Pete, I've never had any of the wines you mentioned but with the exception of the Sauternes, those other wines shouldn't be touched for quite a while. Especially the Pavie. I've had much lower level Bordeaux from those vintages, and only the simpler ones from 2004 are drinking decently. You sure you want to open those?

Damn, I sound like Board-O! He would likely make a much stronger case than me though, with experience of that caliber of juice. Wink
I was thinking the same but want to crack something special for her b-day. If not, I have some older sine qua non eba's I could dip into, just not the same.

Would like to hear others suggestions and see if concensus is to not open them. I am listening with open ears.

Peter
Ditto Bill. Ditto PH.

When you mean "just not the same" I'd translate that to mean, "they'll be better."

Those young Bdx wines will be tannic bruisers, nowhere near ready to open. The SQN juice you have should drink MUCH better and be a more pleasant way to spend your bride's birthday.

If you don't want to dip into those either, Champagne is always in style.

I agree with these guys as well. I don't even think a ton of decanting will help these wines open to even close to what you want. I'd go with the sqn's.

Yup.

Where are you located Drpete12? If you had your heart set on opening good Bordeaux for your wife's birthday I still think you could pull off a trade. You certainly have good trade bait.

Good question! Certainly not to settle sediment, as there is none in the bottle. I just kinda pulled it from the back of the cellar and stood it next the LB to grab and go for dinner. I'm not doing harm by standing it for a few days, am I?

That's a new one for me. I've picked up molasses, burnt sugar, spice, from the darker ones; light, diminished fruit from the lighter ones, and caramel, fruit, spice... from those in between - but never petrol from an older Sauternes.

I only have one bottle of this, and other wines from the same cellar (bought at LWS) have been excellent. Would you define "just about ready" as within an optimal window, or as hold? I've no problem in laying this one back down.

By April so much snow has fallen in parts of Canada that it cannot be removed because there is nowhere to put it. So you can't get out of your driveway and are stuck at home. So, unless there is hockey or curling on TV, there is little else to do!

As a matter of fact, there was a little. Or maybe more than a little - I did the Mollydooker shake and didn't finish the bottle so hard to say, but there was some when I decanted it.


Just finished the bottle, and nearly gagged on the sediment in the last sip. Think a 21 year old vintage port and you get the idea!

I haven't found anything that throws of sediment like a good Aussie shiraz. Maybe vintage port as mentioned but the Two Hands, mollydookes, Mitolos etc really seem to pile it up moreso than other wines I drink.

Their sweet spot for TCA, for sure.


No doubt. I haven't had one for at least 5 years, but my last one was really, really good. Could have had something to do with the surroundings (great friends, last night on a private beach in the Bahamas, perfectly cooked chateaubriand and grilled Bahama lobster) but I think it would have been great regardless!! Cool

PH
Very special occassion. Dinner with friends. Other than family, what can be better?

The wine was fantastic, but I'm holding the remainder for at least 5 years. This was still an infant and would have been mistaken for something from 2006 or younger.

You will definitely be rewarded for holding on despite it's great showing tonight.

I will need to rearrange my fragile mental makeup righ now. the masseto and angelus crashed on my garage floor this morning as my wife opened the fridge to get a pair of eggs!!! I had stood then up in the fridge last night so they stay cool during the long drive in the afternoon. Damn SQN was the only one to survive the fall Frown


Holy smoke! ONE of those would be a tragedy; I'm not even sure what the correct word is for two.

In sympathy for your plight, I will not eat any eggs for at least the next week.

OMG, how does a marriage survive this? Wink


50/50 at best with lots of professional counseling. Wink


Counseling smouneling, body shots which can be covered easily does the trick Razz



For that price....they had better come with a 'happy ending' Cool


Condolences and I hope there is a happy ending. Can't blame you for the couple of sips from the floor.
I feel your pain, Gk - Canada Customs confiscated and destroyed $1500 worth of wine when my wife returned to Canada, due to a mistake by the packers! Frown Mad Of course, that was over 3 cases, but it did include two bottles of 85 Fonseca amongst other favourites.

True true. Don't judge, but I did take couple of sips of masseto/angelus from the floor.


I judge that to be a completely reasonable action.

Sorry for your loss.

U didnt learn your lesson the 1st time? Big Grin....I joke....I have not had the pleasure to have this wine.....I would have licked the floor dry!
Maybe a couple of years apart. I had bought 2 bottles of the 1966 Mouton in 1978 or 1979. A bottle slid out of a bin and broke. I slurped a taste off the basement floor. A year, two years, whatever later, a bottle of wine slipped out of a top bin and as it fell, I stuck my foot out and broke its fall. It didn't break, and I was feeling proud of myself until I smelled wine and saw a puddle forming. I had prevented the falling bottle from breaking with my foot, but I had deflected onto the next of a bottle in the bottom row. I looked to see which bottle, and to my horror, it was my other bottle of 1966 Mouton.
