Wine of the Week - Bernard Remy Brut Rosé Champagne

We think it would be a little silly to have any wine but rosé Champagne as our Valentine's Day Wine of the Week. Bernard Rémy comes to the rescue with their offering, which recently received praise from the Wine Advocate. Stephan Reinhardt writes:
"Here, the wine is intense yet lean, straight and dry but always charming, with intense fruit flavors and a good, persistent structure. Remarkably finessed, this is a serious classic to be served as an aperitif, with fish or cold meat."

Capitalizing on the recent upswing in attention for grower Champagne, smaller houses that have been overshadowed by the large grands marques are now gaining more recognition. Bernard Rémy is one such producer. Founded in 1968 in the southerly village of Allemant in the heart of the Cotes des Blancs, Champagne Bernard Rémy debuted on the domestic market in France in the early '70s. Bernard’s son Rudy began working under the tutelage of his father in 1996, and completely took the helm at Champagne Bernard Rémy in 2008. Still though Bernard is never too far from sight. This father-son collaboration now offers a fine range of local, Grand Cru, vintage, and rosé Champagnes.
