A very neutral nose leads to an equally neutral palate. There is a hint of earthiness and just the merest edge of citric verve, with oatmeal flavors associated with autolysis. While there is balance and freshness, this is a very straight-laced crémant.
Reviews wines from Austria, Alsace and England
German-born but London-based, Anne Krebiehl MW is a freelance wine writer contributing to international wine publications. She also lectures, consults and translates and has helped to make wine in New Zealand, Germany and Italy. She adores acidity in wine and is thus perfectly suited to her Austria/Alsace/England beat. Her particular weaknesses are Pinot Noir, Riesling and traditional-method sparkling wines.
