If I should drink champagne”, is usually never a question. It’s when and how often I can convince others — especially my husband — to drink champagne, so I am not polishing off the entire bottle solo. In the spirit of full disclosure, that has happened more often than not.
I’ve been involved in a girl’s wine club for at least 15 years and somehow I have positioned myself as the host of my favorite wine night of the year. The rules are simple — bring one bottle of champagne, and champagne only. The price range is over $25 and I always waver between two bottles — the Pierre Peters and the Billecart-Salmon as my choice.
My husband is always kind enough to cook a rocking dinner for us. Actually the dates are now selected based on his availability as his food is much better than any caterer I have ever used. And, no one wants to eat any meal that I’ve prepared.
This was the line-up and I have to admit that I didn’t capture all of the bottles of the attendees. Is 15 plus bottles for 12 people a bad thing? It was an awesome way to roll out 2015 in a celebratory way with great friends.
