Wines for Hearty Holiday Meals, pt 2

Wine writer Anthony Giglio mentions Champagne Bollinger, Champagne Ayala, Langlois, Ornellaia, Château de Nalys, and E. Guigal on  Food & Wine Club  and in the American Express ‘Connoisseur Club’ Newsletter. The round-up, titled “Wines for Hearty Holiday Meals pt.2,” suggests Champagne Bollinger ‘PN AYC18,’ Champagne Ayala Blanc de Blancs, Langlois Chateau Crémant de Loire Brut, and Juvé + Camps Reserva de la Familia for champagne and sparkling pairings. The story also suggests Ornellaia ‘Poggio alle Gazze dell’Ornellaia’, Domaine de Nalys Châteauneuf-du-Pâpe ‘Saintes Pierres de Nalys’ Blanc, and E. Guigal Condrieu for full-bodied whites, noting “The Sauvignon Blanc- based blend from Ornellaia represents one of the rare great whites from Italy.” For medium-bodied reds, the story suggests Masciarelli ‘Villa Gemma’ Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo Superiore and E. Guigal Côte-Rôtie ‘Brune et Blonde de Guigal’,  noting “they are both gulpable on their own, but also formidable enough to stand up to hearty fare.”
