For the moment, anyway. I’m notoriously fickle.
I love this little gem. Light, crisp, refreshing. Flavors of pear and apple. Great on its own, lovely with seafood. And instead of a cork, it has the cutest little glass stopper. No corkscrew needed. There might be a couple of bottles left at the wine store. I promise, I didn’t buy them all. Even though the Pontiff thought I should. Local price: $16.99. Almost certainly less if you aren’t in Utah.
And as long as we’re on the subject of wines, I’d like to say that I’ve never been a Champagne drinker. I never cared for the flavor (whether sweet or dry), and it always gave me a headache. People always told me that it was because I was drinking cheap Champagne. So thanks to a recommendation by local friend AlarmingFemale, I recently tried some Veuve Clicquot And it’s true – I think I’m hooked. I even bought some champagne glasses today.
Another wine I was never big on in the past was Chardonnay. But thanks to a local wine class, I’ve learned that what I don’t like are the typical oaked California Chardonnays. But give me some old-world, unoaked Chards, and I’m a happy girl. Some of my go-to selections are Louis Latour (French), Foxglove (California), and Alois Lageder (Italy).
