Champagne may be considered the traditional wine for most celebrations, but what could be more spontaneously festive and happiness-inducing than juicy, bright Gamay? This joyous Côte de Brouilly is like the arrival of spring in a bottle, warming and invigorating after the gray days of winter. Brambly, full of energy and verve, with a pleasant Aperol-esque bitterness and loads of floral accents and sappy stems, it has a bouncy lightness that is the perfect pick-me-up and salute to all things merry. Who needs bubbles when you can avail yourself of this high-spirited beauty and toast to the change in the season, a ball game, or even a Friday! Here’s to, well, whatever!
