Cremant d'Alsace Brut (Baur, Charles)

Charles Baur, Cremant d'Alsace, Alsace, France NV

{organic} 40% Pinot Blanc, 40% Auxerrois, 20% Chardonnay

BRIGHT LEMON & BRIOCHE, SPICED APPLE & ZESTY MINERAL

We all have to choose our battles, and some of us have proudly taken up arms in pursuit of sparkling wines that taste like Champagne. This is what we’ve been fighting for! Brimming with creamy brioche-ish aromas, glistening with vibrant citrus, and seductively indulging us with spicy apple pie notes, this golden gem carries itself with a distinctively similar poise and balance to the revered bubblies found further west. If it’s become cliché for us to remind each other to drink beautiful sparkling to celebrate being alive, then let’s drink it to celebrate its being alive! Cheers!

Serving Suggestion: Chicken pie w/ spinach, mushrooms, & melted gouda. Gravlax on pumpernickel w/ dill.

Cremant d'Alsace Brut Rose (Baur, Charles)

Charles Baur, Cremant d'Alsace Brut Rose, Alsace, France NV

{organic} 100% Pinot Noir

TART STRAWBERRY & WHITE CHERRY, CRACKED STONE & COOKIE DOUGH

Of the impressive, non-Champagne areas that produce French sparkling wine under the name, “Crémant,” Alsace is perhaps the very most exciting. Arnaud Baur’s affinity for bubbly offerings has remained consistently and particularly impressive for us, and while this refreshing rosé may not quite rival its white counterparts in yeasty, Champagne-ish maturity, it more than rises to the occasion, stepping sideways and finding a fresher, more fruit-forward voice while remaining chiseled, very dry, and with traces of biscuity richness. Beautiful!

Serving Suggestion: Choucroute au poisson (trout in heavy cream sauce w/ cumin, thyme leaves, & sauerkraut). Linguini w/ fried capers & puttanesca sauce.

2014 Gewurztraminer Grand Cru "Pfersigberg" (Baur, Charles)

Charles Baur, Gewurztraminer Grand Cru "Pfersigberg", Alsace, France 2014 {organic}

100% Gewurztraminer

LYCHEE & MANGO, CANDIED GINGER & SWEET SPICE

Look at your wine, now back to me. This is the wine your wine could smell like if it were Grand Cru Gewürtztraminer. Powerfully aromatic and fresh, with intense aromas of tropical fruit, Mandarin orange, grapefruit zest, ripe canteloupe, gardenia flowers and roses. Very full-bodied and rich, with a honeyed sweetness and a clean finish. The Pfersigberg soil is oysters (well, limestone), and is so light colored it reflects the sun on to the grapes, ripening them perfectly. Look down, back up, where are you? You're on a tropical beach. I'm on a horse.

Serving suggestion: Vegetables & shrimp in a sweet & spicy Thai red curry sauce. Tarte Tatin w/ fresh whipped cream.

2014 Pinot Blanc (Baur, Charles)

Charles Baur, Pinot Blanc, Alsace, France 2014

100% Pinot Blanc

AUTUMNAL, ORCHARD-ISH CRISPNESS & BLOSSOMY AROMAS

Juicy and tangy yet delicate and understated, this elegant Alsatian offers us both the vitality and mystery that we crave from these French Rhinelands. Pinot Blanc’s position here remains less lofty than that of it’s darker-skinned counterpart, Pinot Gris, but what it sometimes lacks in power and perfume, it makes up for with subtlety and sublime drinkability. Charles Baur’s Eguisheim estate is a modest, manageable 40 acres, allowing great attention to detail in both the vineyard and the cellar.

Serving Suggestion: Cabbage salad w/ golden delicious wedges, walnuts, & blue cheese. Camembert & other creamy, cow’s milk cheeses.

2014 Riesling (Baur, Charles)

Charles Baur, Riesling, Alsace, France 2014 {organic}

100% Riesling

LEMON & GREEN APPLE, FLINTY & DELICATELY BLOSSOMY AROMAS

Alsatian Riesling not only occupies an especially lofty place in the hearts of seasoned enthusiasts of both the variety and the region, but it often represents a kind of Riesling-er-rific gateway drug or electrifyingly zesty tidal pool whose distinctive aromas and typically distinctive lack of residual sugar converts many Riesling skeptics into true believers. This example from Charles Baur delivers that classic clarity, intensity of tangy fruit, and ethereal perfume combining white flowers and flint.

Serving Suggestion: Creamy, washed-rind cheeses. Beef & lamb shawarma w/ tangy tzatziki & tahini sauces.
