ABOUT THE PRODUCER
About Domaine Ansen Cremant d’Alsace Struch Brut
In the northernmost hills of the Alsace AOC of eastern France, Domaine Ansen has been a family of grape growers, fruit orchard farmers, cattle raisers, and all things in between for over 400 years. In the mid-nineties, Daniel Ansen set out to learn the trade of winemaking, spending time not only in Alsace, but also in Australia, the United States, and Bordeaux, where he went to enology school.
In 2010 he moved back into the old family house with his wife Karine and took over the fields from his father, looking forward to converting everything to organic viticulture, and starting to make wine from their grapes that had always gone to a local cooperative. Slowly expanding in Alsace’s diverse land, Daniel farms 8.5 hectares, in 40 plots (some are as small as 2 rows of vines), to 8 grape varieties, on 3 different soil types (black clay, limestone, and sandstone). Careful hand harvesting, the use of stainless steel for natural fermentation and aging, and very little (to zero) sulfite use in the finished wines, he lets each grape express its natural characteristics to the fullest, be it laser acidity, sweet ripe fruit, or a combination of both.
