Les Iles D’or

The only thing I could possibly love more than champagne is a long weekend. Throw in a fourth day and now we are talking! Ash and I decided to step a day ahead (since today is  untechnically Friday) and start celebrating Champagne Wednesday on Tuesday. Then when Wednesday came around, we couldn’t leave it unmarked -so a second CW was observed all in one short week. No wonder I’ve had little time to blog.

I am excited to share with you the deliciously-dewy Australian substance that carried us through: Wolf Blass Yellow Label Sparkling Brut.

Dry, crisp, good length, undertones of apple…all the things one would say about a perfectly ingestible sparkler for $16 dollars (or $14.99 if you can make it to an actual liqour store – we tend to be of the convenient beer-and-wine variety).

The painting above is by Henri Edmond Cross, titles Les Iles D’or. We bought a print of it from the Musee D’orsay and I am hoping to get it framed soon. The only trouble is I can’t decide how to frame it? Any thoughts?  

Enjoy your days of freedom.
