'Fleche Saignante' Brut Nature AOC Cremant d'Alsace
Producer: Philippe Brand
2015 Alsace, France
🍇40% Pinot Blanc, 30% Pinot Gris, 30% Pinot Noir
Fresh and floral nose, elegant and fine bubbles. Brut and natural, it expresses all the flavours and freshness of a great wine on the palate with no residual sugar. The particularity of the Crémant Flèche Saignante is that the bottle (or secondary) fermentation uses the following year's grape must, which is all fermented using yeasts from our terroir. Organic grapes with no added dosage or sulphites or fining.
'We see the soil in which our vines grow as a living organism.
Our role is to maintain the balance of microorganisms, roots and animals within our soils and vivify our wines biodynamically, using natural products and medicinal plants.
For us, it is a philosophical choice aiming to return to natural expression of the terroir.
During the vinification, we strive to retain the life within the wine by maintaining the natural grape yeasts (microorganisms essential for fermentation). Technical processes such as filtering or adding chemicals are banned.
The idea is to capture all the life that gives us beautiful grapes, retain that life during the vinification and bring it to you in the bottle.
Our wines meet France’s Vin Naturel (AVN) and S.A.I.N.S. (no added chemicals or sulphites) standards.' - Domaine Brand & Fils
