Hi Cutie Winos & Smokers! And Happy Brand New & Quite Beautiful Week!
So I'm going through a lovely little Crémant phase right now, (pronounced CRAY-MAWN), and that did prompt me to start a thread about the bubbly which everyone prefers.
First off, here's just a little capture of my dinner today (simple grilled camel burgers with more of those "ZOODLES" or "zucchini noodles" that are shredded in that "Vegetti" apparatus. (I warmed the noodles on the grill today however and that was grand)!
And camel is the only meat (other than llama) that I adore GROUND! Normally I can't stand ground meat, and prefer a steak. But camel is lovely!
OK, first those, and then the libation discussion...Enjoy!
SO DELICIOUS! 3 minutes a side and I had my crispy seared edges and raw middle that I just crave so very much! Amazing!
OK so on bubbles, I enjoy some very dry Champagne from time to time, (but in Champagne lingo, "DRY" means sweet, and "BRUT" means dry, and so I enjoy Brut Champagnes sometimes and from Reims - pronounced Rahntz - versus Epernay, as the Epernay Champagnes can be a little sweeter to me, a bit fizzy, and more like Ginger Ale - yes even "Dom!"
As for Spanish "Cava," both Rosé and regular, I will drink it if offered, though am never 'wowed.' Somehow there is something missing, and it's as if I had a carbonated water and yet with flavor added.
Prosecco does not appease me at all, and almost always is too sweet or chewy or large bubbled or just not my bag.
But then Crémant, (a lighter style sparkling from France) does turn me on, particularly when finding a dry one!
I recently discovered a decent Crémant at Trader Joe's (which I just had with my camel and it was fantastic even) but I am tracking down a dryer one from Alsace, France that I do love, and will happily share more about that when it arrives, if anyone wishes.
Meanwhile, what serves you well as bubbles?
Everyone has different taste - which keeps it exciting - and there is nothing better or worse or right or wrong - as wine is just 100% subject and don't let any snooty sommelier tell you differently! Ever!
BUT DO SHARE what bubbly stuff you like, as it is fun to share and have everyone chirp in!
Meanwhile, "Game On For Crémant" over here! And for camel as well! Smiles.
Happy new and magnificent week!!!!!!!
