Champagne & More, John Turi - Wine

Louis Roederer Cristal, Champagne, 2005

Wine Rating: 95

Every night with dinner, I drink an average of two glasses of red wine. This is done for a variety of reasons, but the two primary reasons are these: First, red wine is healthy for the body (I read that in Cosmo). Second, in an effort to continually enhance my knowledge and appreciation and to expand my palate and experience, I must always be sampling various wines, and there is no shortage of options. The array of choices is vast. So with any luck, I’ll be at this awhile. And because my wife, Shawn-Marie, deems these reasons to be completely valid, along with championing my desire to consistently heighten my wisdom, I get to enjoy my vino at the price tag of collecting, with no questions asked.
