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. 🍾 🥂

The NV Billecart-Salmon Rose Champagne is a gorgeous effort and ranks there with the best non-vintage Rose fizz at this price point. A compelling blend of Chardonnay (40%), and Pinot Noir (30%) with the remainder Pinot Meunier, this wine sat one the lees for 36 months prior to disgorgement in February 2018. The delicate and eye-catching pink hue entices alongside the bright red fruits, orange zest and earthy undertones that all collect momentum in the glass. Fresh and lively, with a silky mousse, the wine slowly unveils ripe guava, wild strawberry, peat moss and red cherry candy flavors that longer long on the palate. This outstanding Champagne is glorious now and will provide drinking enjoyment for the next decade. Drink 2019-2029- 92

Wild strawberry, raspberry, herbal blend, and crisp smooth finish. Very good.

Just like the African Bush, don’t come to the Egyptian Desert without it.

Celebrating the ending of a great trip on the eve of our last day at The Old Cataract on the Nile River with one of our very favorite N/V Rosé Champange’s.

Photos of; the pano view of the Nile River from our terrace, Sofia holding our other 375ml bottle BSR we brought from the US, the lobby of the Old Cataract and the grounds of the Old Cataract Hotel.

9.3 on the Billecart-Salmon Rosé and a 9.9 on our trip!

Are you decorated and ready for holiday guests? We are! Wishing you all a Happy Holiday season. ☃️🦌🎄🎁🎅🤶❄️ Cheers! 🥂

This bottle so good tonight almost a 9.4.

@Paul Treadway Huntington Beacher Bum A shout out & thanks to Paul for finding this on sale and sending it my way so I could stock up. Seeing as Jeff Bezos wouldn’t do the normal Whole Foods Wine sale in mid November. I guess short on cash this Q4? 🤷‍♂️
