Wino Wednesday – We’re Baaaaaaack

24 Aug

That’s right! Our last post had us leaving Paris after an incredible 6 months of adventure.  At the time we weren’t sure when if ever we would make it back, but after a whirlwind spring where we sold our house and car, we are back in the City of Lights, and what better way to re-start the blog than with Wino Wednesday!!!

We’re back in Paris for another 6 months while C finishes her Superior course in Patisserie and does an internship.  While last time we posted daily for the entire 6 months, this time we will only post a few times a week.  Don’t worry we’ll keep everyone’s favourites, Wino Wednesday and Photo Friday.  The other posts will depend on what adventures we get up to that week.  We do have some travel plans as well, but you’ll have to keep tuning in to find out about those…

So, Wino Wednesday, where we buy a bottle of wine each Wednesday, the only criteria being it must cost 5 euros or less (not exactly a difficult feat in France).  While we are not sommeliers, nor do we pretend to be them, we’ll give you our frank impressions of the wine, and we won’t use pretentious terms like “oakey flavour”, or “notes”, or “undertones”…

We decided to start with the bar low. How low?  Well we bought the sparkling Louis Bouillot  Grande Reserve for an astronomical $1.41, not as cheap as our favourite $1.21, but we can’t review the same booze twice now can we?  The sparkling wine comes from Bourgogne, and it was quite good, we’d highly recommend it, especially for $1.41.  Besides, it’s hard to go wrong with Champagne now isn’t it?

    Ohhhhh how I LOVE wino Wednesday….. I should really try to convince D-Rod we should do the same but with a 10 limit. It would make Wednesdays so much more enjoyable. Happy to hear you are settled in Paris 🙂
