The baked brie with jam is the easiest holiday appetizer, yet very yummy!

The complexity of Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Viognier, Roussane blended together can perfectly counterbalance the fatness of the cheese and the sweetness of the jam: how about Colline Blanc, Cotes-du-Rhone from Domaine la Cabotte ?

Marie-Pierre and Eric Plumet started taking care of the 10 hectares in the 80's, to reach now 30 hectares.

Since the beginning, the estate is farmed organically and biodynamically, to the point that Eric is now a teacher for producers who wish to begin a more natural approach.

The sandy soils of the plateau of the Massif d’Uchaux, where they are located, are very poor in nutrients, producing wines of real finesse and elegance, which you can find in Colline!

Discreet, elegant nose, expressing complex, subtle aromas, of pear blossom, white peach, apricot and nutmeg : rich on the palate, unctuous and taut, expressing a beautiful minerality, very long and airy finish, perfect with a Brie !

We can not celebrate Thanksgiving without its famous dish : roasted turkey ! And for this traditional dish, we offer the option of pairing it with two wines— a white and a red—tailored to individual tastes, from the Jean-Philippe Guillot in Beaujolais.

Jean-Philippe works with his wife Corinne : they are both coming from a family winery, making them the 5 generation of winemakers.

With 35 ha, the estate is located near the town (and Cru!) Fleurie.

Beaujolais Blanc from Jean-Philippe is 100% Chardonnay on a sandy soil, facing the Juliénas Cru : it has not been aged in oak barrels and it urprises with its lightness and finesse, revealing aromas of white-fleshed fruit and sometimes white flowers (acacia). Full-bodied with a pleasant finish, the wine's crispness complements the rich and savory flavors of roasted turkey,

Morgon “Cotes du Py” comes from a particular terroir made up of decomposed rocks and friable schists : it is the most famous plot in this Beaujolais Cru ! This 100% Gamay came from three plots of very old vines, aged for 15 months in tanks. Its aromas reveal discreet notes of blackcurrant, blackberry and red fruit on the nose. fleshy and concentrated on the palate, with a soft finish. The light, enveloping tannins counterbalance the turkey's roasted aromas!

Both wines will be ideal companions to elevate your holiday meal!


Here’s another savory option that we can pair with Champagne : stuffed butternut squash! The Champagne's effervescence can cut through the richness of the stuffing and the sweetness of the butternut, creating a harmonious balance.

Champagne Gounel-Lassalle is a 4th generation family winery, located in Chigny-les-Roses 1er Cru. With only 3 hectares, certified organic and biodynamic, Arnaud Gounel (who started vinifying in 2018) focuses on the typicity of the terroir.

The entire range is 0 dosage and quite complex : 5 Champagnes are single vineyards, with a clear difference between each of them!

We will focus on Esprit Voyageur, the flagship of the estate : 58% Pinot Meunier, 25% Pinot Noir, and 17% Chardonnay, with no oak! Only the purity of the grapes. Delicate notes, apple and pear aromas, fresh attack, persistent finish : absolutely amazing wine to finish a feast like that!

And why not keeping a Champagne for dessert ? Pumpkin pie is probably the ultimate dessert to have a successful Thanksgiving. The finesse of the bubbles and the acidity of the wine can perfectly counterbalance the fatness of the pie and the sweetness of the pumpkin.

Another Champagne from Gounel-Lassalle would pair nicely. This time, the cuvée Les Noues, single vineyard of Pinot Meunier old vines on silt. Aged in oak barrels and stirred 3 times. This more opulent and more aromatic (quince, tangerine, red fruits and spices) champagne, balanced with a high acidity and a great tension, will be the perfect companion for the pumpkin pie !
