Crémant d'Alsace brut
Produced in the same way as Champagne the
Crémant d'Alsace is a high quality sparkling wine.
Dry, but delicately fruity, it is the ideal aperitif
for all festive events and celebrations!
Also handy to save sanity and a useful
preventative measure from turning to
something harder like crack cocaine.
