Tasting Notes

Incredible opening aroma of freshly squeezed grapefruit, pale pink color and an addictive, pillowy entry followed by lip-smacking acidity that finishes with a kiss of sweetness. After a few minutes, you can still taste the citrus pith. This can be used in so many ways, but a simple pairing with sparkling wine is probably enough to make anyone very, very happy.

Staff Pick Notes

From the pale summer color to the charming aroma of fresh grapefruit, this Pamplemousse liqueur (grapefruit liqueur) is your hot weather drink companion. Created in 1885 by Emile Giffard in Angers (Loire), Giffard started as a pharmacy turned distillery. Today, the 5th generation runs this family business and is still making some of the highest quality liqueur in the world. Here is what I love to create with this liqueur: Kir Royal with sparkling brut (I used the Delacroix), regular Kir but using a rose wine and if you are adventurous, try it in a margarita.

Astor's Glossary of Terms

Loire

There’s a lot to remember when it comes to the Loire. Novices, take note: Cabernet Franc is a great alternative to Cabernet Sauvignon, Muscadet is unparalleled as a companion to shellfish, and Cour Cheverny is the best white wine appellation you’ve never heard of. As diverse as Loire wines are, one day soon you'll know your Melon de Bourgogne from your Romorantin.
