Champagne
J. Lasalle
Chigny-Les-Roses
Brut Rosé
$52

Pink, elegant, festive and made by 3 generations of women. My favorite Rosé Champagne. It is what will be on my table this holiday. Without a doubt, it is great with turkey (roasted, fried, smoked, or on the grill), stuffing, gravy, beans, cranberry sauce...you name it...this wine goes well with Thanksgiving. Pass up those California Cabs and Bordeaux. You're about to have a big meal! Champagne is lighter, refreshing, friendlier with most foods and you can drink more of it.

Made as a true "Vin de Terroir" representative of the Village (Chigny-Les-Roses) in the Montagne de Reims, they use all three Champagne varietals, but mostly Pinot Noir with 3-4% of still wine added to give that soft salmon color. The winemakers are female and the wine is definitely, what in the wine world is considered, "feminine". Gentle, soft, aromatic but with great structure. All wines are aged a minimum of 5 years before release. If you don't take my advice by having it at your holiday table, please try it as an apertif with some Brie de Meaux.

Brie de Meaux
Cow
France
$30

This is the real deal. This is the Brie from the home of Brie: the village of Meaux. Made just outside Paris, accept no imitations! Mushrooms, and earth are the predominant flavors. It goes especially well with a little Rosé Champagne.
