“Champagne is the only wine that leaves a woman beautiful after drinking it.”
– Madame de Pompadour
What better way to spoil yourself, or a special Mom in your life, on Mother’s Day than Champagne? In honor of this very special holiday, The Glamorous Gourmet is giving away a fabulous bottle of Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé Champagne to one very lucky winner – a $90 value!
In the 1960’s, making a non-vintage rosé Champagne was virtually unthinkable but Bernard de Nonancort, the charismatic Chairman and CEO of Laurent-Perrier, was just the man to make it happen. Laurent-Perrier’s Cuvée Rosé was launched in 1968 in an elegant bottle inspired by those made in the time of French King Henri IV. This gorgeous sparkler is a lovely, salmon pink hue with seductive aromas of fresh red berries, minerals, and smoke. The palate is lively and layered with notes of strawberry, black currant, gingerbread, and a hint of anise followed by a delightfully lengthy finish. While perfectly delicious on its own, the Cuvée Rosé also pairs beautifully with a variety of dishes including foie gras with red currants, roasted chicken with mushrooms, beef tenderloin – or whatever your heart desires!

While our everyday wines are the vinous equivalent of a cozy blanket or comfy pair of slippers we slip into at the end of the day, at the other end of the spectrum are wines that are more akin to haute couture – think Chanel, Gucci or Dior. These “haute” wines are so meticulously-made, terroir-driven and exquisite, they imprint themselves… Read More
Key to learning about wine, sweet wines in particular, is a little term called Residual Sugar which is our Wine Word of the Week. While there are many factors that ultimately determine the perception of sweetness in wine, residual sugar is the actual amount of sugar left in a wine after the alcoholic fermentation – which can end in a… Read More

Ahhhh the bounty of late Summer! When I see all the beautiful produce at the Farmer’s Market, it REEEALLY makes me want to do this. The ripe, multicolored heirloom tomatoes seem to long for a drizzle of grassy green olive oil and generous sprinkle of crunchy Maldon sea salt, while the fragrant, downy peaches are begging to be bitten into,… Read More
If you’re anything like me, the word “clone” immediately conjures a host of 1970’s B-movies featuring body-copying aliens who seek to wreak havoc on the human race. When it comes to grapes, however, that source of many 70’s childhood nightmares couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, a GRAPE clone is actually a very good thing! While most plants… Read More

Years later, we STILL can’t seem to get enough, and our desire shows no signs of waning anytime soon. But the truth is, rosé… Read More
