AFTER DINNER WINES

Happy New Year!


"Come quickly! I am drinking the stars!"

SHE Says: Happy New Year to you, our wine friends!   I trust you can feel the change in the air.  2009 was a heavy year and 2010 feels lighter already.    You’ve already had your New Year’s champagne no doubt, so I will just share a champagne story with you.

At least two friends have shared they received 1993 Dom Perignon as a gift, and had stored it away, waiting for a special occasion.  One was stored in “perfect” conditions and another stored in imperfect conditions and you guessed it, both turned on them.   Special occasions are indeed special and you want a special drink for them, but Ai, yai, yai!  It’s SUNDAY!  That’s special enough for me!

If you have a special champagne and you want to wait for a special occasion to drink it, you can wait — but don’t wait too long.   With the best of temperature controlled storage, although Dom Perignon was a Benedictine monk, his eternal spirit can get impatient waiting for you to figure out that every day can be a special day!   Look at the belly on that guy. He was drinking way more than you.

If you need justification to open that bottle, just send me an email info@barrysentials.com and I”ll help you come up with any number of excellent reasons to open that bottle for any day of the year. Deal?  Deal.

HE Says: Ditto
