On my 21st birthday this year I was really spoilt! Amongst my fabulous presents, including these stunning Thomas Sabo starfish earrings…
…and this wonderful (hand- made!) book- bag…
…were three bottles of bubbly!
So, after a long day shopping and eating lunch up London with my mum, we popped open one that I had put in to chill that morning (it’s a hard life!)
With three bottles to choose from, it literally was a case of Ip Dip Doo, and the winner was…. this bottle of André Carpentier…
It was so beautifully wrapped by my cousins that I felt a tiny bit guilty breaking into it, but it was well worth the fun (almost as good as popping bubble wrap), and I have kept the pretty pink ribbon somewhere safe amongst all my birthday cards.
A blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir grapes, this French champagne was lovely and golden in colour, and gave a very satisfying pop when opened (I didn’t spill a drop thank you very much).
With gentle fizzy flavours of ripe melon and honey, and a deliciously dry finish, this bottle went down excellently with the Port Salut cheese I was eating at the time.
It really was the perfect end to a perfect birthday- thanks everyone!
Now I just need an excuse to crack open the other two bottles… one Italian Prosecco (always a winner) and one rather posh looking bottle of Nicolas Feuillate Champagne- hurry up graduation!
