laissez le bons temps rouler... impossible to capture or describe the beauty of last night’s wonderful birthday celebration hosted and curated by the honoree Earl and @sfhannah in such an elegant vieux carré setting. so many lovely wines... the two stunning 1959 bordeaux flights and gorgeous 1959 yquem showed their legendary reputation and immortal youth- indeed a fitting description for this esteemed gentleman, whose incredible generosity and kindness are equally matched by his endless joie de vivre. an unforgettable evening of amazing cuisine, breathtaking wines and great fun shared with new and old friends... santé #suelement1959 #secondline #chevalblanc #magnum #latour #lafiterothschild #moutonrothschild #leovillelascases #gaja #yquem #bordeaux #burgundy #yquem #champagne #happybirthdayEarl

private morning preview of #krug2006 with @robertoloppi_luxbibere a ‘capricious indulgence’ indeed- the warmth of the 06 vintage reflected in lithe balance, elegance, perfume of hyacinth and brioche, delicate notes of orange blossom, so open and inviting now, such vibrant freshness. tasted alongside the 06 base 162eme grande cuvée revealing even more nuanced harmony... both exquisitely paired with almond croissant while listening to the piano composition commissioned for the 06 release... every day should begin with #krug #champagne a beautiful experience thank you so much @ldreyf @bubblesbish13 @krugoli

an intimate dinner among friends hosted by @krugchampagne - overture was 162eme Krug out of magnum, drinking beautifully, paired with an impeccable selection of charcuterie and cheeses. then to dinner, the elegant atmosphere and chill vibe setting the tone for the sublime opening notes of the 04 Clos du Mesnil. i love this champagne: a masterpiece that will age beautifully, but also stunning now as i have always found the intense, linear clarity and acidity of young CdM incredibly seductive. such an inspired pairing of the vibrant intensity, purity and depth of the CdM playing off the delicate, crisp freshness of the carta di musica verdure and the rich, savory decadence of focaccia di recco. having indulged in several bottles of 04 CdM since release, i can attest to its archetypal structure and beauty- along with the epic 02, definitely one to acquire for collections. variation on a theme, 04 Krug is a classic, so well-balanced with many years ahead yet such a pleasure to drink now. 03 from magnum an intriguing interlude- beautiful, yes, but perhaps upstaged by its peers in this context. interested to see how this one continues to evolve over time. 22eme Krug rosé- a voluptuous, intense, striking edition with beautiful complexity, spice and red fruit that complements any cuisine, an exotic foil to magnificent roast pork and smoky, wood-fired vegetables accented by piquant sweet peppers. finale 167eme Krug- a ray of light- so fresh, energetic, all lemon zest with hints of tropical fruit alongside an airy meringue with shaved ice dusted by flower blossoms- together, a taste of the luminous last glow of summer. a few of us lingered until midnight sharing another beautiful bottle of 04 Krug, flawlessly paired with the incomparable tarta de queso dessert. a truly wonderful evening of gorgeous champagne, exquisite food, great friends, music and conversation- thank you so very much @robertoloppi_luxbibere @ldreyf @bubblesbish13 @yrmom_safoodie @felipericcio @junerodil @cshumphries @krugoli @montrosecheesewine @rosiecannonball #krugjourney #closdumesnil #krugvintage #krugXpepper #krug #champagne #wednesday alwayssayyes @pdhall75

after the rain, always the sun... tonight a stunning 06 cristal rosé immaculately paired with a late summer menu composed of sungold tomato bread, melon with fresh herbs and preserved citrus, butter beans and carolina gold rice, warm peaches in beurre noisette with greens, smoked beef tartare, braised rabbit farfalle, and the sound of arcade fire as the sunset slowly illuminated the skyline... for all its flaws, this crazy city can be such a magical, beautiful place #houstonthemovie #myworld #cristalrose #champagne #cristalchampagne #absolutedecadence #exquisitetaste #endlesssummer #alwayssayyes @pdhall75
