ARG! The wine! Don’t sweat it. Bauer Wines, located on the Mass Ave end of Newbury Street has you covered! Check out their tasty suggested Thanksgiving wine pairings.
BOLLINGER SPECIAL CUVEE BRUT CHAMPAGNE $74.99
There is no better way to kick off the Thanksgiving holiday than with a choice bottle of Champagne. It breaks the ice and makes all of your relatives interesting! For our bubbles Thanksgiving Wine Pairings- The Bollinger is undoubtedly the best non-vintage Brut on the market today and is readily available, which is a bonus for this year. The Special Cuvee comes from older reserve wines and is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay, and 15% Pinot Meunier. Complex and rich, with hints of marzipan, fennel, baked apple, and fresh bread dough. Full-flavored and prominently featured at Hames Bond’s dinner table!
2016 ST. INNOCENT SHEA VINEYARD PINOT NOIR (WILLAMETTE VALLEY, OREGON) $59.99
We feel this is the ideal red wine for the Thanksgiving meal and many other meals that call out for smooth and savory Pinot Noir. Shea Vineyard is the most prestigious vineyard site in Willamette Valley, and Mark Vlossak from St. Innocent has a long-standing relationship with Dick Shea to get his choice blocks of Pinot. Five years of bottle age serves it well, as all the components have mingled together in perfect harmony. Red cherries, mushrooms, forest floor spices, and a hint of Burgundy in the nose. The perfect Pinot to stand up to your Bird, Ham, and flavorful side dishes.
2020 DARIOUSH VIOGNIER (NAPA VALLEY, CALIFORNIA) $59.99
Thanksgiving is not the time to serve oaky Chardonnays or herbaceous Sauvignon Blancs. Instead, the meal calls for some fruit in the glass, and we think the Viognier grape fills the bill perfectly. From the sweet smell of honeysuckle and white peach in the nose to the rich palate of stone fruit and minerals, this is the ideal mate for turkey, stuffing, the demon cranberry sauce, and green beans. It also makes an excellent aperitif as well to get the day going on a nice note.
