Veuve Clicquot Non-Vintage Champagne, Champagne A.C., France: This classic, well-known Champagne is a traditional blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes. Lime zest, green apple and freshly baked bread aromas on the nose, with a terrific persistence of bubbles on the palate. Try the ultra-shabby chic combo here between French Champagne and a bucket of KFC chicken. Why wait for New Year’s or a wedding before you pop open bubbly when it’s so tasty? The bonus is that it’s just about the best partner for fried food on the planet: it’s mouth-watering acidity and bubbles wash away the fat, making you want more of course. Drink: 2017-2022. 563338 12% D 750 mL  $70.60 Score: 92/100. July 5, 2018 Top Rated Sparkling Wine. Fantastic Fried Chicken Wine Full Review
Cave Spring Cellars Chardonnay Musqué 2014, Beamsville Bench, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada: Very pretty and mouth-watering Niagara Chardonnay Musqué, which is a clone of Chardonnay that is not exactly the same as many Chardonnay clones in that it offers more floral and apricot notes. Perfect for Asian dishes. Drink: 2014-2017. 246579 13% D 750 mL  $16.95 Score: 89/100. September 3, 2016 Best Value White Wine. Sensational Shellfish Wine Full Review
