We conclude our Valentine’s Day/Date Movie series with City of Angels. It’s definitely the oddest and most cerebral of this month’s offerings. On the plus side, it does have a bitchin’ soundtrack, with lots of killer 90s vibes.
For vino, we tried the sparkling Vouvray, from Champalou. Vouvray is Chenin Blanc, and this one has all the hallmarks: It has a dry minerality, but with fun, festive notes of lemongrass and dried apples. This one retails for around $30, not exactly cheap, but way more affordable than any legit champagne.
