Please join this weekly meme. Grab a copy of the photo above and link back to An Accidental Blog. Share with the rest of us your passion for France. Did you read a good book set in France? See a movie? Take a photo in France? Have an adventure? Eat a fabulous meal or even just a pastry? Or if you're in France now, go ahead and lord it over the rest of us. We can take it.
Maybe we can all satisfy our yearnings for France, until we get there again
When you go to France what do you make sure you bring home? My list is always long, but a true necessity is wine. Our friend Michel usually takes Earl to the wine store to buy six bottles. We each stash three in our suitcases.
We have the hardest time knowing when to drink that special wine though. Sunday we decided to open a bottle to celebrate our anniversary. Earl is afraid some of it is getting too old. I don't know much about wine, but apparently some wines age well and others don't.
We picked a bottle to open, a 2004 Chateau du Breuil. When we brought it up from the basement, it looked like this.
We put it in the refrigerator to chill. When we opened it, we could smell the strength of it. We forget how much stronger French wine is than the mostly sweet wines, nearly kool aid, we've been drinking here.
We sliced up some peaches to go with our dessert wine and it tasted marvelous.
What do you bring home from France?
Thanks for playing along today, and if you get a chance check out a review of my book on France Book Tours at Caffeinated Life on Monday. I hope she likes it.
