Willm, Blanc de Blancs Brut, Alsace, France
Tasting Note: Look for this affordable sparkler from Alsace that your guests will love and that provides a price-to-value ratio that will make you not hesitate to open a second or third bottle over the course of an evening.
Lemon-yellow to light-golden in color this wine has a somewhat-floral nose of green apple blossom, pear and caramel-infused yeast.
On the palate this dry, medium-bodied sparkler echoes the aromas suggested on the nose along with lemon citrus and some steely notes and minerality.
The bubbles are tight, prickly and refreshing.
A go-to sparkler to keep in your frig for sparkler emergencies.
Bottle Note: Willm established in Barr since 1896 owns a Domaine which includes the Grand Cru Kirchberg de Barr and the famed Clos Gaenbroennel. Our wines reflect the high quality of the Alsace vineyards and the tradition of Willm.
