I do not profess to be a oenophile. I do enjoy sparking wine, however, I do not have the budget for champagne.

I recently read a positive review of a particular cremant from the Alsace region so I decided to order a few bottles to try it.

I opened the first one this evening and I am ashamed to admit that I have already polished off about 3/4 of the bottle.

I may have to order another case.



  1. It's risky to admit to being an oenophile, or any other kind of -phile for that matter. We've had a nice sauvignon blanc between two of us this evening and I'm having difficulty typing. You seem to be better accustomed to it.

  2. I hope that you finished it? No point leaving a little drop ...it might go off!!

    2. oops, typo...
      I stuck a fizz-saver stopper in the bottle and will finish it off tonight. Slight headache this morning though!


Although I am quite used to talking to myself, any comments on my posts are very welcome, provided they are not abusive. I do reply to them so please check back. It's good to talk (!)
