It has been a great day hanging out with my love & best friend for Valentines Day. If I could give anyone young enough advise on selecting partner, marry your best friend you love. Greater degree of happiness & success. ❤️😍😘🥰

Happy Valentines Days everyone. Hope you are with the wine & one you love the most.

The White Burgundy was excellent but, still have to have my BSR 375ml. It’s been awhile for us.

It is a little better tonight following the Burgundy & soft white cheese.

The nose on this bottle really flows out of the glass tonight. Beautiful lean fruits of; blackberries, black cherries, cherries, strawberries, watermelon near the rind, blood orange, orange & tangerine & some pomegranate. Crisp volcanic minerals, saline, sea fossils, baguette crust, vanillin, whiff of caramel, soft white spice, pink flowers and rose pedals.

Everything on the palate sings just a little louder tonight as well. Fruits are even a little richer than normal. Ripe & slightly gummy not as normal leaner fruits of; blackberries, black cherries, cherries, strawberries, watermelon near the rind, blood orange, orange & tangerine & some pomegranate. Crisp and grippy, volcanic minerals, beautiful softer, powdery chalkiness w/o quite the sharper edge it normally has, soft, hints of Provence herbs, saline, sea fossils, baguette crust, vanillin, whiff of caramel, soft white spice, pink flowers and rose pedals. The acidity is crisp, lively and dead on as alway. The long, rich, well balanced finish is deliciously refreshing and persists minutes.

Finally a night or weekend we weren’t working on our rental, rushing to get some Christmas shopping done or getting ready to entertain holiday guests. It’s a night for us to chill out. That’s a good thing. It is also our final night to enjoy all our Christmas candlelights before we pack up tomorrow. 😔

We didn’t even enjoy any of one our very favorite N/V Rosé Champagnes over the holidays.

Tastes really good tonight. Showing shades of carbonated Dreamsicle or Creamsicle. However, you remember them growing up. Rich, ripe, candied & lean; black cherries, strawberries, cherries and summertime leaner watermelon. Baguette, grey volcanics, sea spray and finely powdered, razor sharp chalkiness with candied, pink rose pedals. Perfect, crisp, lively acidity and long, rich, well polished & balanced finish with persistence.

Hope you all have had a great start to 2020!

A pretty yeasty nose with cherry, then bread. Delicate and medium. Good acidity and lovely structure.

It has been a whirlwind for three months but, things are starting to slow and the full force of our favorite season is taking hold. So enjoyable that means Champange. Ahh...I’m only kidding myself, it’s always a good time for champagne.

Tonight the BSR is throwing a lot of peach & tangerine along with lean fruits of; black cherries, strawberries, watermelon & cherries. And...always the razor sharp, grippy, powdery, deep penetrating chalkiness. Perfect, lively, acidity and nicely polished, balanced finish.

Merry Christmas & Happy Hanukkah!!! 🍾🥂🎁⛄️❄️🎄🎅 ⭐️

Simply having a wonderful Christmas time back at home with a glass of one of our very favorite N/V Champagnes. Ahhh!

Happy Holiday Season all! Cheers! 🍾🥂 🌲 🎅 🎁 ❄️ ⛄️

It’s Friday night, time for Champagne. It’s been a number of weeks since we had one of our very favorite N/V Rosé Champange’s.

One of the last nights in the D&S Lounge before we close it up for the season. It’s getting into the 50’s at night with fog hovering. But, it’s 75-77 degrees inside our propane fray. Rainy season is coming as well. 😞

Plate & Bottle dinner tomorrow night. 😋

Have great weekend everyone! Cheers! 🍾🥂

Feet up and game on In the lounge. Time to kick it off with some BSR. Ahhhh!

Showing some leaner & more restrained fruits of; strawberries, watermelon near the rind, cherries, orange citrus-blood orange, tangerine, pink grapefruit with a splash of sugar and black cherries. Still showing their signature, soft, powdery, chalkiness with an edge of a razor. Seashell fossil, sea spray-saline, baguette crust, pink roses and florals. The acidy is always crisp and dead on for my palate. The long, rich, well balanced, polished finish persists nicely.

Must be Friday. BSR night. We earned it tonight.

We were celebrating the whole IOS 13 update week long Delectable disaster recovery but, there are still some issues. It’s a real challenge to move that score bar. However, it’s not the disaster it was last weekend and most of this week.

All my many previous notes apply. Although, it does taste a little better after four miles on the treadmill and hours of landscape maintenance.

Photos of, the backend of the House of Billecart, one of their Grand Cru vineyards, and our chill spot in the D & S Lounge.

Cheers and happy weekend. Hope you enjoy some nice bottles this weekend. 🍾 🥂
