Happy New Year!

Happy 2012, friends and followers.  I hope your holidays were joyful.  For me, the month of December was filled with parties, great friends, family, and loads of good food and wine.  I am going to have to clean up my act for at least a month! 

On Christmas Eve, my brother, sister-in-law, and I started the evening with a bottle of Chartogne-Taillet Brut Rosé that was sublime. The wine is a beautiful salmon colored rosé, quite dry with luscious fruit.  Then, on New Year’s Eve, my dear friend, Chip, and I popped a bottle of René Geoffroy Rosé de Saignée Brut that was even more incredible. It is 100% Pinot Noir and a gorgeous raspberry color.  After chilling it, we found it was best when it warmed up just slightly in the glass in order to take full advantage of the amazing aromas and flavors.  The Chartogne-Taillet is in the $55 range and the Geoffroy is about $70.00.

To a wonderful 2012!
