Another wine someone brought in. A joy to open. This wine was pretty much muddy. It was far from good, but not quite gone bad. I have no experience with wines of this age. I asked the guest if it was normal. He said, “War, depression, France was a mess. That’s just how the wine was made at the time. It’s eighty years old, you can’t expect much.”
Smoked red bell pepper. Mud-wet gravel. Blue cheese. So much more, changed every fifteen minutes. #BottleoftheNight
