1 comment

Champagne, France / $38-$54 Retail

The Perrier-Jouet Champagne house celebrates its 200th anniversary year beginning at midnight on New Year's Eve. More than 300 separately fermented base wines were tasted to make this multi-vintage blend which contains small amounts of reserve wines from previous vintages. Elegant and effervescent with an exquisite mousse, the wine yields delicate aromas of citrus, baked goods, spice and mineral notes. It has layered flavors of apple, pear, toast and more citrus, and a lively, refreshing texture with great acidity. Drink it with caviar, smoked salmon, truffled dishes, oysters, pommes frites and other salty, crispy foods. Buy it at: Lakeview Grocery, Prytania Liquor, Rouses, Dorignac's, Zuppardo's, Acquistapace's Covington Supermarket and some Canseco's, Robert's Fresh Markets, Breaux Marts, Martin Wine Cellars and Winn-Dixies. Drink it at: K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen, Broussard's, Stella!, M Bistro and Harrah's. — Brenda Maitland
