What are you standing?

I've got a 1990 Yquem slated for consumption, but I usually don't stand up Sauternes nearly as long. I've never had problems with sediment in Sauternes, and I rarely decant them.

Must be a special occassion. Enjoy

We're gonna' make it one! Smile The Barolo will be for a different occasion, but the Guigal will be accompanied by some of my other favorite Rhone-varietals from around the world (definitely to include SQN). I just didn't list them because I'm not standing them up nearly as long.
I have a 1991 Clos du Val Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon standing right now.

Also, I have a 1949 Francesco Rinaldi Barolo standing as well, but I need advice from anyone here with experience with old Barolos of this nature. Would you guys pop and pour this wine letting it make whatever transformation it may make, good or bad? Or, would you slow-o it in the afternoon to be served that evening?
I've had both the '94 and '97 Graham this year, both in 375 ml. I thought the '97 was more forward, certainly softer, but both were great wines.

I'm not talking you out of it. You already know it will improve for a long time still, but unless you have only one bottle, it's kind of a treat to experience the sheer intensity of a young Port-- sometimes it almost hurts the palate.

Happy Birthday to your bride, Marcb7.

Our anniversary was last week, but my wife was still in London, thus celebrating yesterday and today.

Our dating anniversary is later this month, so a lot of celebrating this month. Cool
