Yesterday was a great stage. We spotted my niece standing by the road. She is working on an archaeological site and the tour came right by them.
We tasted a Crematte de Limoux side my side with a Blanquette de Limoux and the Crematte won fair and square. The Blanquette got dumped over the free range chicken and cooked. I would like to do the same with the "Pistolero".
Free-Range Chicken with Champagne (from The French Vineyard Table, page 38)
That had to be a thrill.
We are tracking the exploits of close friends who are touring and pre-riding the stages. I’m carefully reviewing VS Tour Tracker to spot them as we read of their exploits on FB. Betsy and I have 5 year goal to be there doing same…sampling what you’re cooking btw...
I know…and it’s moving past its once novel entertainment for me. Sure it’s tempting to engage...however unfair. I’ll spot another 25 years worth of experience then bump this for a fair discord
