This tiny domaine is the source of some of the finest, richest and most concentrated wines in Alsace.

 

Domaine Bruno Sorg was created in 1965 by Renée and Bruno Sorg in Ingersheim, the village where Renée was born. In 1972, they bought a house with outbuildings in Eguisheim, the village where Bruno was born, and where the business is located today.

 

In 2004 François, Bruno’s son, built a temperature controlled winery just outside the village. François says he now has time to think instead of climbing up and down ladders and stairs.

 

Their decision to follow the principles of sustainable farming for the vineyards enables the coexistence of natural, and sometimes rare, species of fauna and flora alongside the vines.

 

The crémant is made from 50% Pinot Blanc & Pinot Auxerrois, 10% Pinot Gris and 40% Chardonnay and spends three years “sur latte” (on its lees) before being riddled and disgorged.

 

The wine is pale in appearance with fine, tiny bubbles. The nose is complex, toasty with a hint of citrus and apples. The mousse is rich, with the palate fresh and fruity with a long, clean finish.
