Francoise Chauvenet NV Brut

Alright, so it’s high time I included a bubby in my blog.  Especially in time for the wine sale TOMORROW where you can snag this delicious little guy for $9!!  Yes, per bottle!  Plus, as an added bonus, this bottle is French, which means it LOOKS expensive.  Oh, you didn’t know that?  Everything that’s French looks expensive, it’s a widely accepted rule.  That means it’s the perfect bottle to serve at a party for some friends.  You could even learn to say it properly- “Franswaz Show-ven-ay.”  Just picture all the people you can impress.  Or, if you’re like me, you can sit in bed and drink it out of a cheap wine glass from World Market, in your sweatpants, while you download songs on iTunes, and put off cleaning the house- impressing no one.  But that is the great thing about inexpensive wine- you can open it for yourself and not feel obligated to do anything special at all!


See?  There it is, on my nightstand next to the cheap wine glass.  Moving on, let’s get some descriptors going for this little guy: it’s a nice pale yellow in color, smells light and fresh and fruity.  Has a bit of honey, straw, some toast… it has a nice delicacy that I love in a bubbly.  Goes down soooo easily, so easy to drink!  I got so distracted writing this that I burned my dinner.  I wasn’t planning on going out tonight, but it looks like little Francoise here has forced me to… funny how Champagne can do that, isn’t it?

Well, I don’t feel the need to be overly verbose when it comes to this wine- it’s fantastic, and it’s $9.  What else do you need to know?  And if you’re not convinced, come down to Cellar on Greene tomorrow between 12 and 2 and taste for yourself!  Plus- you can pick up some OPALA Vinho Verde and Atteca Grenache, too!  They’ll be there!  Hope to see everyone then!
