Additional Wine Information

Story
Alfred Gratien is a small domaine demonstrating the artisanship and intimacy of tiny grower-producers but surpassing them in quantity. The winery achieves this balance by owning vineyards and buying grapes as well. One of the most highly respected producers in Champagne, Gratien adheres to traditional methods that yield cuvees of great depth and character. For instance, whereas many wineries ferment grapes in stainless-steel tanks, which are easier to use and maintain, Gratien still ferments in wooden barrels, to add extra roundness and structural complexity. For this same reason, the bottles are aged under cork as they go through their secondary fermentation, a time-consuming technique rarely seen today. All of this attention to detail shows up in the wines, which are as graceful as they are full and rich.
Sense
The nose delivers a faint scent of wild strawberries, warm brioche, spiced orange peel and ripe rhubarb.
Savor
Creamy on the front, the wine froths and foams in the mouth before leaving a long raspberry-tinged aftertaste.
Serve
Champagne is a far better food wine than it gets credit for. It can have the intensity to stand up to a variety of strong flavors, plus the texture for enjoying with such foods as tempura shrimp, consomme and sushi. And Rose Champagne like the Alfred Gratien is the most versatile of all when it comes to pairing. It has the delicacy to partner with light flaky fish yet enough fruity muscle to contend with dishes featuring duck or pork. Try it with recipes like Coriander-Rubbed Duck Breasts with Glazed Oranges and Alaskan Halibut Cioppino, available at williams-sonoma.com.
Serving Instructions
Serve well chilled: refrigerate the bottle for 45 minutes before serving.
