I am the first to admit that I usually don’t notice details. One night I asked my wife about the new lamps on our bedside tables only to find out that they had been there for 2 months! I also confess that I put my wife’s hair appointments in my iPhone calendar so that I “notice” that her hair looks nice.
So little wonder last week that I stood with a quizzical stare at a wine bottle in the France section of the LCBO. One of my favourites looked like they had either lost a little weight or gotten taller – or both.
Cellier des Dauphins has finally abandoned the old squatty brandy shaped bottle for a classic sleek Côtes du Rhône bottle. I guess I’m a little disappointed – I liked the unique shape. However, maybe more people will buy the “normal” look and hey, this is a great wine
