This is a young sommelier's adventure through wine, liquor and the world. You will find no ratings here. You will find somethings that are sometimes geeky, sometimes irreverent, and always presented in my own unique (and dyslexic) way. Hopefully, the content inspires exploration, a sense of adventure, a good icebreaker for conversation, and even a good sense of humor about the magical juice we call wine, the insane elixirs of ting the world of liquor, and the culture surrounding all of it. .

More bubbles, because every day is a celebration
This time, it is the Jacquesson n. 734, an organic growers champagne that is delicious. Again yeasty qualities, but with a busty richness. Blend is 54% chard, 26% Pinot meunier and 20% pinot noir. A great wine....and for those of you playing along at home, yes that is the cork next to the bottle, which has been sabered. Why you ask? Because knocking the top off a bottle of champagne off with a knife is just super fun and makes for a good keepsake! Plus, you look pretty cool doing it!
