Champagne Marie de Moy Brut Rose to Start a Progressive Dinner Party

 The French Winophiles are celebrating December and the holidays with sparkling wines.  I decided to pour Marie de Moy Rose Champagne for my Progressive Dinner Pary to kick off the merriment.  What a great glass to start our party.

I think it is important to note that Champagne Rose is produced by either blending different wines or by bleeding red grapes into champagne. Both methods create a deep-colored champagne.  Rose Champagnes can be more expensive than white Champagnes because production is lower.  The tasting notes for this Champagne were lively, with fine bubbles starting off with notes of strawberry and finishing with peach.  The mouthfeel was scrumptious and everyone at the gathering loved it.

Our home was the first stop and we served a variety of starters that all seemed to pair well with this Champagne.  We had a beautiful charcuterie board with typical cheeses and meats, roasted red pepper and artichoke tapenade, goat cheese stuffed peppadews, and Israeli bruschetta charred tomatoes. Our guests added stuffed mushrooms, brie and cranberry tarts, and a pastry Christmas tree filled with a creamy spinach dip.  After catching up and telling stories, it was time to head to house number two.

At this home, we had a variety of soups, breads, and desserts to round out our party. We kept the meal small and I am glad we did, as I got to try all the soups and most of the desserts. This group of friends has been meeting as a supper club for many years, and we joined them six years ago.  We go to a different restaurant each month and those who can make it decide on the next month's culinary adventure. We have tried many delicious restaurants of many cuisines. 

Let's see how everyone else celebrated December with a French sparkling wine!
