So for all 6 of you who read my blog, many apologies for the missed posts over the weekend. This wedding thing really does throw a wrench in the life of a blogger...
Anyhoo... it's Champagne Fever around here! There will be a Champagne bar at the wedding and I plan to feature one on the blog each day for the next 7 days! I know, you can hardly contain yourself!! Me too!!!
So here's the first. It is a Veritas wine, and one that I happen to adore. Leclaire-Gaspard, Blanc de Blancs, NV from Avise. 100% Chardonnay, 100% Grand Cru fruit. The vineyards and winery are family owned and operated (this is a grower Champagne) on just 4 hectares in Avise. It's crisp and clean with lots of creamy citrus fruit. Some light biscuity notes but it's not heavy at all. Refreshing and cheerful!
You can find it at Froma on Melrose, $45, and the Wine House. It's also on the wine list at Jiraffe in Santa Monica, Addison at the Grand del Mar in San Diego and the soon to open Palate Food and Wine in Glendale.
So toast to the beginning of my new life! "Say goodbye to singledom..." (quote by Susan Brink of Venokado) and let's drink Champagne!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
