I want to end my Thanksgiving wine recommendations with a Champagne that I recently tried. I picked it up at the suggestion of a very helpful clerk at a local wine store was thoroughly impressed. I think it’s a perfect bottle for a Thanksgiving splurge.
Bollinger NV Brut Special Cuvee is a non-vintage Champagne from Champagne, France. It is a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier and retails for $50.
Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine
Bollinger Brut Special Cuvee pours a sparkling golden-yellow in the glass. The nose has smokey notes of apple and citrus. This rich Champagne has tastes of toasted nuts, ginger, and apple with hints of spice. A beautiful Champagne with fresh acidity and layers of intense flavor. The perfect way to start a Thanksgiving Feast!
My Wine Rating- A-/A
Food Pairing Suggestions- This Champagne is the perfect aperitif for a Thanksgiving meal and is extremely food friendly so it could be sipped throughout the night.
