Dom Perignon

Jennifer E brought a bottle of Dom Perignon champagne to my condo on New Year's Eve. It was the first Dom experience for all of us, and it was great. The bottle came with a rather lengthy written explanation of the taste of this particular 1998 vintage. Ruben carefully read this explanation out loud, noting particularly that we were to expect a feeling of "weightlessness" soon after the first sip. So it was with joyful anticipation that we watched Jennifer E uncork the bottle and carefully divide it into six equal parts. I made sure to hold onto the kitchen counter when I took my first sip, lest the weightlessness overtake me. Believe it or not, there was a sensation of weightlessness, followed by warmth and bliss. It was fun to be able to share the Dom experience with John, Jennifer E, Ruben, Mark, and Michelle. I love that Jennifer E said that she was saving the bottle for a special occasion, but then figured that this was as special of an occasion as any. Thanks, Jen, for sharing this special treat with us and for making the night a special occasion. You're the best!
