Wine Throwdown

We love men who sport a classic look that goes beyond the prep scene we see so often in Boston. Here our handsome gentleman hottie makes use of a rainy day to dress in a style reminiscent of a polo player. Classic and perfectly fitted khaki's tucked effortlessly into his dark Wellies (themselves reminiscent of riding boots). Arms insouciantly folded across his chest. He was a delight to behold, and made us want to open a fine bottle of wine to savor whilst observing him.

Speaking of wine, we notice our fellow renowned blogger BosGuy has discovered French wine! In particular a Clos des Fees Les Sorcieres. And a lovely wine it is, as we've enjoyed it with meals at The Abbey in Brookline and Cambridge. It's best drunk at a temperature of 58F to 60F (stick it in the fridge a half hour before serving).

BosGuy's review here: http://bosguy.com/2014/10/24/le-clos-des-fees-les-sorcieres/

Of course our HOTT Crew just returned from France with two large suitcases filled exclusively with wonderful French wines. Our HOTT Crew's favorite is a Domaine Jamet Cote Rotie 2008 (below in our HOTT Crew's test kitchen)
A juicy feel on the palate with pepper, plum, blackberry and cherry fruit laced with tobacco leaf and green olive notes. A delightful kirsch edge hangs on the finish! Somewhat pricey at $265 per bottle stateside, but we bought a case at the vineyard in France and paid in Euros, so it was as if it was free! Euros aren't real money, are they? If you do see a bottle at a wine shop in Boston don't hesitate to pick up one, two or a dozen bottles!

Anyway, perhaps our HOTT Crew needs to get together with BosGuy and Sergio to have a wine throw down of the best of our cellars!

Il Pleut Comme Vache Qui Pisse

Our HOTT Crew learned some fun French phrases whilst cycling in Provence. Once, during an arduous 7 mile ascent through the Gorges de Venasque to the Col de Murs (a high mountain pass) in torrential rain our DuVine Adventures guide taught us the French equivalent for "raining cats and dogs."

Il pleut comme vache qui pisse!

It's raining like a pissing cow!

And that's exactly what Boston has been experiencing the past 18 hours. Torrential rain. Blasting sheets of rain. Torrents of water everywhere. So when we spotted these washed-out gentlemen aboard our train, in front of a rainy-day advertisement mentioning Paris, no less, we couldn't help but be reminded of that very descriptive French phrase, "Il pleut comme vache qui pisse!"!

He Spoke French


He spoke French, and captured our hearts. And what delicious eyewear! And the jouged sleeves and the cashmere sweater were a wonderful American Traditional touch on such a fine European gentleman.

Magnificent Monday - He Wore a Wedding Ring


And as a friend near and dear to us says, "Not my problem!". It's the first truly crisp autumn day, and what a treat to find a handsome man so magnificently turned out. From the North Face luggage to the designer scarf with European-style stripes to the crisply coiffed hair style with hints of auburn and gray. And have we mentioned his delicious facial hair? Oh he was a fabulous find on this brilliant day!

Flirtation

So many fine men on the T during the Head of the Charles Regatta! And we were lucky to capture this ebullient fellow texting away on his iPhone. As he typed a big dimple-inducing grin would burst forth, and we imagined he was flirting with someone via iMessage. Whoever was on the receiving end of his messages must be a very lucky person!
