I ran through some figures yesterday in my tasting notes yesterday. Went through 75 bottles in 2007, and at this moment, am at 81 bottles. However, for the entire month of August...only two. This is terrible - no drinking means no learning. But what can you do when your bank account keeps hemeorrhaging money.
What I'd really like to drink right now? A mature, left bank claret, with some nice pan seared lamb ribs, finished with a hunk of roquefort and 2001 Ch. Guiraud.
