Even though it's usually popped for special occasions, Champagne is a supremely great wine to pair with food, and—particularly great for Thanksgiving—its sparkling style transitions easily among different flavors and textures. Bottles may vary in style, body, and sweetness, but a good, dry Brut goes nicely with almost anything. Typically high in acid and filled with soft bubbles, it can be tart and refreshing, a great palate cleanser between bites. Plus, you won't have to worry about opening a bottle and not finishing it—at least, not if you have a crowd like mine. I'll be topping off everyone's bubbles long before they go flat.
