The Best

I was lucky enough to buy a case of the '90 as futures. It is so close to perfection that is is almost impossible to keep my hands off of it. By an excersise of extreme self control, there ate still 7 bottles left. If you can find it do not hesitate.


If you can find a bottle not "plonk", it is THE Best wine I hav EVER had...and that includes the 1982 Chateau Margaux as well, which was absolutely wonderful. I bought 2 bottles of this vintage off the INet and both were "plonk" when I opened them. After my clinical depression *grin* (and my refund) and much lamenting to friends/family, I was lucky enough to find another bottle as a private purchase from a local store that was closing. I didn't wait...this time I popped it right away, and it was Glorious! I did not even decant it just let it 'breathe' for maybe 20 minutes...then poured...it was almost an astral experience for me. Normally, I will open a bottle and drink a glass, pouring maybe one for hubby as well..but this went down so fast...much of it *gone* before the second round of steaks were done...(first we had beef porterhouses, then I was making some lamb chops as well). I couldn't keep my lips off it. I feel so very lucky to hav had some of the wines I hav drunk, but this one truly, without a doubt, with no question what-so-ever, tops them ALL. (To date, that is). Bravo! BRAVO! ~CAPRI
