Krug Grande Cuvee Brut Champagne

There is one thing that my birthday celebrations are never complete without, Krug. I’m almost certain if I went my entire birthday without consuming some form of my favorite bubbly the world would actually stop spinning in an anti-grav/time stopping sequence of events that even the Doctor himself would have a hard time landing his…
