    Pear, lemon fraiche, and crisp golden apple supported by notes of sourdough bready-ness, toast, and a faint hint of ginger. There is some controversy over exactly what the "Jean Albrecht" label represents. It is exclusive to the Total Wine retail chain and may be nothing more than an alternate title for the classic "Lucien Albrecht" wines. On the other hand, it may entail separate bottlings of different cuvees (presumably inferior ones to maximize profits). The latter possibility is rumored to have been admitted by a representative of the winery who recently visited Raleigh. Any difference in quality is particularly difficult to surmise from my having tasted the two white Cremants d'Alsace on many occasions. Stylistically, they have appeared to shift several times over the years, and since they're non-vintage, it is impossible to know whether any changes in character are due to inconsistencies in the wines themselves or are simply the result of varying degrees of maturity in various bottles. Whatever the case, this particular bottle of Jean Albrecht Cremant was delicious.
