Mallory's Notes:

Champagne is not something that I drink every day, but when I do take a bottle home it’s probably Laherte Frères. As far as grower Champagne goes, they are one of the best. Winemaker Aurélien Laherte is devoted to practicing organic and biodynamic viticulture while implementing generations of knowledge passed down from his forebearers to produce beautiful blended and single-vineyard wines. The ‘Rosé de Meunier' is one of my favorite bottlings they offer. About 10% of the cuvée is still red Meunier which gives this wine heftier structure and a complex, full-bodied palate. Beautiful aromas of dried rose petal, orange peel, and crushed red berry fruit explode from the glass while the palate has a soft hazelnut richness and a bright, rocky minerality to keep everything in balance. This wine over delivers for $60 y’all, check it out!

What do I like to drink?

I've been very into Sicily, Portugal, and Spain recently. All I know is in this sweltering NC heat - it’s got to be cold! I love a fuller bodied rosé, a clean, crisp pet-nat, or a mineral-driven white. I don’t always enjoy wine with food so I appreciate versatile wines that drink nicely on their own or along with food.
