This is the kind of thing that gives me an aneurism. I have had similar experiences with the GWB. Maddening.
Wish I could find more of this.
2002 Mongeard-Mugneret Les Orveax, lovely.
One of my local shops outright gave me a bottle of 1971 Beausejour Pomerol. This should have been terrible but it was actually quite decent. Over the hill, definitely, but not spoiled and plenty of interesting tertiary. Completely crystal clear and not even that bricky. Slewfoot is right, Bordeaux is indestructible.
Many wines last night, won't describe them all. Memorable was a 1999 Tondonia white Rioja. This is the one that gomey chickened out on at Narcissa because he thought it would be oxy. Well, it wasn't. Fantastic wine, you pussy. Then three '95s: Cos, Latour and La Mission Haut Brion. First ever LMHB for me despite many Haut Brions over the years. All bottles were flawless and showing well. I would put the Cos in 3rd place despite the fact that I brought it. But it...
I think the AC there is bad or non-existent, we should send Booth.

Big dinner last night. Did 3 TFL recipes I've not done before, the white corn agnolotti, the halibut with cippolinis and the Duck roulade. All were good but I was quite proud of the duck. That was very tasty and very beautiful.
Everything was excellent. Smoked trout may have been the best. Decent wine list with some good, interesting values.
