The Cattin family has been making wine in the same village in France since 1720. To this day, the winery is family-owned and operated, with over 170 acres of organic, dry-farmed vineyard. Jacques and his son, Jacques Jr. are 11th and 12th generation winemakers, respectively!
The soil in AOC Crémant d’Alsace – a winemaking sub-region in Alsace, France - is rich in clay and limestone. The clay helps the soil to stay cool and retain water. Since irrigation is prohibited in winemaking in this region, the water-retaining clay soil is essential to grape growing. In addition, limestone contains important nutrients that help the grapes grow better and sweeter, naturally.
For this wine, grapes were hand-picked from 15-year-old vines, then placed in a pneumatic press. The juice fermented on native yeast for almost 2 months in a temperature-controlled, stainless steel tank. Then it aged on the lees for nearly 2 months, prior to bottling for secondary fermentation. This sparkling wine is made using the traditional method – it spends nine months in the bottle during the secondary fermentation process!
Did You Know? “Crémant” is a French term for sparkling wines made using the traditional method. In this process, yeast is added to the bottle after the initial fermentation for a secondary fermentation to take place. This process is what creates the bubbles in the wine!
