About Louis Maurer

This inspired and well-beloved vigneron is still In his early 20s farming his family’s land, under the tutelage of his grandfather. The vineyard is just 4 hectares and planted with Gewürztraminer, Pinot Noir, and Riesling from a superb terroir in Lerchenberg in Eichoffen, Alsace. Descended from a family of vignerons, Louis Maurer was inspired by the natural winemaking approach of Alsatian vintners Rietsch and Rieffel.

What is a Crémant?

At its core, Crémant is a category of French sparkling wines that are produced using the same traditional method as Champagne, yet from other regions, and often leaning on grapes other than the Big Three of the world’s most famous bubbly (Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier). The main ones you’re likely to see on the market are Crémant d’Alsace (often made from Pinot Blanc or Pinot Gris, and sometimes a grape called Auxerrois, in addition to Pinot Noir and Riesling); Crémant de Bourgogne (Pinot Noir, Gamay); Crémant de Loire (Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, and even, unexpectedly, Cabernet Franc); and Crémant de Limoux (Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, and a local variety called Mauzac). Crémants are also produced in Bordeaux, the Rhône Valley (called Crémant de Die), Jura, and Savoie. There are eight total AOCs in France for Crémant production.
