    This may sound gross to you initially, but try it - scotch (mixer-grade - I wouldn't do this with the Doublewood), ice, and milk mixed in a blender - yummm!

    ever since parker steered the whole world into these giant "in yer face" reds, there's no appreciation for a nice mellowed 40 or 50 year old bordeaux any more....
    tsk tsk. (he said, trying to be showy).

    '57 ch. lafite

    '66 La Mission (better than the showy place across the road!)

    '66 pape clement.
    what a beautiful bottle this turned out to be.

    ...that summer we also enjoyed a '66 Lafite, '66 Carruade de Lafite (which wasn't intended to go 40 years, and so didn't), a '66 Chev. Blanc, and a '66 Latour.

    those were the days.

    now itsa farkin box of white pinot grigio.
    at least i'm at home and not drinking mad dog 20/20 behind a dumpster.

    i don't HAVE mixer grade, my friend.
    but that sounds like a reason to get some!

    all right. deal.

    if i drag my ass to an egg fest down there, i won't be wearin a name badge. i'll just come up to you with a blender, some milk, and a scotch, and you'll know who it is.

  • Au contraire mon frere! I would gladly join your French summer! DANG, someone either called in a hit on a sommellier or inherited a serious collection!

    I agree with you. He probably got the empty bottles from the dumpster in the back of a restaurant he was talking about; as well as the meat in the picture; how else did he know that the boys there drink MD 20/20.

    Just kidding! Nice wines! Glad we don't have the Karma thing; he would have given me one down!

    Being in the mid Atlantic area there are many fine micro brewers out there to sample.I just might have to add Texas to the list and I am sure there are many more out there.Finally the good old U.S.A. can compete with the guys across the Atlantic for a robust brew to go along with that all night cook.Now I am not saying I stay up all night and drink beer and watch that but cook.No not really I play horseshoes in between under the light of the moon.Beers.

    still have another '57 lafite left over. if essex co could ever find time in his calendar, the four of us would tap it.

    found this pic in my photobucket album. this was me finishing off bottles for the recycle bin last winter.

    no kidding. all three went into the trash the same night. mind you, i didn't necessarily OPEN them the same night, but still.

    we have the best recycle bin on town, man.

  • This box needs a bottle just like that. Unfortunately the box is empty now.

    I consider that a great offer! I bet I could find some good wines to bring as well!

    well hell. if you bring something good, i might also bring my 1915 burgundy (though i'm betting she's toast now). ...though, she does have a high neck fill, still.

    bottled at the height of the war (WWI)... the last battles fought in the vineyards of burgundy. only 1100 cases bottled in the region that year.

    Depends on the conditions it was stored in. Intresting story was that my former company and a few others bought a $35,000 bottle of wine at a St. Judes auction.
    At that time it was the most expensive bottle of wine ever sold. Wine wasn't worth a flip; but the story has been good for years and years.
    Keep the 1915 wine; I belive that it would have a great sentimental value as well as a show piece.
    Just my thoughts!

    you are right, of course.

    the label is really faded. the guy who sold me the '57s was also selling this, relatively cheap, and i had him toss it in for free if i bought the two lafites. he thought it was a 1913. on closer inspection (label is foxed and faded a good deal) it was clearly 1915.

    i don't expect much of it.

    as you said, it's more in the hope-and-promise than it is in the actual drinking.

  • A '57? That's almost older than me. I can only throw an '86 on the pile. Let's discuss.

    you wine drinkers are a strange bunch, im just happy that the may edition of sam adams is more availabe at demoulas, hopefully the lowsy april edition is over.

  • stikestike Posts: 15,597
    you could partake too. but i have seen you drink beer, and i'm afraid to imagine what you'd do to a bottle of wine.

    '86 lafite, eh? i've never had one of those 'young' ones (i said, as if i ever had any others than the ones i always trot out from my brief bordeaux period!).

    yeah. we should figure out a good dinner, and drink both. is that one of your daughter's from her case?

    that was a brief period of indulgence. wish i could say that was how i lived all the time. got the '66s one at a time over about a year's time by stalking wine auctions, so that we could celebrate our 40ths in 2006. the '57s i got from a friend, relatively cheap, and after that, i think it'll be back to sam adams for me.

    forget about those old wines, get a nice bottle of 06 mateus, pour it in some fancy plastic beer cups and pair it with some fried chourico sausage, now we're talking. if it aint mateus it aint no use.

  • stikestike Posts: 15,597
