    April 29, 2016 - Dinner w/ The Wine Group (Antipasto at our place; Dinner at Gloo Bistro): Over 50 years in the bottle, and after only 1/2 hour of slow-ox, this beautiful wine came out as smooooooth as silk. It showed an incredible balance of ripe red fruits, acid and tannin. The fill was below shoulder, but the cork was original, and the finish was quite long. Nothing to gain by holding any longer, so drink up and enjoy!! Up against Cheval Blanc 1982; Margaux 1990; & Guigal La Mouline 1997. My and group #1 - WOTN.

    October 24, 2015 - This was a fabulous bottle of '64 Cheval Blanc. Too bad it wasn't all '64 Cheval. The pristine label and mid neck level were strong hints that this bottle was re-corked, but there was no indication of such on the label, front or back. The cork was moist and firm and came out easily. In tiny letters was "rebouche 1996." No way to tell if the recorking was done at the chateau or with what wine. The color was bright mahogany. Very frustrating, but whatever was done was highly successful since the bouquet of kitchen spice was beautiful and the wine was well balanced with great texture and perfectly ripe sweet fruit. Based on color and taste, I might have guessed it was 25 - 35 years old.

    October 3, 2015 - Wow - again. Sadly the last bottle. Amazing wine that had people guessing Bdx ffrom between 90-01. Young and vibrant in other words.
