Lambrusco & a lil' French w/ Tim from Classic Wines

The bookends are Lambrusco, and the in-between include a Loire Valley, a Rhône Valley, and a French Burgundy. Enter the in-between...if you dare.

NV Cleto Chiarli “Vecchia Modena” Lambrusco di Sorbara (Emilia-Romagna, Italy), $18
"Wait, there are red sparkling's?" This revelation comes up every six weeks or so in the shop, and watching customers mouths widen in delight and eyes crinkle at the corner is just as satisfying, as we imagine, watching a kid's delight when discovering money from the Tooth Fairy. While the kids buy candy with their hard-earned tooth winnings you can be sipping this scrumptious Lambrusco. It's just as beautiful and light as a rosé with full red cherry fruit and a long dry finish. Buy, chill, drink, repeat should be your mantra for “Vecchi Modena” Lambrusco this summer.
 
2016 Chateau Langlois, Sancerre (Loire Valley, France), $22
Loving a type of wine can be as personal as geeking out over your favorite celebrity - "there's a personal connection" (people will insist) – your wine always look good in a glass (your celeb fabulous on any screen.) Make this Sancerre your Beyoncé, your Ellen, your Priyanka Chopra and gush over its sheer minerality and brightness. 
 
2014 Les Herities du Comte Lafon, Vire-Clesse (Burgundy, France), $37
Spoil yourself with this carefully produced, partially oaked, buttery delightfulness of a Chardonnay. It's balanced with dry notes of fresh tropical fruit that will leave you jovial, jaunty, and jolly.
 
2014 Château d'Or et de Gueules, “Les Cimels” Costières de Nîmes (Rhône Valley, France), $15
Each of Diane de Puymorin's wines is given a name originating in Old Occitan; "Les Cimels" translates into 'bouquet of flowers'. This very deliberate winemaker uses organic practices which include solar energy and making their own compost. A blend of Syrah, Carignan, and Grenache, Les Cimels is sure to mesmerize you with its extroverted black currant notes and velvety smooth body. 
 
NV Cleto Chiarli “Vigneto Cialdini” Lambrusco di Grasparossa di Castelvetro (Emilia-Romagna, Italy), $18
This Lambrusco is the definition of a that perfect first date that you only see in the movies. Its bubbles are playful, its plum hue beautiful and romantic, and the bright fruitiness is passionate. Bring this bottle on the date of your dreams and drink it under the stars with someone fantastic!
