Did you guys know I have a candle addiction I’ve had one since I was in middle school. I grew up with my mom buying Bath and Body Works candles every season and it made our home feel so cozy. Burning candles takes me back to those memories and gives me a warm cozy feeling like nothing else.
I’m going to start posting more candle reviews here because it’s something I’m really passionate about and I LOVE taking about. •••
Here we have Wine Cellar from Bath and Body Works. This is a returning scent that was once called Smoked Berries and Incense. It just came out for the first fall floor set.
I have this burning in Camden’s nursery today but also had it in our bedroom the other night. It is a beautiful, dark, sultry berry scent. Something about this is so sensual and sophisticated, while also being extremely earthy and grounding. I think it is the perfect scent to transition from late summer into early fall. ❤️ The only problem I have with this candle is the throw. It’s a 5/10 for me. It also started to get puny wicks so I had to cotton ball it. Hoping the burn improves on it!
Perfect wine to moose leftovers from Sunday dinner. Baigorri is a really great modern Rioja winery. This bottle is a 2007 that I have kept for approx. 7 years. Perfect mature with very powerful palette and a perfect match with the moose. #winecellar #baigorri #vintage2007 #rioja #greatwine #moose
During the prohibition, grape juice mix was sold with the warning “After dissolving the brick in a gallon of water, do not place the liquid in a jug away in the cupboard for twenty days, because then it would turn into wine.” 🍷🍇✨ #winefacts #winery #boneappletea

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2017 from 🇮🇹 winemaker Emidio Pepe. @emidiopepe
Bottle no. 1592 (limited production)
Still young but it was anyway an experience!
Emidio Pepe is a warrantor for quality wine. His name is big, not only in Abruzzo, because of his long experience in real bio-winemaking. Even in the most difficult years they don't add any chemical "means" to make or store wine. In general his philosophy is super interesting, trying to extract the best attributes from wines like Montepulciano d'Abruzzo or Trebbiano, as well as keeping their youth elements at the same time. And this you can really taste it!
Color: Dark ruby red with violet reflexes, opaque core.
Nose: amarena very strong, red fruit from the wood, stable and leather, secondary notes of soil and champignon.
Palate: It has round but noticable tannins, a well integrated and lively acidity, red fruit, especially raspberry or sourcherry.
They use cement tanks to age their wines, that means no roasted or toasty notes are present on the palate. This one stays more or less 2 years in those. So it was a fresh release...
14% vol. of alcohol bring a semi long finish.
No sulfites added!
Restaurant + food pairing follows in the next post...

Another one from Saturday night. Some 🇫🇷🇫🇷 friends hangin’ in an ice bath.
⭐ The very best way to handwash the bamboo shelving in the Grotto is with very hot water and distilled white vinegar (3:1 ratio).
⭐ This is a tried and true method for cleaning cheese cave shelving, and it lets you start with a clean slate when you switch the cheese stored in the Grotto.

L'Extravagant de Doisy Daene 2010
Produite entre seulement 3 et 6 barriques, cette bouteille ne se trouvait qu'en 37,5cl. Notée 95-97/100 par Robert Parker et 97/100 par Wine Spectator elle se révèle être une perle rare des vins de Sauternes dépassant Château Yquem de la même année (93/100 par RP). It is produced only between 3 and 6 barrels. Before 2010 it was only half-bottles!
Noted 95-97/100 by Robert Parker and 97/100 by Wine Spectator, this Sauternes is a rare gem surpassing Château Yquem which note is 93/100 by RP.
