Truly one of the most delicious Cremant D’alsace I’ve ever tasted. Hugo is classified as a Cremant d'Alsace but besides it's classic method process and perlage as a result, it feels and tastes a lot like an Ancestral method wine. The wine itself is paradoxical, but is why we were so fascinated by it; It's refined but cloudy, looks like a pet-nat but drinks like a Cremant, candied fruits on the front but is a brut nature wine and quite dry, bready and yeasty aromatics,  ripe red fruits on the palate; it never quite made sense one way or another, but we always loved it. 

Pinot Noir from entirely Granite soils from their oldest Pinot Noir vines (50-60 yrs old). 

region: alsace, France

varietal: Pinot Noir

style: bubbles (Traditional method) Blanc de Noirs

farming/cellar: Demeter certified Biodynamic, hand picked, Direct but slow press (8 hours), Aged on its lees for an entire year in steel tanks. Fresh Pinot Noir must from the next vintage is added to restart fermentation and is then bottled with enough sugar to continue the secondary fermentation in the bottle to create a sparkling wine. After at least 24 months on the fines lees in bottle, it's disgorged with no dosage; the bottles are topped off with wine from other disgorged bottles of the same wine. This vintage in particular was aged 2.5 years before disgorgement. no so2
