The Champagne Adventure II

My recent affinity for champagne met me with a light-bulb moment; enjoying champagne goes beyond the drink.  The popping, flute filling, toasting & clicking, smiles & tales sharing…it all tells a story; love is in the air!  

What: A tens of thousand miles trip. 
Who: Three Generations of family.  
Where: Across continental lines.

The champagnes are (clockwise) Louis Roederer Brut Premier, Bonnaire Tradition, Taittinger Brut La Francaise & Freixenet Cordon Negro.  Noteworthy is the Bonnaire Tradition was the least expressive, dry and lacked depth.   

Revel in a “soft pop” to preserve the carbonation.

The Champagne Adventure

I recently got into champagnes; thus far I’ve explored G.H. Mumm Cordon Rouge, Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label, Segura Viudas Reserva Heredad and Cook’s champagne.

I’m not here to give a yeast-driven-citrus-based aromas analysis nor a toasty-character-perfectly paired with foie gras review.

All I have is the Segura Viudas was the least complex i.e. not overly multi-layered, and it was the second least supple - Cook’s was the most supple.  All bottles were rich especially the Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label which takes second place.  I LOVE the Cordon Rouge’s finish but the Segura Viudas Reserva is the definitely the most balanced!

Please remember, DO NOT DRINK & DRIVE!

prayer for you


God our Father,
Your power brings us to birth,
Your providence guides our lives,
and by Your command we return to dust.

Lord, those who die still live in Your presence,
their lives change but do not end.
I pray in hope for all the dead known to You alone.

In company with Christ,
Who died and now lives,
may they rejoice in Your kingdom,
where all our tears are wiped away.
Unite us together again in one family,
to sing Your praise forever and ever.


Title: prayer for you

Inspiration (revisited)

    What inspires is reality
                  The life I live
            The world as it is

       Yes, that's what it is!
