Staff Pick Notes

A sparkling rosé of Gamay made in an off-dry style? Before you scoff at this description and say you don't like sweet wines, I highly recommend a taste test. And I've even got a cheese pairing or two to compliment this juice! Jean-Paul Brun - a wine making renegade and master of vinifying still Gamay in Beaujolais - makes this delicious, fruity beverage in the méthode ancestrale, where fermentation finishes in the bottle, creating the bubbles. The style recalls the wines of Cerdon du Bugey. If you can't find Cacio di Langa - a young, soft blend of cow/goat/sheep's milk with candied strawberries - shoot for a milder chèvre and serve it with a fresh fruit jam. The tang of the cheese and the combo of fruit flavors are a natural match with this wine. Once you've experienced it, you may not want to share it with anyone and I don't blame you!

Beaujolais Nouveau is perhaps the most gulpable wine...
