Bubbly: It’s been chilling for some weeks in the refrigerator, and tonight it called my name. A two-glass bottle of Billecart Salmon Brut Rose (Highly recommended! Half-bottles about $35 – full bottles $65-70). Delicately peach in color, dry with a hint of strawberries and a lovely fine bead. Funny about champagne – even if it’s good, I can’t manage to down more than half a glass. But when it’s wonderful like Billy Rose, all bets are off. (I restrained myself and saved half the bottle for tomorrow night.) Ignited tons of candles in the bathroom and lounged in almond bubbles while I consumed it. Bliss.
