Nightcap Before Christmas #2

Allô Alsace! When Americans think about French wine, Bordeaux comes to most minds. For others, it’s Burgundy. And, of course, nothing could be more French than Champagne. It seems like the cool, northeasterly region nestled between the Vosges Mountains and Germany known as Alsace is oft overlooked. But Alsace has exceptional wines, especially if you’re a lover of whites, and deserves its due attention.

How to Select, Store, Chill, Open, and Serve Champagne

The perfect glass of Champagne starts with selecting a boutique, single-vineyard Champagne from a sustainable, family-owned estate. Henri’s Reserve expertly curates Champagnes that reflect the terroir of France’s finest private vineyards, the artistry of the winemakers and the legacies of the families behind them. The uniqueness and outstanding quality of these “boutique” Champagnes -both grown and made on organic and biodynamic estates – have made them the darlings of sommeliers and the world’s toughest wine critics.

Fall Fun at the Farms

Fall is the perfect season to enjoy your local CT farms in all their autumnal glory. This weekend, plan to pick a pumpkin or a bushel of apples, sip cider and chow down on donuts, hitch a hay ride or get lost in a corn maze.

The Cremant of the Crop

The wine was Jean-François Ganevat Crémant du Jura “La Combe” Rotalier, a sparkling wine from the fascinating wine region of Jura in eastern France. Jura, from which the term Jurassic comes, has topography similar to that found millions of years ago with the key soil types being limestone and marlstone. I was incredibly pleased with the wine.

Green Food Gift Guide Day 5: Boutique Bubbly

Certain people are challenging to buy gifts for because they have everything they could every want already or have very discerning taste. I like to select something they would never buy for themselves, possibly because they don’t know it exists. A rare food or wine with a great back story, for example. The Champagnes of Henri’s Reserve fit the bill and these top-ranked, family-owned, estate grape only boutique bubblies are two of my favorites. Their outstanding quality, fine flavors, limited availability, biodynamic production, and French cachet would delight even the most impossible foodies.
