“Mirth is the sweet wine of human life. It should be offered sparkling with zestful life.” — Henry Ward Beecher
Flowers are fantastic, roses are divine, but Champagne is the key to the harlot’s affections. A dozen rosés for the Wine Harlot is the annual birthday wish. We are wowed by shiny objects, but what really turns our heads is sparkling – sparkling wines, silly. Diamonds might be a girls’ best friend, but nothing quenches our desire like Champagne.
Champagne Delamotte Brut Rosé (non-vintage) is the perfect pick for any special celebration. The color is an enchanting blush-rose color. The bubbles are pin-point tiny, with a cordon of mousse encircling the glass. The flavors are fresh raspberry and strawberry with an elegant mouthfeel and finish.
My favorite pairing (except for Marilyn Monroe’s classic potato chip recommendation) is Roasted Red Potatoes with Crème Fraiche & Caviar. The music match is “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” by Marilyn Monroe from the soundtrack Some Like It Hot. Here’s to Champagne wishes and caviar dreams.
