Escape the mundane

On a wintry Saturday when the view outside is bathed in London bleak grey (a distant cousin of the bright azure “Klein Blue”), there is nothing left but to inject some spring into the step and drive away the SAD.



Rule 1: Open a bottle of sparkling rosé wine. In this instance it is a bottle of the fab Champagne Taittinger Prestige Rosé, available across the country from many wine retailers.

Rule 2: Say “chin chin” with your other half whilst just out of the shower and let the effects sink in whilst getting dressed for the afternoon.

Rule 3: Dress smarter than you originally intended too. After all, the trajectory of the day just changed!

Rule 4: Eat!

Poached eggs on homemade toasted bread with butter, parsley, sea salt and cracked pepper.

Refill, say “chin chin” and enjoy a sip before indulging in the best brunch life can offer.

Tasting notes: Champagne Taittinger Prestige Rosé

This bright pink bubbly is a renowned drink for having fun / celebrating or simply just musing on the narrow collision with ennui that we all are sometimes subject to.

Fresh zesty nose, obvious raspberries, hints of strawberry even.

As the wine sparkles, raspberries coat the palate, add to that a good acidity to clean the palate for the next bite of food. We’ve added no sauces to the eggs to avoid a taste catastrophe with the wine.

It’s fun, slightly decadent (though how you proceed from here is totally to your own taste), and absolutely delicious all the way round!

Exhibition(ist): Dalai Lama at the Wellcome Collection Euston

On this occasion, headed out to the Wellcome Collection’s exhibition titled, ‘Body, Mind and Meditation in Tantric Buddhism’.

Amusingly the Dalai Lama’s of yesteryear were not impartial to the joys of wine and a certain amount of playfulness. In which case, this exhibition make the perfect pairing for a bottle of Taittinger rosé.
