If you are looking for a small gift idea or fun stocking stuffer (yes, I know it’s still September) then this little bottle from Pommery might do the trick. There’s just enough to go around for two small pours…or one and let the party begin!
My husband bought this as a gift for his grandmother’s 96th birthday last March. We went to visit her last weekend and, with the perfect weather outside, we convinced her that it was an opportune time to open up that bottle. “Delicious,” was exactly how she described it. We agreed with her. The finish wasn’t dry like a Brut. I don’t like it when your entire mouth feels like all the moisture has been sucked out of it. I swear I tasted green apple, but the tasting notes on Pommery’s website don’t mention that at all. In the end, it doesn’t matter. We enjoyed a beautiful afternoon on the patio with one terrific lady. I’m thinking we might have to do this every time we visit.
You can pick up this cute little bottle (187 ml to be exact) at your local wine retailer for about $20. They also make a pink version for $13 at Binny’s.
Cheers my dears!
