2016 Partners Make Rouge et Blanc A Huge Success Rouge et Blanc Wine and Food Event is one of the most anticipated events each year in Southwest Louisiana. Now in its tenth year, this sellout event, has increased from 500 attendees to 1,750 and has grown from a one-day event to a full week of delicious food and wine experiences. It’s all thanks to the generosity of this community and our generous corporate supporters. Enjoy our 2016 Rouge et Blanc festivities!

Aerator pourers are also very popular. They attach to the bottle and instantly aerate the wine while you pour the wine into a glass. This generally means less mess and more wine for you. But be aware—aerator pourers tend to be more fragile and, depending on the maker, their effectiveness varies. Some products include the aerator, decanter, and pourer all in one, but again, effectiveness varies by brand.

Wine aerators, conversely, are growing in popularity. According to multiple reports, and depending on the type of wine, this method has many benefits. Aerators allow wine to breathe and oxygenate before consumption. This opens up the wine aromas and softens the flavor profile. With an aerator, not only do you avoid waste, but the time involved in the aeration process is immediate. Aerators are also simple to transport. Considering price, you are more likely to save money by purchasing an aerator rather than a traditional decanter. Aerators can usually be purchased for around $20, though prices vary.

Bottle stoppers are another fun accessory to enhance your wine experience. From Star Wars characters to stoppers that look like packaged condoms (now there’s a conversation piece!), there are more options than ever before. For ease and convenience, there’s also a smart hygrometer/ thermometer temperature and humidity sensor complete with a humidity monitor that provides alerts for food and red wine. These alerts can be accessed by iPhone and Android via an app.

Traditional decanters are quickly becoming less favorable among the wine community due to two main setbacks. First, one must wait up to 30 minutes for the wine to be optimally exposed to air. The second setback involves potential waste. You likely would pour the entire bottle into the decanter; whatever is not consumed by the end of the day tends to go bad.

Everyone knows the general wine rules—white wine with chicken or fish; red with beef. But which wines best complement our Southwest Louisiana Cajun cuisine? According to Nick Sensat, General Manager at Ember Grille & Wine Bar, Cajun food has a strong foundation in both French and Spanish styles. “It’s only natural that [Cajun food] would pair well with wines from these areas.” Cajun food pairs well with some French and Spanish wines because they tend to have a lower alcohol content. Cajun food is spicy. Sensat says wines with a higher alcohol content can bring out too much of that heat. “Some pairings I have found that work really well are boudin with a Rioja from Spain or a Syrah from the Rhone Valley in France,” says this experienced sommelier. “Neither wine is overly powerful and each complement the richness of rice dressing without overpowering it. This works especially well if you have smoked boudin.” Red beans and rice pairs nicely with a Chablis or an unoaked Chardonnay. Sensat says, “My personal favorite to drink with red beans and rice is a Beaujolais. It’s relatively inexpensive and something I usually have on hand at home anyway.” Sensat recalls once pairing New Orleans style BBQ shrimp and grits with a bone dry Riesling (a wine that has no residual sugar and therefore isn’t sweet. He suggests wines from Alsace—look for the word “Trocken” on the label). “It was the perfect combination of rich, sweet, spicy and decadent all rolled into one. Probably one of the best and most unexpected dining experiences I can remember. “

Things to Know Before You Go

• Know which entrance matches your ticket – Gold or Red. This may save you time in the entrance lines and keeps the lines moving quickly.

We want you to have a wonderful fun experience at Rouge et Blanc, so here is a list of six tips to help maximize your enjoyment at Lake Charles’ biggest wine event of the year.

• Rouge et Blanc is an outdoor event and we all know the weather can be unpredictable. Be prepared. Pack a portable poncho or small umbrella, just in case it rains. • Dress comfortably and, again, according to the weather. October is a transition month between seasons. It might be warm enough for short sleeves or you may need a sweater or lightweight jacket. Much of the event takes place on grassy areas, so wear appropriate comfortable shoes. • It may not seem like the pourers are pouring very much into your glass, but those little sips can catch up to you after a couple dozen samples. Pace yourself (You have four hours!), eat food in between wine tasting, and drink plenty of water. Staying hydrated is key. • Remember, the event is for people age 21 and older only. • Don’t drink and drive. Stay safe and make a plan ahead of time for how you will get back home.

Choosing A Wine by Its Label: Trends in Label Art Design


There is an ancient romance between wine and the arts, perhaps because wine is a work of art itself. Much like a painting, wine must be crafted and perfected under the right conditions, and if all of the stars align, magic is made by the winemaker’s brush. Donald Hess, a man famous for his art collections and his wineries, framed it quite well when he said, “Both wine and art are about creativity and communication.” It makes sense that now, wine labels are becoming more and more like miniature masterpieces.” The trend in creating art to adorn the bottles of your favorite wines has been blossoming for years and wine label art has come a long way. At one time, American winemakers tried to make their labels look more like their European counterparts. Today, wine labels are unique and daring, appealing to a wide array of drinkers. Now it is common for winemakers to commission original works of art for their labels. A few years ago there was an influx of red and black used in wine labels to appeal to customers with a sophisticated palette, and now consumers might find wine labels decorated with a sophisticated horror motif, using twisted trees or mythical creatures to appeal to customers. One Australian Shiraz’s label looks like a boarding pass with graphics similar to those on an airplane safety card to direct the drinker on the proper imbibing method. Inkwell wines have labels inspired by Rorschach test inkblots, which probably makes for interesting discussion towards the end of the bottle. For a conversation piece, or bottle as the case may be, you might bring over a bottle called Night of the Living Red, which has a red, wax-covered seal and an attached envelope with nightmarish illustrations. There is no shortage in bold, exciting new wine label trends keeping the romance between wine and art very much alive.

Wine – Once Opened, its Days Are Numbered The common wine connoisseur and the causal wine drinker face the same dilemma after opening their favorite bottle of vino: Do I finish it now, or do I save it for later? (Leftover wine is not an oxymoron for everyone.) While wine that is unopened can last for a year past its printed date and fine wines can last for decades, when you finally open your favorite bottle, the same principal applies no matter its quality. The clock starts ticking. If you’re a white wine drinker, once your bottle is opened, you typically have two to three days to finish your wine before it goes bad. However, if you are a lover of reds, you have one to two weeks to savor your favorite cabernet sauvignon. There are ways to tell if your wine has gone bad before you open it so you don’t have to bother with the sour taste of spoiled wine. If there is a change in the color of the liquid, and your wine looks cloudy, it’s simply too late. You can also check to see if there is a dusty sediment in the bottom of the bottle. If you see these things, or a leaky cork, save your taste buds the trouble and open a new bottle! There are ways to extend the shelf-life of your wine so that you can avoid throwing out your favorite Tempranillo or Viognier. Storing your opened wine in a cool, dark place like your refrigerator will extend its life. If you purchase a wine saver like the VacuVin or an AirCork, your wine may be good for up to an extra three days on top of its natural expiration. One off-beat method for storing wine is to pour your leftovers into a mason jar. The lid of the jar creates an airtight seal which can help your wine last for five more days . . . as if you will need that long.


like fine wine, should get better with time.

According to Christopher Hillen, Regional Territory Manager at Crystal of America/Riedel USA, the correct stemware is in many ways more important than the wine we put inside it. “The wrong glass shape for your wine can dramatically affect the aromas and flavors that we perceive on our pallets. This can lead to unpleasant flavors such as bitterness and sourness being the only things we taste; rather than all that awesome other stuff that winemakers intend.” For more information on proper use of stemware, attend Hillen’s Riedel Comparative Glass Workshop, Thursday, October 6 at the Majestic Hall at Walnut Grove, 5 – 6:30 p.m. For ticket information, visit “Whether you are a wine expert, or just someone who enjoys the occasional glass, everyone can get something fun out of this event,” Hillen says.

MORE TIPS ON STEMWARE: 1. Use a glass with a smooth thin rim. You want to feel the wine on your lips, not the glass! 2. Stemless wine glasses may be in vogue, but stemmed glasses have two advantages. They facilitate swirling and they prevent your hand from warming the wine. 3. Hand wash stemware with mild soap and dry with a cotton or linen towel. Dishwashers etch the glass surface and leave a detergent residue.

Grapeology 101 Spanish explorers introduced grapes to America over three-hundred years ago, and today, we garner so many benefits from this amazing fruit. Although grapes have many redeeming qualities like being high in antioxidants and having the ability to protect your heart, perhaps the grape’s best-known-gig is the role it plays in wine-making. There are over 8,000 grape varieties stemming from over 60 species. However, four major wine grape varieties likely account for some of your favorites.

RIESLING These grapes make light bodied white wines. They are most often grown in Germany’s Rhine region and have sweet fruity flavors and aromas of flowers and fruits. Riesling grapes have a few varieties such as Crouchen, Paarl Riesling, and Clare Riesling. You might like your traditional Riesling wine, but some of the varietals are added to wines like Chardonnay to give it weight. SAUVIGNON BLANC Sauvignon Blanc grapes make medium bodied white wines. They come from a versatile white grape variety that creates an array of white wines. Other Sauvignon Blanc flavors and aromas include apples, melons, peppers, and smoke. Sauvignon Blanc wine flavors depend heavily on where the grapes are grown. The most famous wines made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes come from Bordeaux and the Loire Valley in France. These grapes also make up Bordeaux Blanc wines. PINOT NOIR These grapes make light-to-medium bodied red wines. They are grown mostly in France in areas like Burgundy and Champagne, and are considered to be very finicky. When done right, Pinot Noir wine from these grapes should be lighter in color than other red wines. Pinot Noir flavors and aromas include roses, fruits, black cherry, berry, and currant. If you like a good Rosé, you will be happy to know these grapes make up some Rosés and Red Bourgogne. MERLOT Merlot grapes produce a medium bodied red wine and originate from France, but can be found in Bordeaux, Chile, Australia, Napa Valley, and Sonoma. With flavors and aromas like black cherry, berries, plum, chocolate, and some herbs, it’s no wonder so many wine drinkers think Merlot is easier to drink than other reds. This grape is blended with others to make Red Bordeaux and Super Tuscan wines.

Rosé wines have made a big resurgence over the last decade, increasing retail sales and volume to near 50% while at the same time dispelling the idea of being low quality. Surprisingly, men comprise a high percentage of Rose’ patrons. Of course, with the added exposure, the proverbial “grapevine” stretches out in further reaches, spreading the good news. Why the change? The primary reason for Rosé’s return is the serious focus by wine makers to refine and improve their efforts to bring to market a Rosé (possibly the oldest known of wines) with a reputable character. In other words, they strive to make a good Rosé from the beginning of the production cycle (unlike the old process of simply mixing a red wine and white wine together in a blend). Three possible techniques are used when making Rosé: skin contact (used when producing Rosé as a primary wine), saigneé, and blending. Skin contact uses crushed, black-skinned grapes, allowing their juices to commingle with the skins for a short period (12 hours to 3 days), pressing (discarding the skins unlike in red wine making), and fermenting the juices. Saignee’ (from the French word for “bleeding”) involves removing liquid from the early stages of red wine production to intensify its character. The “pink juice” can then be fermented to make a Rosé. In comparison, “blending” is a combination of red and white wines to make a pink of lower quality. In French wine country, reputations have a higher value than profiting from a low grade product. The French have even made the process of “blending” illegal in some areas. Rosé wines, not unlike the petals of roses, come in many hues of pink, from bright purple to an opaque hint of redness, all depending on the beginning foundations of their creation. It is important to note that Rosé wines have a shorter shelf life than reds. In addition, these revived liquid enjoyments are made across the world, providing an economical (average bottle costs $12) and versatile pallet-pleasing option complimenting almost any dining experience. So what do you say, my friend? How about a Rosé?
