BackgroundAckerman was established in 1811 in the small town of Saumur in the heart of Frances Loire Valley by Jean-Baptiste Ackerman. A visionary and entrepreneur, Ackerman was drawn to Saumur for its mineral-rich tufa soil, which produces wines with effervescence and naturally high acidity. Pioneering the production of high quality, méthode traditionnelle sparkling wines in the region, Maison Ackerman remains a benchmark of quality, producing wines of exceptional elegance and remarkable value. The grapes for the Crémants are carefully selected and hand-harvested and then aged to perfection within a network of chalk caves found high on the banks of the Loire River. Ackerman today has a fully-fledged sustainable development approach based on maintaining the right balance between the social, economic and environmental aspects of wine production. This means respecting terroirs, holding onto their personal values and pursuing a viable economic approach.
VinificationThe grapes are carefully handpicked. The Pinot Noir is harvested first, from a vineyard on a slope, overlooking the Loire. It provides the blend with rich and vinous features. It is followed by the Grolleau, offering fruity notes and finesse and then the Cabernet bringing about structure. Made according to the Méthode Traditionnelle, which is characterized by a second fermentation in bottle, Cuvée 1811 rosé is aged for a period of 12 months at a cool and constant temperature.
