Staff Pick Notes

I opened the Pierre Moncuit after watching the last of my teams get eliminated from the World Cup.

Exceptionally tart, with a green apple skin and brioche palate, the minerality is especially refreshing after crying over Japan, Korea, the US, and the Netherlands. The zippy texture is especially pleasant with Mediterranean food, especially eggplant and chickpea dishes. A good bubbly to share with friends, in victory or defeat. Prost!
