Paul Cheneau Brut Blanc de Blancs

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”  —  Lao Tzu

This was a delicious bottle of cava.  It’s had a fruity, yeasty flavor, with a slightly metallic finish.  The perfect pairing would be Oysters Rockefeller.

The details: 12% alcohol.  The sparkler is made in the méthode traditional with a  blend of macebeo, xarel-lo and parellada grapes from the Pendés region in Spain.  The suggested retail is $17 USD.  The importer is Pasternak Wine Imports.  This was a media sample generously provided by Pasternak.

The music match is “The Weakness in Me” by the phenomenal Joan Armatrading from the album Walk Under Ladders.  Whether you are feeling strong or weak, cowardly or couragous, open a bottle of bubbles and consider your options.  It worked for Winston Churchill, and I think Lao Tzu would approve.
