Entre Ciel & Terre Champagne
Francoise and her son Vincent farm only a few small acres and vinify tiny quantities of premium champagne in the western Marne valley. The grapes are harvested by hand and the champagne ages for several years in the cellar. 65% Meunier , 25% Pinot Noir, 10% Chardonnay. $80 range.
This is a lovely pairing champagne with seafood, creamy pasta or salmon. Notes of lemon, toasted brioche, ripe apple and a touch of ginger. The Meunier grape stands out from the first sip.
Available at Mr. Bill’s Wine Cellar, Roanoke, Virginia. http://mrbillswinecellar.com/
Lovely pineapple mint that I transplanted from my Mother’s garden. I’ve always loved the “pineappley” aroma of this mint. I remember marveling to my Mom that there was always one sprig of this mint that was perfectly white in her garden. Now the same is true in my garden. That one little white sprig always brings back fond memories of my Mom and her love of herb gardening that she passed along to me. Truly a blessing.
