It’s been a really long time since my last post. I’ve done so many things and drank some great wine, but alas, I found no time to write. Today will be my last post of the summer, for tomorrow, Fall is here. Where did it go? It feels like just yesterday I was getting ready to #RoséAllDay and sit out by our new pool! It’s like I blinked and lickety-split, it’s cold again.
Not that I don’t love the fall, it’s just that summer is so vibrant and warm. To be fair, it was an incredible summer. I slurped and spit at my first official wine tasting, went on a Rosé yacht cruise in NYC, had beach days galore, participated in fashion week, “ran” in a wine marathon, and drank so many good wines. I really can’t complain.
Speaking of fashion week. It was epic. The Rosé was divine, the food was delightful, Younger Sissy and I met some new friends, and we saw a legit New York Fashion Week fashion show. I may have heckled the models after two hours of Rosé drinking, but it was only to tell them how beautiful they looked…that’s ok right? For a few brief moments I thought about changing career paths…but 3 large slices of pizza and a pair of $3 flip flops later, reality set in and I returned to Lawyer Life. An adventure to be sure. Thanks again to Nuit Rose for inviting me!
Onto the last wine of the summer!

Wine: 2014 Bougrier Vouvray
This is actually a wine I opened on Saturday. When I opened it, it was light, fresh, and perfect for a bit of pre-gaming before we went to an event. I remember notes of orange on the nose. That being said, I was leery about how it would be today. It held up surprisingly well. On the sweeter side with a hint of minerality on the finish. Green grass on the nose, and a tinge of peach when I swirl. A perfect wine to sit and sip as we wave adieu to summer 2015. Until next year!
This is another Bougrier Famille wine, and, like the last one I had, this also took a bit of wine label deciphering. It appears that Bougrier Famille partnered with Domaine Toussaint, another producer in France’s Loire Valley to release this white wine. The bottle gives no indication of what varietals were used, noting only that it is “white Loire wine,” but other information I found through The Goo
gle says it’s 100% chenin blanc. A fair value at about $15 a bottle.
 It’s actually my favorite season. #foliage
 I think I mistook their pouting faces, oh so skinny limbs and hollowed cheeks as a cry for help, or at least a cry for a cheeseburger. In reality, strutting down that runway with no bra and no smile was probably their dream come true. #success
 I’m pretty sure I had the walk down pat.
 Thinking that since I was going to fashion week, I would have to dress the part, I wore high heels. To New York City. Where I would have to walk around. For extended periods of time. Big Mistake.
 It was well sealed in the fridge.
 Loire Valley is officially on my Wine Bucket List.
 Another discovery I made this summer. Excellent grape!
