While at Crate & Barrel to replace a cracked French press, Foodgoat came upon these stemless champagne flutes. Sure, it would have made sense to put them on our wedding registry, but at $1.95 each, why wait?
So today, in order to celebrate Britney's long overdue return to rehab, we broke them in with a bottle of J sparkling wine. And either this bottle of J was different from other batches, or the flute glass actually makes a difference. For one thing, long before the first sip, I noticed that it had a distinct smell. A fruity, flavorful smell. I don't remember noticing the smell when I was drinking sparkling wine out of a coffee mug.
