Re: What gin for French 75s?

i think it depends on which champagne or other sparkler you're using. but plymouth is widely available, very smooth and rounded (more on the elegant side) and lower abv which would work with this i think.

Re: Rush Creek Reserve!

another fantastic wheel last night. i roasted it for a few minutes with thyme and white truffle trimmings. served with a 2015 antoine jobard aligote was perfect. Is this cheese a match for white truffles? I just got both today but hadn’t intended on combining them? pretty funny as i did this again ...

had the 2017 recently and served it blind to someone whose palate i respect and he's actually a great blind taster - came off as a very european styled and classic northern rhone syrah. the color was dark, but in line with what i've seen with 2015s from st jo and cote-rotie. i loved it.
