Let’s face facts: Virtually everything in life has sexual overtones.
Sex has spawned movie ratings (X and R) and music ratings (“Warning: Contains Explicit Lyrics”).
Sex sells products — everything from cars to shaving cream. Remember the commercial in which a blonde bombshell urges a lathered-up Joe Namath to “take it off — take it all off… with Noxema”?
Even fruit can be sexy. One word: banana.
And so it is with wine.
Only with wine, our prurience is pushed to the limit not only by its aphrodisiac alcohol, but also by its alluring color, its sensual mouthfeel, and its occasionally suggestive labels.
What’s a healthy, vibrant, active person to do?
Only one thing: Give in to temptation. Uncork that bottle and let yourself go.
Our list of “The Top 10 Sexy Wines of All-Time” should help.
There’s no need to thank us.
It’s our pleasure.
So, slip into something more comfortable, and let the countdown begin…
The Top 10 Sexy Wines of All-Time
No. 10 — Moet & Chandon
In a world populated by Dom Perignon and Krug, I never gave much thought to the Champagnes of Moet & Chandon.
I’d sip a glass when it was offered at a party, but I never sought it out. There was plenty of other bubbly in the world to tickle my fancy (and nose).
And then, earlier this year, everything changed.
Moet & Chandon made news by announcing that actress Scarlett Johansson had been signed to be “the face” of the “Champagne of Cinema.”
Only the pictures of Ms. Johansson weren’t just about her undeniably beautiful face.
One picture shows off her legs, and depicts her holding a Champagne flute between her toes.
Another has her grasping the neck of a Moet & Chandon bottle as fizz sprays out.
In a press release announcing Ms. Johansson’s signing, she is quoted as saying: “Moet and the movies tell compelling stories and share authentic emotions with the world. I am honored to have been chosen as their ambassador and to make history with the brand, as the first celebrity face of Champagne!”
Drinking Moet & Chandon will never be the same.
