Ruinart Blanc de Blancs

Sparkling Wine of the Week- Ruinart Champagne Blanc de Blancs

If you read this often then you know that I am very partial to the non-vintage Ruinart Champagne Blanc de Blancs. It is now the splurge offering by the glass at Liberty Kitchen & Oysterette in the Uptown area of Houston. I've enjoyed it at the bar with the Chesapeake crab balls a few times while waiting for a table. As it is offered by the bottle as well, my husband and I enjoy sharing it with the raw oysters, the sushi of the day, the tuna poke and the whole lobster as well. 


Always recommended, this crisp, mineral-driven sparkling is a favorite with Liberty's fresh seafood menu.

Dry with a medium body, medium alcohol and medium acidity with a fresh cherry flavor. It worked well with our dinner of soft chicken tacos with tomatillo salsa. Whole Foods has it for $13.99. 2010 Cantele Primitivo - Aromas of black plum, dark cherry and licorice. Dry with a medium body, medium alcohol, medium tannins and medium acidity with flavors to match the aromas and a slightly spicy, long finish. Very smooth and drinkable. I served it with barbequed and smoked pulled pork sandwiches and it was delicious. Available at Spec's for about $15. 2009 Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva - Ripe blackberry and black cherry aromas. Dry with a medium body, medium alcohol, medium tannins and medium acidity with flavors to match the a
