Staff Pick Notes

What is Crèmant, you ask? Simply put, it is a French sparkler made in the Champagne method but falling outside the geographical boundaries of the Champagne region. It may also be made from atypical grape varieties such as Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, or Riesling. It's also a great way to get a terrific French sparkler without the upcharge. This Crèmant de Bourgogne (from Pommard, specifically), is a medium-bodied crowd pleaser and a great value option for those unwilling to part with the apple, stone fruit, and toast found in its more expensive cousins to the north. Predominantly from Pinot Noir and a splash of Chardonnay, anytime is a great time to enjoy it.

Burgundy

The range of wine styles offered in Burgundy rivals that of any other region. In Chablis, Chardonnay is left unoaked to produce lean, crisp, steely wines with incredible acidity - a far cry from the vanilla-oak bombs that so many consumers associate with this grape. Fans of rich, unctuous, and well-oaked Chardonnay will enjoy Chassagne-Montrachet, whose age-worthy offerings offer all the fatness of a California wine, yet retain a very Burgundian, mineral-driven core and great acidity....

Chardonnay

From Champagne to Chablis, it's hard (not to mention unpleasant) to avoid this famous white variety. During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking world. It is a flexible, eager-to-please grape, responding well to just about anything a winemaker...
