|"You're wearing an ascot. You look like an asshole."|
My mother and I once translated "Unchained Melody" into French. I enjoy singing that into my husband's face at weddings.
But I digress. Arrogant Frog. What a name! And a picture of a frog in a smoking jacket and ascot! What more could a pseudo-Francophile ask for? The best part was that my brother forgot his Christmas present at our house, so we drank it! And I liked it so much, I bought another bottle, and I'm drinking it as I write.
And no, I still haven't given them their own bottle. I know my lovely sister-in-law will read this and see the wine she has yet to drink. (She'll also know that I spent a whopping $10.99 on their Christmas present. Joyeux Noel! Je t'adore!)
Mais, mon Dieu! This is good stuff--screwcap and all. Fruity with a strong finish. Tannic. The label on the back suggests serving it with "grilled meat, rack of lamb, pot roast, poultry, game, or soft cheese." In case you're wondering, it also pairs well with white cheddar crackers. (Yeah, I didn't cook tonight.)
Perhaps I should buy une bouteille pour mon frère. Santé, y'all!
