One of the great benefits of my new job is that I work around the corner from Chamber Street Wines, where I purchased the above bottle of 2010 Clos Roche Blanche Pineau d’Aunis, a rosé from Loire with sediment in the bottle that came highly recommended…a little tight, she said…indeed it blew our minds.

I love Lambic beers! Not the fruity kind with the essence of framboise or pêche or kriek, but the straight up funkified, mouth watering yet dry lambic beers from the Pajottenland region of Belgium. The insanely high, sour acidity of these beers, fermented with wild yeasts, means that they drink like the wines that I love best. They’re brilliant before a meal, and with most foods that I might eat. And they’re fantastic in the summer, as I discovered the other day, when I uncorked a bottle of Lindemans Cuvée René Gueuze Lambic.
