Baby in a bottle
To honor the launch of our childfree blog, our baby, we had planned to decant another sweet baby, a very special bottle.
Then we thought, why just one bottle? Why not a case or two? This way we can uncork a bottle of the same wine once a year from now on to celebrate the birth of our childfree blog and to see how the wine develops over years of nurturing in our cool basement. Sort of like how parents celebrate the birth of their children annually.
Polished & Firm?
So we did a little research and picked a lovely 2005 Bordeaux. Chateau Citran, to be exact. Now, we like our wines but we don’t have hundreds of bucks to drop for a single bottle. That’s what makes this wine so special. It’s ageable but affordable – how many parents can say that about their kids? 🙂 And, according to one of Amy’s favorite wine writers, Ray Isle, the vintage is “polished and firm” and should have a “long life ahead of it.”
That was the plan. Well, things don’t always go according to plan. More on that in our next Wine-y Baby post. For now, we’re content to simply celebrate that we have things that we take interest in and that give us joy.
