The most famous restaurant in the Big Easy, located in the tony Garden District and the winner of seven James Beard Foundation Awards, has announced the release of Commander’s Palace Cuvée Brut. Produced in partnership with Terres Secrètes and made with grapes from the Mâconnais region of Burgundy, the pinot noir-based sparkling wine displays hints of red berries and light spice-forward notes, with a toasty richness to finish.

Terres Secrètes is one of France’s celebrated cooperative wineries, founded in the early 1950s and supported by dozens of talented family growers in the greater Mâconnais. Commander’s Palace Cuvée Brut is produced using the same ages-old methods and grapes found in Champagne, resulting in a near-identical quality to pinot noir-based champagnes. Suggested pairings include seafood, duck, mushrooms, root vegetables and cheeses such as Manchego, Parmesan and Gruyère.

It is a twelve-time Wine Spectator Grand Award winner and was a finalist for the James Beard Foundation’s Outstanding Wine Program award in 2016.
