Drinking local at the White House dinner

Thibaut-Janisson is an up-and-coming specialist in fine sparkling wine. Winemaker Claude Thibaut is convinced that Virginia has the climate and terroir to produce excellent bubbly – and evidently the White House agrees.

“Here’s more evidence Virginia can produce top-notch fizz,” I wrote about this wine last year in my Thanksgiving recommendations in the Post. “Elegant and stylish, with palate-refreshing acidity and subtle fruit that emerges about an hour after opening.”

Local Gifts for the Beer, Wine and Cocktail Lovers

by Meredith Coe

Done in a crémant style, [Fizz is] less bubbly than some of the other TJ wines – a gentle fizz, hence the name. Its notes of peach and apple and smooth, creamy texture make it a mirthful (and affordable) way to say “I celebrate you” this holiday season.

Bubbly surprises

by Panos Kakaviatos

The initial nose, when first tasted, made me think ‘this is Blanc de Blancs Champagne’ because it was so clean and smooth and appealing like Blanc de Blancs can be.
