I think you may have tasted a fake bottle recently, but that thread was curiously deleted by the "thread police"! which makes it all the more a question of truth vs fakery. And these were old bottles, just think how much could be made with counterfeit First Growths in today's marketplace! Cost for bottles, labels, and cork, filled with any left bank cru bourgeois could result in a clear profit of about $600 per bottle. Be careful!
What does that have to do with Broadbent?
If w+a and Michael Broadbent missed a counterfeit wine, then perhaps it's more difficult to recognize counterfeit wines than one might realize!
Broadbent was also my first wine critic of repute!
