Alfred Gratien's Affordable Luxury, Rosé Brut Champagne
January 16, 2017
A Note from Sergio

In the grand pantheon of bubbly wines, Champagne is singular. Its ability to conjure elegance, magic and sophistication make it special. Champagne's beauty, its individuality, its ability to transmit terroir and vintage, and its ways with food--especially difficult dishes--make it unique. You can never go wrong with good Champagne, and today, I'm delighted to present one of IWM's signature Champagne bottlings, Alfred Gratien Rosé Brut NV.

I talk a lot about peak moments, those special times when everything--the conversation, the food, the lighting, the music, and, of course, the wine--work in concert to make magic. Any wine that fits the occasion perfectly can create a peak moment, but few do it as effortlessly as Champagne. For this reason, I like to keep a few bottles of beloved Champagnes on hand, and Alfred Gratien's is an easy one to stock, to love, and to pop whenever you want to turn an ordinary moment into an extraordinary time.

Showing a beautiful pink salmon color, this food-friendly rosé bursts with tiny bubbles that stream endlessly. It has all the exciting aromas that one would expect in a rosé Champagne: rose petals, strawberries, raspberries, Bing cherries, brioche, and subtle spice. On the fruity yet elegant palate, this non-vintage Champagne shows great structure, and its effervescence tingles the senses all the way to its very long finish. Alfred Gratien crafts this wine from 45% Chardonnay from Côtes des Blancs, 15% Pinot Noir from Montagne de Reims and 40% Pinot Meunier from the Marne Valley, and it uses traditional methods to make this wine, including a first fermentation in small oak casks, no malolactic fermentation, and aging in oak for six months before release. more info
