Waking to overcast skies on Sunday morning, the fall colors seemed less vibrant and a touch softer. Light classical music was turned on for easy listening pleasure. Eggs Benedict (sans the ham), dark roasted coffee made in a French press and the Sunday NY Times were all I needed to put a smile on my face. The only thing that was missing was a Bloody Mary or Mimosa. As I write this post, I’m thinking that this just might be a perfect day to continue my indulgence and stay snuggled in.
Last evening was another indulgence. Dining at a friend’s home, I sipped on Lanson Noble Cuvée Brut Rosé. I must admit that I had not heard of this particular champagne prior to my tasting it last evening. It was pale pink, with delightful bubbles dancing in the glass. Aromas of roses and berries were at the forefront and continued onto the palate with layers of cherry, citrus and dried fruit. The blend is 62% Chardonnay and 38% Pinot Noir. I will have to explore more of their champagnes! www.lanson.com
Have a happy and peaceful Sunday!
