68 LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 12.18 THE OVERVIEW The Champagnery 1764 Frankfort Ave. The party: Dylon Jones, web editor Jenny Kiefer, associate writer (who "doesn't like champagne") Mary Chellis Nelson, managing editor Mickie Winters, photographer The meal: Rivière board with crème fraîche and lavender dates, El Trigal Manchego, peach preserves with corriander, Cypress Grove Humboldt Fog goat cheese, apricots, Molinari salame Same Grapes Different Places flight: Vueve Cliquot Yellow Label Champagne (France); Argyle brut (Oregon); Graham Beck (South Africa, or, according to the menu, "It's not too far away from home — they own a horse farm in Kentucky") Old World flight: Henkell brut (Germany); Biutiful Cava rosé (Spain); La Perlina Moscato d'Asti (Italy) "This one is more grape-y. It kind of tastes like Welch's." — MCN "I think it's very gregarious." — DJ "This one is really, really light. Just a hint of sweet. A bit dry, but not like gin-dry. It's very drinkable." — DJ "It's like when I try to drink La Croix — all those flavors taste the same to me." — JK "The Manchego is not really pungent, but it's delicious, which is actually good for me because some cheeses are so strong that I can only have one bite because it's so heavy and funky." — DJ "It's definitely easier to appreciate a good cheese than a good Champagne. If you're not into Champagne, you can't tell the subtle differences." — MCN "This rosemary sitting in oil is giving me so much joy right now." — DJ "The presentation is really nice. Very friendly." — MW "The crème fraîche is so light. It's a good neutralizer." — MCN "Those dates, though. O-M-G." — DJ "What are those buckets for?" — DJ "I think those are for spitting." — JK "Ohhhh, that makes sense." — MCN (Later in conversation) "I think that's for if you get a bottle and want to chill it on ice." — MW "This rosé that's called Biutiful it just falls very — I feel like it goes away really fast. It has a disappearing act." — MW "This is shy. It comes to the party, makes itself known, then dips out." — DJ
