Our very bubbly, very special friends shared a bottle of vintage 1992 Moët & Chandon Dom Pérignon champagne with us.  A super special treat and a fabulous surprise!  45% pinot noir, 15% pinot meunier, 40% chardonnay grapes this champagne is everything one would expect from a fine wine and more! Richard Juhlin rates this champagne with 91 points.  The price point is $215.

This is one time I wish I had a bottomless glass! This bubbly is superb. Buttery, toasty, smooth, perfect little bubbles. Thank you sweet bubbly friends!

franciacorta

The next evening we tasted Franciacorta Barone Pizzini Nature for the very first time.  Italy’s best-kept secret from the Lombardy region of northern Italy.  Franciacorta Barone Pizzini Nature is made with the methodo classico,  just like champagne and cava has a second fermentation in the bottle which results in fine consistent bubbles in the glass. 70% chardonnay and 30% pinot nero grapes. 2012 singular vintage. $43 range.

Lots of lemon notes. A bit of grassy notes on the finish not unpleasant. We paired this sparkling with an avocado salad and it was delicious!

oatcakes

My bubbly sister-in-law introduced me to these FABULOUS oatcakes.  Oh my goodness!  They are delicious with soft spreadable cheese such as Saint Angel triple-creme cheese or spreadable Brie.  Make sure the cheese is very spreadable because the oatcakes are delicate. Top the cheese with a big of fig chutney or your favorite preserves.  Enjoy with a glass of bubbly or a cup of hot tea.
