Crémant d'Alsace is a protected designation of origin for sparkling wines made in Alsace, France.

A big part of the wine production in Alsace is used to make Crémant d'Alsace. About 18% of the region's vineyards used for this purpose.[1] 223 942 hectoliter of Crémant d'Alsace, about 30 million bottles, were produced in 2006.[2]

Crémant d'Alsace has been produced in Alsace since about 1900. Julien Dopff successfully tried to make wines using the "champagne method" then.[3]
