rolled to the tasting with Laurence Fishburne, because he is a big Champagne guy who also has these badass sunglasses, and he was all like "If one bottle fails, they all fail. All of our lives, we have fought this war. Today I believe we can end it." And I was like, I dig it L-Dog, tell me more! So he says "Today is not an accident. There are no accidents. We have not come here by chance." And I said, Damn Straight, badass glasses man, we had a taxi and some good directions. But then he goes: "I do not believe in chance. When I see 12 bottles, 12 tasters, 12 glasses, I do not see coincidence. I see Providence. I see Purpose. I believe it is our fate to be here. It is our Destiny. I believe this day holds for each and every one of us, the Very Meaning of our Lives."
"Vouette & Sorbee Saignee de Sorbee?" And I say, do you already know if I am going to like this enough to rank it as my favorite of the tasting? And she's all nonchalant, and says "Wouldn't be much of an Oracle if I didn't," with this big Whatever shrug. But I want the answer, so I'm like, If you already know, how can I make a choice? She isn't having any of that, though, and shoots back "Because you didn't come here to make a choice about whether you love Vouette & Sorbee. You've already made it. I read your blog. You're here to try to understand why you made that decision." So I drink some Saignee de Sorbee, and she shows me that she is not to be played with. "I thought you'd have figured that out by now," she says.
I was looking at a World without Time.
I had to choose.
I named the Saignee de Sorbee as my favorite wine of the tasting.
