Crémant is any sparkling wine made in France using the same method as Champagne but not made in the Champagne region. The bottle will tell you what part of France the wine is from, as in "Crémant d'Alsace" (Crémant from the Alsace wine region). A particular standout is Lucien Albrecht's Crémant d'Alsace Brut Rosé, made from 100% Pinot Noir, for its surprisingly high-quality to price ratio (only $18).
