Wine & stuff – Happy Freakin’ New Year!

Pol Roger NV Extra Cuvée de RéserveMmmmm…. seriously, the best thing about New Years is the Champagne. I have nothing against ‘Sparkling wine’, but c’mon Champagne is the REAL thing. It’s the Disneyland of booze – it’s the happiest drink on Earth.

Tonight, I had a great one: the current release of the Pol Roger NV Extra Cuvée de Réserve. So good… strong pear and honey with a bit of a toasty edge, and a finish that lasts for a minute or more. To quote my buddy, Mr. Watkin, it’s “a good drop”. Yum. Wine Enthusiast picked it as their #4 wine of the year. Pretty fantastic for $49 (CDN).

For 2006 remember – “Once a day, every day give yourself a treat.” This is a good start.

All the best to you in the coming year. Cheers.
