Who's superstitious these days anyway? Well, I guess it depends on the situation, because if I'm doing a particular activity when the Red Sox start a rally, I sure as heck continue doing said activity until it's over.
We'll be opening up some tasty French whites and reads, from classic Luberons to thirst-quenching Muscadets.
Lucien Albrecht Cremant d'Alsace Brut Rosé - $24.99
Lucien Albrecht Brut Rosé is made from 100% Pinot Noir. The whole cluster hand picked grapes, are softly pressed in a pneumatic press, hence the coral, light pink salmon color. Lucien Albrecht Brut Rosé is made by using the same methods as in Champagne, i.e “methode traditionnelle”. After the second fermentation in the bottle, lee ageing lasts for nine months, followed by remuage and disgorging.
Franck Peillot, Bugey Mondeuse - $25.00
From the Savoy region in France, this Bugey Producer makes a killer Mondeuse with Grape-y fruit character and a dense, dark color, with a peppery spice, a slightly wild, gamey note and a tannic bite on the finish.
Franck Peillot, Bugey Altesse Roussette Montagnieu - $30.00
Fermentation with natural yeasts (as with all of Peillot's wine) aging take place in steel and enamelled cement tanks; no wood is used at all for any of Peillot's wines at this point. Fresh, high-acid white that shows that Savoy can kick butt in the white wine world.
