A great sparkling wine, lively and fine, the Allimant-Laugner Cremant d'Alsace Rosé from the AOC Crémant d'Alsace is a cuvée made from 100% Pinot Noir, with a maceration of a few hours directly on the press to give it its beautiful salmon color and tones of fresh red fruit. The Allimant-Laugner Cremant d'Alsace Rosé then ages for 12-18 months to best show the grape's characteristic fruit. During disgorging, the sugar dosage is limited to 4g/l in order to offer a wine that is as natural as possible.

Without a doubt one of the best Cremants available and the popularity can certainly be explained because this wine is also made according to the Method Traditionelle, so like a good Champagne, Cava or Spumante with a 2nd fermentation in the bottle. The price of this Cremant de Alsace is incomparable to that of a good Champagne and is of excellent quality. The fact that we are not alone in this is also evidence that this Cremant Rosé from Allimant-Laugner is in the top 3 of "Best Sparkling Wines" on Vivino and has the highest scrore according to that consumer platform for a sparkling-non-champagne

In France they love Crémant d'Alsace. There it is, after Champagne, the most drunk sparkling wine. For home consumption, this bubble is even number 1 among the French. Crémant d'Alsace is ideal as a festive aperitif, possibly with a light amuse-bouche, but also delicious with a fish dish.

ABOUT DOMAINE ALLIMANT-LAUGNER

The origins of Domaine Allimant-Laugner begin with 2 families who have cultivated the vineyards since the 17th century, the Laugners in the village of Dieffenthal and the Allimants in Saint-Hippolyte. In 1816 and after participating in all of Napoleon's campaigns, Captain François-Antoine Allimant buys more vines on the hills of Haut-Koenigsbourg and a beautiful 1664 farmhouse in the village of Orschwiller, the current property of the domain. Like most families, the Allimants still lived off multi-crop cultivation but chose to focus more on wine with Charles Allimant, who started bottling his wine in 1949 and developed their distribution with his daughter Mariette and her husband René Laugner . Their eldest son Hubert took over in 1984, gave the domain real fame together with his wife Françoise, and since 2013 with their son Nicolas. The family manages Domaine Allimant-Laugner as a beautiful heritage for more than 10 generations.

The privilege of having a product of this unique authentic terroir also gives a responsibility and so Domaine Allimant-Laugner works naturally with the utmost respect for the environment. All tasks are (pruning, plucking, maintenance) and also because the close contact with the vines makes it easier to understand what the needs are. In order to properly control the strength of the vines and to preserve the ecosystem, we mainly work with alternating plowed and grassy rows. Also in the cellar, modernity and tradition must be well balanced to produce precise and fine wines, but with a minimal human and environmental imprint. They work with a brand new pneumatic press and stainless steel tanks with temperature control and fermentation takes place only with natural yeasts. The basis is laid in the unique vineyards that have been managed by the family for 10 generations. Domaine Allimant-Laugner makes great wines with respect and modernity.

Vineyard for Domaine Allimant-Laugner Cremant d'Alsace Rose

The origins of Domaine Allimant-Laugner begin with 2 families who have cultivated the vineyards since the 17th century, the Laugners in the village of Dieffenthal and the Allimants in Saint-Hippolyte. In 1816 and after participating in all of Napoleon's campaigns, Captain François-Antoine Allimant buys more vines on the Haut-Koenigsbourg hills and a beautiful 1664 farm in the village of Orschwiller, the current property of the domain.

Like most families, the Allimants still subsisted on growing more crops but chose to focus more on wine with Charles Allimant, who began bottling his wine in 1949 and developed their distribution with his daughter Mariette and her husband René Laugner. . Their eldest son Hubert took over in 1984, gave the domain real fame together with his wife Françoise, and since 2013 with their son Nicolas. The family manages Domaine Allimant-Laugner as a beautiful heritage of more than 10 generations.

The 7 varieties from Alsace (Alsace) are grown on a total of 12 hectares of vines, representing 40 separate plots of different orientations, ages and terroirs. This division of parcels is essential for the varieties to be properly expressed on the right grounds. South of the village, between Orschwiller and Saint-Hippolyte, the heavy clay and limestone soils are particularly suitable for the Pinots. North of the village as far as Châtenois there are granitic soils which allow the production of more aromatic Riesling and Gewurztraminer. Above Orschwiller, the granite and schist hills of the Praelatenberg have been turned into vines since the 9th century. This terroir allows the production of precise and very typical wines, naturally classified as Grand Cru d'Alsace. The plots have a density of more than 5500 vines per hectare, which promotes competition and deeper rooting, for better typicity. The more competition the harder a grape has to work and the deeper it has to root. Bad for high volumes but perfect for quality and that is what this house stands for.

The demand for sparkling wine is also growing in the region and the Crémants Blanc and Rosé, produced by the traditional method with our local varieties, represent half of the production of Domaine Allimant-Laugner and have certainly given the house much more international fame. after each and every one of the wines has received very high ratings from the international wine press.

The privilege of a product of this unique authentic terroir also entails a responsibility and so Domaine Allimant-Laugner works naturally with the greatest respect for the environment. All tasks (plant pruning, picking, maintenance) are done naturally, also because the close contact with the vines gives a better understanding of the needs. In order to properly control the vigor of the vines and preserve the ecosystem, work is mainly done with alternating plowed and grassy rows. Also in the cellar, modernity and tradition must be well balanced to produce accurate and refined wines, but with a minimal human and ecological imprint. They work with a brand new pneumatic press and stainless steel tanks with temperature control and fermentation takes place only with natural yeasts. The foundation is laid in the unique vineyards which have been managed by the family for 10 generations. With respect and modernity, Domaine Allimant-Laugner makes great wines.
