Ringing in 2021 with sparkling wines from around the world
Thibaut-Janisson Blanc de Chardonnay NV
Widely considered the father of Virginia sparkling wine, Claude Thibaut is a fifth-generation winemaker from the Champagne region of France. Made from 100% Chardonnay, this sparkling wine is elegant, bursting with white peach, saline, apple butter and hints of hazelnut. It’s zippy with a brioche and baked apple finish. ($30, Westside Produce and Provisions). Also look for Thibaut’s lighter and slightly sweeter FIZZ, perfect for mimosas.
