Domaine Geschickt Cremant d’Alsace Double Zero 2016

'A cremant sparkling wine which is called double zero because, as Aurelie Fayolle explained to us it has zero sulphites and zero added sugar (dosage). It is an “assemblage” of four grape varieties, namely Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Auxerrois and Riesling. The grapes were picked by hand then pressed slowly in a pneumatic press.

The first fermentation was entirely with natural yeasts. The wine was then bottled for the second fermentation (where some juice from 2017 was added to kick off the fermentation in the bottle) and the wine was matured “sur latte” to gain extra complexity. No sulphites or sugar have been added to this wine at any time.'
