😊Trifecta of Perfection😊 @NatPope
If you are anything like me, oftentimes one bottle will not suffice, especially when you're entertaining. For a complete wine and culinary experience that will impress anyone, here are my three favs that are also my top picks to be enjoyed on their own.
To start, always Champagne! The Daubanton Brut can be singularly enjoyed as a celebratory beverage or to start any meal as it pairs with hors-d'oeuvres of all types. From rich and fried appetizers to succulent, fresh seafood, this style is so versatile with loads of richness and freshness.
Secondly, Chardonnay... Not everyone is a fan, but not everyone has tried excellent Chardonnay. If you are a Chardonnay fan but maybe your guest is not, I always recommend going for a bottle of Chablis. Village level Chablis, like our Garnier et Fils, has no new oak but full malo, so it has texture and weight on the palate and tons of acidity and minerality that ensures it will be a great companion to food and perhaps your fussy guest. So whether you just love a cool glass of Chardonnay or a fresh and mineral white, this wine is for you.
Lastly, to finish the evening or the meal, a beautifully balanced red with some age is my go-to. Our 2015 Ad Astra is showing great development for a 7-year young Bordeaux. It's highly complex, earthy, mineral, has lovely fruit and smooth tannins. I am more than happy to drink this gem on its own but it is also the perfect pairing for grilled or braised beef and lamb.
