Coronavirus: What wines have you stocked up on?
Post in the comments what you couldn't be quarantined without.
My current traditional method sparkling options.
I'll spare you the novel and only list my bubbles today, and why I picked them!
Milagro Winery Brut of Aleatico
Funky, fruit and herb driven sparkling from my local wine region, the Ramona Valley AVA in San Diego.
Francois Montand Blanc de Blanc
Lean, zippy, crisp bubbles from Jura, France. Great on it's own, and cheap enough to have with OJ or in a cocktail.
Laurent-Perrier Brut Cuvée Rosé
A unique, modern day Champagne. 100% Pinot Noir. Lively aromatics. This sparkling has sex appeal.
Szigeti 2014 Brut Blanc de Blanc
Austria's answer to a classic Chardonnay based Champagne. Perfectly balanced fruit, structure, and yeastiness. And the label is a great painting from Gustav Klimpt
Lini910 2005 Método Traditional Lambrusco Rosso
Only the most excellent, expressive, potent, and beautiful Lambrusco I've ever had. It's as if you bottled a classically trained opera singer and the whole Parma Italian Orchestra.
Bollinger Special Cuvée
A classic, textbook perfect Champagne. Bollinger is one of the few Champagne producers who still ferment and age in neutral oak barrels. It's a very toasty, leesy, sparkling, and the Queen of England drinks it every day.
Szigeti Brut of Grüner Veltliner
An amazing example of alternative thinking applied to classic, Champagne methods. Made from Austrias National grape, Grüner Veltliner, it has a very atypical personality that still resembles fine Champagne or Cremant.
Henri Champliau Brut Crément de Bourgogne
Think of it as Champagne, made just south of Champagne. Crémant de Bourgogne is made from Burgundies pre-Chardonnay-era white, Aligote. It's an inarguably tasty wine. Nothing striking, nothing offensive, just kinda perfect.
