Taste: Spirits: What to Drink

WITH: Summer sausages from Talula’s Table in Kennett Square.

DRINK: Artful cold sausages in flavors like brandied duck and curried lamb cry out for a picnic and a friendly, lightweight French wine. The Georges DuBoeuf Morgon "Jean Descombes" beaujolais ($15.99) delivers far more red cherry and warm spice flavor than your basic beaujolais.

WITH: The Cypriot offerings at BYOB Kanella at 10th and Spruce.

DRINK: Lively, fragrant Greek Boutari Moschofilero ($13.99) has it all — loads of flavor and zesty refreshment. Its citrusy backbone makes it a perfect grace note for grilled fresh fish, while its white peach and lavender aromas can handle richer fare.

Griggstown chicken potpies from Headhouse Farmers’ Market in Society Hill.

A plump, juicy chardonnay is all that’s missing for a fast and easy meal fit for a king. California’s Rodney Strong Vineyards Chalk Hill chardonnay ($19.99) is chock-full of golden goodness, with flavors like buttered sweet corn and baked apples.
