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


Our first date was April 1. Too loaded with possibilities for red faces, so we don't mark it, but we do try to mark our anniversary monthly, with at least a nice bottle.

Funny. My wife said the same thing the other day when we were nattering at each other Smile

Seriously, it's been too long since we've shared a bottle. Let's try to make something happen this fall
2000 Giacosa Barbaresco Asili Riserva. 'Shouldn't have any problems with sediment, but this is one of those bottles to which I want to give every opportunity for it to perform its absolute best.

Good luck, PH. I'm guessing it'll need a long decant.


I was just chatting with another forumite about this wine, Board-O. Of the 1986s I've had in the last couple of years, this was by far the most evolved and expressive. I decanted the last one for 2 hours, and rebottled for the trip to dinner. It showed very well. If you have one, you might wish to give it a run!

PH
Thanks. Well they have been upright for 2wks now. As far as consumption and TGIF....will see how this frickin day goes...pretty certain at least one will be opened tonight Smile

Instant divorce I've been told for: Bermuda shorts with socks and black dress shoes, comb-over, or short cut-off jeans and tide-dye T-shirt. You don't even want to go to the thong thing

Good for you and if your bottle is half as good as the one we enjoyed you are in for a treat.

I've enjoyed a number of '86 Beaucastels over the past year or two and I hope your VT shows as well as they did. Post notes!
