We want Champagne tonight. Yet we also want hearty winter food. French fries work well with France’s famed bubbly. But what of Canada’s gift to heart surgeons: Poutine?
Both come from cold climates, right? This could work!
Luckily the Moët provides refreshing acid to keep that beast in the bowl from owning my palate. The autolytics of this particular Brut match the earthy mushroom gravy well. It is far from perfect, but a pleasant change.
