Crémant d’Alsace Brut Cattin

20140119-152915.jpgLCBO#: 281329
Price: $16.95
Made in: Alsace, France
By: Joseph Cattin

Nice classy label with a big white dot, written gold medal Paris 2012. In small writing, says something about the agricultural ministry, so has nothing to do with wines. Starts with aromas of yeast, sourness and grape sweetness. The sourness gets stronger with time, resulting in a vinegar note (apple-cider vinegar). The taste is quite mild. Eventually, hints of regular hand-picked apples come out, but the sourness is a little stronger over it. Does get a little better as it breathes, but a gold medal ? As a sparkling ?? I don’t think so.
