This week we put a bid down on what could have been our dream house. It was enormous, in excellent condition, near great schools and near many of our new friends. It was also in foreclosure and on the market for 565 days. We figured there was no rush. When we got around to submitting an offer yesterday, we we literally a day late and (a few thousand) dollars short. Someone submitted an offer a few hours before ours even though our realtor called the day before to tell them an offer was on the way. Oh well, another missed opportunity for the Wilsons. It will now be someone else’s dream house.
Now, when it comes to dream wines, they are a bit easier to come by, although they may sometimes cost as much as a mortgage payment. I have a dream wine. Well, it’s a champagne actually. Perrier-Juoet Fleur de Champagne. Even the name of this champagne is spectacular. I’ve never tasted it before, but the bottle sure is pretty. In fact, the lovely anemones that are painted on the bottle were first created by Emile Galle in 1902.
Have you had this champagne? Is it worth the investment? I mean, I’d keep the bottle.
Or do you have a dream wine of your own?
