NV Pierre Sparr Cremant d'Alsace Rose: CORKED.
NV Gratien Cuvee Paradis
Opened to celebrate getting that 12 foot tall piece of forest standing up in our living room, decorating to follow. I love Cuvee Paradis: to me they're more complex than most, with apple, various citrus notes in the lemon/lime/orange range, and that warm yeasty-buttery brioche thing. This one has a sweet-tart lime juice streak in the finish, which only seems to make it more interesting. A stunner.
My wine shopping and I have never had a problem. Just a perpetual race between the bankruptcy court and Hell.--Rogov
