history
Faithful to family tradition since 1760, the Hugg family has spread its reputation for fine wines to the four corners of the earth. The family is proudly devoted to the art of producing fine wines and takes pleasure in passing on the fruits of their knowledge of Alsace wines to wine and food lovers around the world. This generation now includes Françoise, who has added her experiences living in Monterey, California and is married to an American. Based in Bergheim, Marcel Hugg’s vineyards cover more than 25 hectares of vines in a region especially favored by nature. This includes owning vines in one of the most renown Grand Crus of Alsace-the Grand Cru Altenberg de Bergheim. While traditional methods of winemaking have been rigorously maintained, the Hugg family also uses the most up-to-date equipment. This marriage of old and new enables the family to offer a prestigious marriage of fine wines among the best wines that the French government has distinguished with the Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée label.
Vineyard
Various hill-sides around the little village of Bergheim with a predominance of heavy soils compound by clay and limestone.
Winemaking
Making CREMANT D’ALSACE requires very strict conditions of production and continuous care. The grapes are picked healthy (without any trace of rot) carefully set down in the press in the respect of the rules identical to the “Méthode Champenoise”. After the traditional fermentation “Vin de Base” in tanks, it is in the bottle itself that the second fermentation “Prise de mousse” takes place in cool cellars. This natural phenomenon requires careful and patient attention to each bottle./nAfter the two years ageing period “Sur lattes” the bottles are rotated during 4 days, gradually from the horizontal to the vertical position, in order to the yeast deposit to accumulate in the neck of the bottle.
Tasting notes
This Crémant is made from the single grape Pinot Noir which is full of charm and elegance. On the nose, it is fresh and delicate, showing some discreet red berries aromas like currant or blackcurrant; with its balanced acidity, this lively sparkling has a refreshing yet smooth, clean and dry finish.
Food pairing
Therefore, the Crémant d’Alsace makes a perfect partner for most aperitifs and cocktails when served between 5 and 7°C. The Marcel Hugg Crémant d’Alsace Rosé makes a refined aperitif and an ideal cocktail or reception drink. Fresh and discreetly fruity, it inspires a host of gastronomic matches throughout a meal, from cold or warm starters, via seafood, white meats and game and finally, some desserts.
Aging potential
