It’s time to release 2021 and bring in 2022. Stay positive and be happy with the most celebrated of celebration wines, Champagne!!
An exceptional bottle is Pol Roger Brut. This family-owned company has been making luxury champagne since 1849.
At their site they have underground cellars where the wine is aged, and the low temperature of the deeper cellars slows the fermentation, producing finer bubbles. Decanter gives it rave reviews, describing it as “encyclopaedic in its indulgence…the long yeast aging responsible for a happy and altogether luminous marriage of power and finesse…consistently excellent.” I can say with utmost sincerity that this champagne lifts your spirits in all the best ways, too.
Serve with oysters or crab cakes or pate on thin crackers and pretend you’re in Paris.
Ring in 2022 with joy. There’s nothing better than that in my subjective opinion.
Happy New Year!
