorentz’s rose bottling is a clear indicator of why you should be drinking more of it. Creamier than Prosecco and drier than Cava, it’s a very fruit-forward wine that’s almost overwhelming with notes of strawberry and raspberry. Some cinnamon-driven notes give it a certain spiciness, while the finish, lightly sweet with a lychee character on the very end. The fruit is fab, but it’s that creaminess that makes Cremant always more fun than perhaps it ought to be.
