So after hearing me comment that chicken and dumplings was a comfort
food of my youth, Betsy determined to make some. It was truly
delicious, though it bore little resemblence to my childhood Southern
food. Pretty sure Mom didn't use turmeric, shallots, or leeks, and the
dumplings of my youth were gooey bits of dough, not nice crusty
biscuits of flour and cornmeal.

Wine was the 2006 Pinon "Non Dose" Vouvray Brut. Nose of applesauce
and flowers, light petillance, higher acids. On palate there's apples
and Chenin wooliness, pretty decent length. This is a good wine, but I
have to say that I like the dosed versions better. On the plus side,
this is more obviously Chenin, and is quite precise. But the acidity
is a little shrill/austere, and a little softening would be welcome. I
know a lot of folks think that non-dosage bubblies "rule", but while I
tend not to like high dosage a lot, I find wines that are reported as
low-middling doses seem to appeal to me the most. Not bad by any
stretch, I enjoy, but maybe not as much as the other Pinon petillants.

Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent
wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I wouldn't
drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no
promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.

Funny thing, we brought a bottle of the regular Pinon Vouvray Brut to a
dinner Sat. night. Lovely stuff in the typical sparkling Vouvray idiom.
How does the non-dosť compare in price to the regular version?

Couple dollars more than the NV, no drastic difference.

Quite a few posters here have come to dinner.
This wasn't so complicated, she combined recipes from Epicurious (one
from Gourmet, other from "Cookie")
