Why to buy:Six months spent in oak barrels lend this wonderful Blanc de Blancs—from a renowned Champagne family run by a fourth-generation cellar master—a delicacy of taste and texture that make it a fantastic pairing with foods as diverse as oysters on the half shell and brioche bread pudding.
Characteristics: Bouquets of vanilla brioche and buttered bread are followed by a hint of citrus on the palate in this complex, substantial wine. Pair it with date cake or bread pudding, French toast or even a seafood starter; notes of oak also make it a great companion for scallops sautéed in butter.
