Wine & Spirits
Scents of violets and red apple skin perk up the freshness of this wine. It’s a touch candied in its fruit, while the lively minerality shows refinement.
This is a pale colored rosé that combines mature aromas and tangy red fruits. It's on the dry side, and crisp with just the right touch of acidity and brightness. With a touch of toast, it is ready to drink now.
This brassy pink Champagne is composed of 45% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 20% Meunier. The color comes from 7% red wine from old vines in the grand cru of Ay--one of the plots purchased from Krug in the 1980s. The Champagne has a very creamy nose and absolutely outstanding Ay black cherry fruit. This rosé is one of the best we have in the blended style with both clean, abundant fruit and chalky drive. If you love rosé, don't miss this one! (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)
