Much was accomplished today.
Received the bulk of my 2006 Bordeaux order - my Futures order from 2 years ago, of course. Pulled out a bottle of Pindefleurs, to drink now. I certainly wasn't going to leave an empty slot in the case, so I filled it with a bottle from this release - a 2005 Château Faizeau Vielles Vignes, AC Montagne St-Émilion. I adore Faizeau. Very old vines, 100% merlot, with a depth and complexity that many blends cannot achieve. Look around, and you'll be surprised - quality is not exclusive to big-money appellations.
Drove immediately to my friend's home, to cellar these wines. I can't thank them enough. Much gratitude, much appreciation.
Pulled out a few older wines to drink. Weekend coming up, and I already have my drinking list ready...
