Happy New Year everyone!
Sorry it’s been a while since I wrote last, had my head firmly wedged where I’d prefer it not to be sorting out crap logistics companies. 4 weeks of utter shit nearly over and I can get back to writing!! Woohoo!!
The team at The Buyer asked me to write a little bit about my memories of 2017; so here they are, starting with January.
These aren’t always the best wines I tried, but definitely the most memorable each month…enjoy!
JANUARY: Perrier Jouët’s La Belle Epoque 2008
“January’s always a bit of a slow start to the year for the booze trade, but one memorable tasting was up the Gherkin (steady on!) in London with Perrier Jouët’s Belle Epoque Cellar Master, Herve Deschamps.
I’m a grumpy northern bumpkin that hates spending money, but when you try this level of quality you can’t help but take the price tag with a pinch of salt. Every list worth its gravy needs a top Champagne on it, and the available vintages of Belle Epoque would fit the bill nicely.”
