One of the fine Wines presented during TFWA Cannes 2022 was the „Helfrich Crémant d’Alsace“: The wine is made through traditional methods, beginning by manually harvesting the grapes. Before aging on fine lees for three months, the winemakers carry out an alcoholic fermentation under controlled temperatures.
The wine is then bottled for its second alcoholic fermentation, called “prise de mousse”. This process of aging on lees for 24 months gives the wine its effervescence.
