Is rosé Champagne ready to pop? In the Wall Street Journal, Lettie Teague looks at a growing trend in advance of Valentine’s Day. (subscription req.)

In Wine-Searcher, James Lawrence talks to Austrian Wine Marketing Board’s long-serving chief Wili Klinger about why he’s stepping down at the end of 2019.

Eric Asimov highlights 20 wines under $20 in the New York Times. “Most of the wines on the list that follows are small-production, made by dedicated producers using traditional practices, without compromise or labor-saving automation. The question is not “Why are they so expensive?” It is “Why don’t they cost more?” That’s a pretty good definition of value.”

In Grape Collective, Monty Waldin talks to Kalyna Monnoyer of Casa Raia about making organic, low-intervention Brunello di Montalcino.

In the Drinks Business: “One of Sauvignon Blanc’s biggest problems is the fact that the wine trade views it “like a crossbreed puppy – cute but lacking in class and complexity”, according to New Zealander Sam Harrop MW.”

Stephen Tanzer writes about a vertical tasting of Louis Jadot’s Corton Pougets in Vinous. “The wines were even more scented and complex as a group than I had anticipated, but they were firmly structured too—clearly built for slow evolution in bottle. If you’re a long-time fan of this bottling, that news will hardly come as a surprise.”

In the Washington Post, Dave McIntyre suggests looking to Argentina for interesting and affordable wines.

In the Robb Report, Sara L. Schneider looks ahead at wine trends in 2019.
