We’re a family that celebrates milestones, and we do it best when we have a great bottle of something special to share together. This bottle of Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut Yellow Label, a gift from my best friend, was just such a bottle–sent to congratulate us for our relocation to North Carolina.
We’ve been here nearly two months now, but with the Veuve on hand decided we would celebrate anew on this Sunday night. Check out the delicious vittles that graced our table: Mustard-encrusted chicken breasts, fresh-cut green beans, and portabella mushrooms. The Veuve, always a favorite of my wife, really accented the succulent food. Its bubbles and inherent apple goodness complemented the flavors Becca wrangled from this light, healthy fare.
These guys have been producing champagne since 1772, so you know they’re doing more than one or two things right. If you’ve had for yourself, you’re nodding in agreement. If you haven’t had Veuve Cliquot yet, what are you waiting for?
