It’s Friday, and we think that’s as good a reason as any to bust out the bubbly! In our current issue, Robert Simonson explores the evolving role of the sommelier, a role that may be shifting to a less glamorous but more approachable affair. Today’s Drink of the Week—the cremant du Jura rosé from Domaine Andre et Mireille Tissot—embodies this ethos. Crafted from biodynamically grown grape native to France’s easterly Jura region, it’s a sophisticated sparkler with an easy-going pricetag. We were first introduced to this budget bubbly by Patrick Cappiello, the t-shirt-wearing grape geek behind the wine list at Manhattan’s Pearl & Ash (get more on Cappiello in the current issue), and its bright, fresh fruit flavors and yeasty richness make it a great match for food, or simply a Friday afternoon.
