Live! From Rouge gorge!

CaptCrunch | Oct 14, 201606:32 PM

Alone at the bar of rouge gorge and -lo and behold! - they have wifi!

While I am drinking my way through their list of wine by the glass (the list is massive, I doubt I'll even reach the reds), I thought it might be neat if I gave my impressions.

Now I hate writing on my ipad (I feel like I'm finger painting with gouache) but I do have the luxury of wine and time so why not?

I space is absolutely beautifull and incredibly spacious. They have a very long bar and a ton of tables. The place is buzzing already and we are only a bit over 9pm.

Whitewashed brick walls, light woods, ambiant lighting... it doesn't feel too crowded or formatted.

There is a douchebag dj (again? Wtf? What's wrong with bars and weekends?) but I have the power of spotify so there.

I have tried their "tartelette au panais" which is a tad more expensive than it should but not much at 11$.

Tried a cremant de loire (which was ok... the producer is chateau de breze) and I am currently drinking a bland de noir brut champagne from Barbichon which is fan-ta-stic (and 22$/glass)

The texture is all in subtility. There is not so much an attack as a gradual continuum of flavours.... a hint of acidity, some tart apples, pears? The bubbles are very fine and almost goes unnoticed.... a really enjoyable experience.
