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 & TOASTY MACAROON

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.

2017 Gewurztraminer Grand Cru "Pfersigberg" (Baur, Charles)

Charles Baur, Gewurztraminer Grand Cru "Pfersigberg", Alsace, France 2017

{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.

2019 Pinot Noir Alsace (Baur, Charles)

Charles Baur, Pinot Noir, Alsace, France 2019

{organic} 100% Pinot Noir

SILKY BLACK PLUM, SOFT HERBS & EARTH, ELEGANT

Arnaud Baur is proud of his organic vineyards in Alsace, where organic isn't the norm. He points to the brown, lifeless rows of his neighbor's non-organic vineyards, a stark contrast to his vibrantly green vines. A Pinot Noir from Alsace, despite being the region’s most significant red grape, is something we don’t see every day. Historically it's been too cold here to ripen red grapes, but as the world warms, spots like this are increasingly producing delicate reds.

Serving suggestion: Wintery fare: choucroute garnie (sauerkraut, sausage & potatoes in white wine) or a holiday feast w/ a roast bird & root veggies.

2018 Riesling Alsace (Baur, Charles)

Charles Baur, Riesling, Alsace, France 2018

{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.
