Yummy bubbly!

It being my ‘sweet sixteen’ times two birthday (that’s how my brother eloquently called turning 32 earlier today), Mathias has now left me on my own in the garden with a glass of champagne while he’s cooking away in the kitchen. He presented the champagne blind (that is in a glass without me seeing the bottle) and it being amazingly smooth and rich, I opted for a vintage champagne with some age to it. Ended up being Waitrose’s own label 2002 vintage champagne, of which I actually have 6 bottles maturing in my ‘under the stairs cupboard’, and it’s just drinking so well at the moment. Rich, creamy and soft with some delicious citrus notes and a lingering finish – way to easy to drink…
