Prince Știrbey Sparkling Crâmpoșie – méthode traditionnelle

97,00 lei

Already in the early XIX century, experts from France and Germany discovered that Crâmpoșie was a suitable variety for producing sparkling wine. Ours is made only of Crâmpoșie grapes and is produced in the traditional “champenoise” way: the base wine´s first fermentation in tanks was followed by a secondary fermentation in the bottles, where the wine aged on yeast for two years. After the wine has aged properly, it was riddled by hand for two weeks and then disgorged. For the dosage we use only the same sparkling wine, without adding any sugar, resulting a true “brut nature”.

Thus, given the high acidity, combined with fine minerality and fresh and elegant fruitiness, a sparkling wine is obtained, which awakes all senses by its easy and seducing finesse , reflecting the spirit of the place where it was born in and about the genius of the people who created it.

The wine is shiny, pale yellow, with intense soft pearling. Elderflower, young wild flowers, ripe white plums and apples are the main notes completed by a rich mineral feeling.

The taste is round and complex and the finish is light, long and fresh.

For over 300 years the wines of Prince Știrbey family are grown according to a core of well-developed principles, preserved by each generation. Our wish is to respect them and pass them to the future generations, as well:

Discovery of traditional grape varieties

We are adepts of traditional grape varieties, evolved over the centuries and adapted to the pedoclimatic conditions of a wine region. Only there they can fully develop their personality. Vinifying them separately, we are only producing single grape wines, in order to reveal the individual character of each variety.

Discovery of Terroir

Soil, climate, flora and fauna, as well as customs of people working in our vineyards and in our winery, they all stongly influence the development of our grapes and wines – giving each single parcel a specific character – synthesized as Terroir or, in a profounder understanding, Genius Loci – the spirit of the place. Our aim is to convey this Genius Loci in all our wines.

Nature has priority

We are convinced that the forces of nature are able to give us much healthier and durable products than any human technical intervention could. We are nurturing the grapevines only by manual work and not mechanically, reducing chemical treatments down to a minimum. At vinification we respect the nature’s rythm in fermentation and aging, thus not forcing the process through technical interventions.
