Staff Pick Notes

Sometimes it feels like there's no end to my craving for bubbles, but I can't always indulge in Champagne. Thank god for Cremants. This beauty from the Loire is a blend of Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay grown on 88 acres in the heart of Coteaux du Layon. The Guégniard family has been making wine at Dom. Bergerie since the early 1960s. It's currently run by Yves Guégniard, his wife Marie-Annick, and their daughter Anne, who converted to organic farming. This is a fuller style of sparkling, dry, lush, easy-drinking, full of honied apples, citrus, and almonds. A perfect bottle to pop for brunch or a Tuesday night roast chicken.

Then, when phylloxera wiped out most of these plantings, the area was replanted with a large proportion of Cabernet...

These days, one of the most exciting stories is in South Africa, where newly...
