A Trendy Drink Bubbles Up in France

August 28, 1987|RUTH REICHL

Everything's pretty peachy in the south of France right now. I found on a recent visit peaches are popping up everywhere. Peaches perfume the air in all the grocery stores, prettify the plate on which your duck is presented, peer over the edge of every fruit basket. Grab a glass of Champagne and you suddenly discover that even your glass smells of peaches.

The trendy new drink showing up everywhere is Brut de Peche--a peach libation far better than Bellinis. Made with sparkling wine and real peach juice, Brut de Peche comes bottled like Champagne. It's wonderful stuff, and I predict it will take about five minutes before somebody starts bringing it into the States.
