Champagne Tasting And A Coca Cola?!

Coke bottle

Forget the V8! I bet this guy wished he had champagne!  This sculpture is on display at MoMA (Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art), NYC.  Titled Love  by Marisol Escobar, Venezuelan, born in France 1930.  Plaster and glass (Coca-Cola bottle).

A couple of sparklers to get this weekend started…

1995 de Venoge Champagne Brut Louis XV

Presented in a beautiful crystal bottle. Bright with green apple, hazelnut and brioche notes. Tiny consistent bubbles in the glass.  De Venoge produced this champagne in honor of King Louis XV, who first decreed the bottling of Champagne in the region to preserve the bubbles (prior to this time wine was transported in wood barrels which resulted in flat champagne since most all of the gas would escape through the wood). Wine Enthusiast rated this champagne 92 points.

2005 Dom Perignon Brut, Champagne

Toasty, balanced and silky with a creamy mousse and a long intense finish. Beautiful tiny bubbles dancing in the flute.  Wine Enthusiast rated this champagne 95 points.

bubbles and brunch

Happy Weekend! Don’t forget the Mimosas and the Buck Fizzes!

Mimosa = equal parts champagne and orange juice

Buck Fizz = two parts champagne and one part orange juice
