Wine of the Week


$16-$ 20

Imagine a glassful of tiny, steely pink beads that bubble and foam like a sea of intoxicating mousse. You'll find hints of butter and pears in the nose of this sparkling wine; possibly some bitter orange and melon in the dry aftertaste. But if you like it, you'll like it for the bubbles that burst crisply against frosted holiday cookies, or bounce down the hatch with raw oysters and a sprinkling of salt. Found at Cellars of River Ridge, Dorignac's, Martin Wine Cellar, Langenstein's, Prytania Liquor Store, Sav-A-Center, Vieux Carre Wine & Spirits, Wine Seller and most other wine purveyors in the New Orleans area. -- Roahen
