Champagne de Venoge Blanc de Noirs

Top 10 Father's Day Wines 2010

Champagne de Venoge Blanc de Noirs, one of our Top 10 Father's Day Wines

SPARKLING

Champagne de Venoge Blanc de Noirs
Champagne, France

This red grape-varietal blend of 80 percent Pinot Noir and 20 percent Pinot Meunier is surprisingly full-bodied. Its bouquet hints at its lasting flavor, and the clean and balanced taste reflects the relatively small number of crus selected for the blend. A harmony between freshness and powerful body makes this Champagne a match for sophisticated fare such as lobster salad with truffles, foie gras or roasted duck breast.
