José has just the wines for everyone’s holiday feast!

José recommends the 2018 ‘Moussamoussettes’ Pet Nat Rosé from Agnes and René Mosse in Anjou and Domaine des Rouges-Queues 2017 Maranges ‘Vigne Blanche’ from the Côte de Beaune of Burgundy.

Moussamoussettes is a happy wine, a wine that makes it easy to drink the whole bottle. A captivating sparkling rosé made from a blend of Grolleau Gris and Gamay, this wine is gently sparkling with framboise, cherry and rhubarb; it is fresh and lively in the mouth, and is perfect for Thanksgiving.
Maranges was formerly a source of blending wine for Côtes du Beaune Village wines. Granted AOC status in 1988, Maranges now produces affordable Burgundy of great character. Domaine des Rouges-Queues is a biodynamic producer that makes honest wines with finesse, transparency, and freshness. The Maranges Vignes Blanches exudes ripe cherry, five spice, earthiness, and a long, mineral finish. Perfect company for the Thanksgiving table.
