Pinot Brut Nature
Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc
Rheinhessen, Germany

This Pinot Sekt is so easy to drink you might be done before you finish reading about it. It is made in the Blanc de Noirs style, which just means red grapes were used to make white wine. The juice is pressed very gently so no skin color will get into the must. In the cellar, no sulfur was being used, and no dosage was added for the bottle fermentation. It is full of energy with lots of floral and fruity notes. As recommended for most well made sparkling wine you should drink this from a wine glass and enjoy it with many kinds of food that need a little acid.

Charles Dufour Bulles de Comptoir
Pinot Noir
Champagne, France

The Bulles de Comptoir series is always a limited edition of wines for a specific year, and this one is a rosé wine made with 60% from a cuvée from different plots and a parcel called "Le Champ du Clos”. It is very much driven by light red fruit, but also buttery notes, and you can taste some of the clay and limestone the grapes grow on. Ideally, you should drink this from a wine glass and have this with a real meal or other savory snacks, but of course also with little sweet things before or after dinner.
