I just loved my recently reporter H. Billiot Brut Rosé and would love to have it again, but it just goes against my grain to have the same $50 wine twice in a month. I'll have to try something else, and if I can find a good one at a reasonable price, it will mostly likely be a Pinot-heavy grower Champagne.

Go Bills! I can't stand those possers! The Ravens are just about as bad as the Cowboys, but not quite. Any city that complains about having a football team stolen from it and then takes the same dishonorable action is pathetic in my book. The Ravens, Pah!

I think I'll be having a bottle of Bruno Paillard Nec Plus Ultra 1990 and a Michel Turgy.


Happy New Year!
