1996 Louis Brochet-Hervieux HBH 1er Cru Champagne. Not having much luck these days with older Champagne. A bit controversial on release, today my other half didn't like it at all. I ended up finishing -- as opposed to enjoying -- the bottle. Not sure what we will do with the other one. Anyone have a boat that needs to be christened?
2008 Le Vieux Pin Syrah. First Syrah release from this Okanagan winery, from young vines. Showed very well on release; the question was how well it would age. And the answer is very well. Lovely wine, that doesn't feel its age. Wish I had more of the 2008.
