Gerard Bertrand Cremant Brut 2011
Looking for something to uncork that's as elegant as Champagne, but you don't want to pay Champagne prices? Consider a Cremant (Creh-MAHN, with a French nasal N at the end if you want to go for it.) Cremant, looks like Champagne, with its wire cage and cork that comes out with a pop. It's frothy and bubbly in the glass, a French-made sparkling wine that's prickly, crisp and dry. Made in the same methode champenoise as Champagne. Cremant was established by the 1970s as formal category for sparklers from Burgundy, Alsace, the Loire, and Limoux. The wine makers of Limoux claim that they've been making sparkling wine since the 1500s, long before those upstarts from Champagne popped their first cork. Limoux is in the hills of Southwestern France not far from the medieval walled town Carcassone.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
