March Wine Picks

2020 Beurer Rose Trocken, Württemberg, Germany $13.99
Beurer makes a rosé that drinks like biodynamic Gatorade – this wine zings: it is pure energy. It is fresh like a spring garden around 6am just as the overeager sun pokes its gonzo eye above the horizon, pushing away the wet dew. This rosé is a saignée of Trollinger, Portugieser, Zweigelt and Spätburgunder, all farmed biodynamically and fermented with native yeast. -Vom Boden
Perfect for corned beef & cabbage or grilled shrimp tacos accompanied with prickly pear salsa.
2019 Domaine du Bouchot Pouilly-Fume Caillottes $36.99
Domaine du Bouchot was the first producer in Pouilly-Fume to become certified organic and recently finalized Demeter biodynamic certification. “Caillottes” is razor-sharp Sauvignon Blanc grown in Portlandian limestone that exudes purity, clarity, and freshness.
Celebrate spring by combining it with an asparagus/ goat cheese/ tarragon tart, Vichyssoise, or roasted cod & artichokes.

NV Etienne Calsac “Les Revenants” Champagne, France $124.99
While finishing his studies in 2010, Etienne replanted a few rows of ‘forgotten’ Champagne varieties in one of his family vineyards in the Côte de Sézanne. Pinot Blanc, Petit Meslier, and Arbanne were overlooked for decades, but Etienne was interested in making a Champagne ‘à l’ancienne’ – in other words, the old fashioned way. In 2016, he kept the entire harvest of these new plants, which was enough to fill one 600L barrel. The wine was kept in said barrel for six months and then spent 30 months on the lees before disgorgement in the spring of 2019. -Paris Wine Company
Around 1,000 bottles were made. Pair it up with classic Parisian poulet frites, a ham & gruyere omelette, or on its own with great friends!
