It is May already and with a little warmer weather our palates prefer to savor for fresher, livelier wines that will cool us way better than a glass of a not so cold red. In addition to warmer days and more sunshine, we also have two big celebrations coming up next week, American and Canadian Mother’s Day on May 8th and Mexican Mother’s Day on May 10th. With such celebrations around the corner, I can’t think of a better wine than Champagne. Made popular when barely on the map by Napoleon Bonaparte, Champagne is definitely the de facto bubbly to celebrate with. It is the most elegant and better crafted sparkling wine in the world, and I can’t think of anything less to honor the women who carry a sacred place in all of our hearts.
With that in mind I present to you Nicolas Feuillatte Rosé Champagne, a blend of 60% Pinot Noir, 30% Pinot Meunier and 10% Chardonnay, this wine is unbelievably full of fresh red fruit in the nose. Blueberries, raspberries and cassis come to mind. The palate has a very fine bubble and red fruit all the way, with racy acidity and light brioche undertones. It is one of the most elegant Champagnes on its range and style.
Champagne is a great way to start a celebration let it be a dinner or a party, it always finds a way to please people and stir them to action, whether it is the delight of a dish or the beginning of an interesting conversation. For the food and wine pairing I can’t think of a better match to crispy appetizers, raw oysters, sashimi, fruity salads, lobster (depending on the dish), beef tartar and maybe even chicken! We have at Don Sanchez plenty of dishes that would work beautifully with your glass of bubbly rosé, and the experience to try it with a variety of the dishes mentioned before just seems like a lot of different flavors, paired with a lot of fun.
