Ice wine...

...IS better than shoes!! If some days ago the term was mentioned to me, I would only imagine wine with ice in it... or very chilled... Certainly did not know any details about this nectar!! Well, what it is is wine that is made of grapes that when they are picked, they are already frozen in the vine! Pretty risky business, pretty hard labour too, as the grapes must be picked up usually during one night while they have just started to freeze but, ahhhh, what a taste!!!

I had the great pleasure of dinning in fabulous small restaurant a few days ago where I tasted this magnificent type of wine... and it came at the end of a meal that is going to stay in my memory for a very long time... Everything was perfect: the ambiance, the company, the service, the food and the wine! A creative, imaginative and brave chef, very young as it turned out to my surprise, and a sommelier who knew his wines very well,  made the experience unforgettable. Delicate tastes, accompanied very nicely by the wines, and the culmination which came with the dessert and the ice wine... a light chocolate cake served with saffron (!) sorbet and perfected by the ice wine... sweet, fruity, refreshing and special... mmmm... orgasmic!!

I will never forget those tastes combined... never have I experienced such match made in heaven when I comes to taste though I have been privileged enough to have dinned in fine restaurants, some even with starry credentials... But this, this was simply amazing! And it all combined with the best company and the greatest of moods in order to produce a night to remember!! The best one out in quite some time! And all this was definitely better than shoes, better than Lanvin's already classic ballerinas, better than Chloe's new sandals...and I could go on and on and on...
