Reunion




Saw my friends for the first time in what seems like ages. Ate so much food, I surprise myself. Drank some fantatic wines, thank goodness for the cognac, or else I'd be puking from indigestion.

Started off with NV Champagne Jacquart, Brut Mosaique. Fine mousse, great minerality on the nose, high acidity on the palate, bitter lemon zest finish. Wonderful, simple Champagne, maybe not with the depth to go well with heavier foods, but perfect with a light first course. What can be more sensual than drinking Champagne? Pop, fizz, drink, all to excess.
