Ribaude’s Organic Dry Cider is made from 30 apple varieties collected in two separate harvests — one in October, one in November. The apples are washed, crushed, and fermented with ambient yeasts. The fermentation takes two months, and reaches an alcohol of between 3 and 5%. The nose is floral and earthy, with notes of dried fruit and dried roses or daisies. The mouth is very dry, with a hint of tannin, relatively low acid, and a faint tartness — notes of black tea, leaves, baked apples, allspice, straw and almonds.  Serve this with another Norman delicacy: carefully ripened Camembert.

Ribaude makes a Rosé cider from pink-fleshed apples. It’s not organic like the other cuvées but we found it terrific. It’s particularly well balanced — more tart than the Organic Dry, with both more fruit and more acid. The nose shows notes of ripe tart apples, spices, and orange peel. The mouth is crisp and refreshing, with less funk and a bit more fruit. It’s still not sweet, but not as bone-dry as the Organic Dry. Serve with appetizers at a late-summer dinner party, or with homemade crèpes at your next brunch.

For traditional Côtes du Rhône, it’s hard to beat Christelle Coulange’s “Cuvée Mistral” 2020.  The cuvée is well named, as the Coulange family vineyards are perched high on a hill overlooking the Rhône, literally on the northern border of that huge appellation. (In fact, on a clear day you can see Mont Blanc, some 200 miles away). The altitude helps keep the wine fresh, which can be a challenge in much of the Côtes du Rhône. The 2020 vintage is a good example – though the Grenache/Syrah blend (80%-20%) features fully ripe strawberry and plum fruit, it has enough acidity to keep it fresh. It drinks nicely on its own, with less extraction and more fruit than the Goubert’s version.

Paget’s 2020 Rosé is made from a local grape called Grolleau. It’s simple, dry, fresh, and a serious bargain. The nose shows strawberries with a hint of earthiness and mint. The mouth is very dry and light, with red currant fruit, excellent freshness and pleasant echo of tannin. Nicolas has managed to keep both alcohol and bottle price impressively low. Don’t overthink this cuvée and it wont let you down.

Jean-Marc Monnet is a very small producer making traditionally styled Beaujolais, juicy and exuberant. No oak, no cellaring required -- just pure, fruit-forward, old school Beaujolais. Monnet's Chiroubles is lightweight and crackling, but in a warm year like 2020 packs a lovely floral ripeness and plenty of body. Take it along to a tailgate for a Fall football game, or serve it with your Thanksgiving turkey. It’s bright and intense, with notes of cranberry, peony, and graphite.

More (+)
The blend is the same as in the past – Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre – but Florence has changed the vinification method from “saignée,” where the free-run juice from the just-harvested grapes is collected, to “direct pressing,” where the grapes are pressed before they have time to macerate on the skins and turn into red wine. This method gives the wine more tension and texture, and Florence explained she made the switch in search of a refreshing, lightweight wine. The rosé this year is a crisp 12.5% alcohol, with notes of “grenadine, minerals, and tension." We think this will be the perfect match for summer heat.

Our perennial favorite from Chauvin’s Domaine le Souverain is his Séguret — 65% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 5% Mourvèdre. Raised in stainless steel, this wine is pure, delicious fruit: look for plums, lavender, minerals and dark berries. There’s excellent freshness and attractive tannins, making it an option for both cocktail hour and dinner. There’s lots of Rhône wine out there for under $20, but almost none of it is this good.
