Things I Heart, Take 4

Hmm, so many new things how can I ever choose?  Well, the thing that I really heart most today would definitely have to be the 2002 Domaine Huet Vouvray Petillant Brut.  Holy crap that is good!  I had the pleasure of drinking it at one of my favorite BYOBs, Home Bistro in Boystown, last Sunday with great friends.  We opened it at the beginning of the meal and of course I was excited, but after sniffing then tasting, I was even more excited.  Such an amazing sparkling wine.  Beautiful in the glass with a golden color and tiny bubbles.  Aromatic and vibrant on the nose.  Honey and lemon really came out on the palate with a great minerality that I love heart.  It also has a great acidity which is probably why it also went so well at our Fried Chicken and Bubbles event last week.

My suggestion is to grab a bottle of this and drink it.  Sharing is optional.

CHICKS and BUBBLES: The Aftermath

Vintage Champagne and fried chicken are the most perfect pairing…really. We tested it out. For sure. The Champagne was delicious and extra bubbly. The food was plentiful and incredibly hearty. Our little chicks and bubbles picnic was quite lovely. Check out our menu, wine list, and photos below!
