Drink of the Week: Jacques Lassaigne Blanc de Blancs “Les Vignes de Montgueux” Brut NV

Thanksgiving is less than a week away, marking the unofficial start to the holiday entertaining season. And what better way to kick off your celebrations than with today’s Drink of the Week—“Les Vignes de Montgueux” blanc de blancs from Jacques Lassaigne. This bubbly is a festive blend of bright lemon zest, zippy minerality and a touch of brioche on the finish. Hailing from a small family farm in the southernmost region of Champagne, it’s one of the best Champagnes we’ve tasted in its price range—just the cork to pop whether you’re shopping for turkey toasts, hostess gifts or new year’s bubbly.
