Charles Baur Cremant d'Alsace Brut Rosé
Review Date: 12-4-2014
How can you go wrong with a rosé sparkler — especially under $20? Made from 100% Pinot Noir, this is jam-packed with crunchy red fruits and spicy strawberry sweetness. Delightful on its own, as an aperitif, with a first course salad, or with a plate of cheese and a hearty loaf of fresh-baked bread. The label should say "A Happy Rosé"
2011 Jean Max Roger "Cuveé C.M." Sancerre
Review Date: 5-29-2014
While the Jean-Max Roger wines are just gaining notoriety here in the U.S., over in France they have somewhat more of a cult following. The Roger family comes from a long lineage of winemakers dating back into the early 17th century. The estate is now run by Jean-Max and two of his three sons. The wines they craft are all together different and very much the same as the big names you may be familiar with. They have all of the wonderful expressions of terroir and verve that you would expect but, without being flashy, in your face or, over the top. I love the fact that these wines are chalk full of complexity and drive all the while being understated and classy.
