2014 Sancerre Rouge “Chant de l’Archer”

Daniel Chotard

2014 Sancerre <em>Rouge</em> “Chant de l’Archer” Daniel Chotard - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



 Mexican-Style Spare Ribs (!) à la Juliette Chotard

At first I thought the Chotards had come up with an American recipe to charm our readers, but Daniel’s wife, Juliette, assured me this is a dish she makes every year during harvest to share with their team. “Chant de l’Archer is a convivial wine that calls for a convivial recipe,” she said. Rub the ribs  with a mix ofsmoked paprika, cumin, coriander, oregano, brown sugar, cayenne, and lime zest and marinate overnight. The next day, bake for two hoursbefore firing up the grill and cooking until golden brown. Brush with chipotle  barbecue sauceand serve with lime wedges. The Sancerre rouge’s acidity and red  cherry notes complement the sweet and spicy ribs to perfection. —Emily Spillmann
