Virginia Wine on State Dinner Menu
To accompany the menu served at Tuesday’s state dinner in honor of French President Francoise Hollande, the White House selected Blanc de Chardonnay ($30) a sparkling wine made by Charlottesville’s winemaker Claude Thibault . The TJ, as its fans call it, is making its third White House appearance (and its second at a state dinner), and can lay claim to helping Virginia emerge on the national stage as a premier wine producing region.
Blanc de Chardonnay is made of 100% Chardonnay and has vibrant aromas of pear and ripe apples. The taste is perfectly balanced, crisp and refreshing.
