Wine of the Week


Champagne, the world's favorite celebratory beverage, tops the list for toasts at seasonal social occasions. A blend of 55 percent Pinot Noir, 30 percent Pinot Meunier, and 15 percent Chardonnay, Piper shows a lively, elegant character, harmonious balance and excellent structure. Floral, citrus, mineral and toasty aromas follow through on the palate. Good with hors d'oeuvres, seafood, light meats and cheeses. Available at most Sav-A-Centers, Cork & Bottle, Whole Foods Market (Esplanade Avenue), Robert's Fresh Market (Robert E. Lee), Fortissimo, Antonio's Wine Cellar, Albertson's (Metairie and Marrero), Breaux Mart (Gretna and Algiers), Winn-Dixie (Tchoupitoulas Street and in Mandeville), Louisiana Star in Covington and Hugh's Wine Cellar in Mandeville.
