This is a cheerful example of sparkling wine made outside of Champagne in a more eastern region bordering Switzerland and Germany. Enjoy its soft creamy mouthfeel, vibrant energy and richness like baked apple or roasted pear. A nice brioche toastiness makes this wine both friendly and a bit serious.
Anything fried (or deep fried) makes a nice flavor contrast to the acidity in the wine, and the bubbles cleanse the palate. Some of our favorite sparkling wine pairings include fried chicken, fried calamari, and potato chips. Creamy sauces and dips like aioli also play a nice contrasting element. Great with cured meats like Prosciutto and buttery starchy foods like mashed potatoes.
Though the domaine is generations old, Vincent Gross represents its latest generation and has brought the winery to the cutting edge of modern winemaking. He is a young, enthusiastic winemaker practicing biodynamic viticulture and producing truly exciting wines. Located in the heart of Alsace, only a few kilometers from Colmar, Domaine Gross is a family-owned estate dedicated to the biodynamic philosophy and traditions. They cultivate 10 hectares of vines and have become more devoted to minimal intervention techniques, including no added sulfur at bottling.
