I finally organized my wine ref. It had become such a mess that I was no longer sure what I had in it.
This despite the fact we have a couple of glasses every night. No excuse. Because of this I discovered several bottles that i thought would be way past its prime. I randomly opened a couple only to realize that some of the wines had began to die .... The lesson here is that you shouldn't keep waiting for "that right moment" to open a good bottle of wine. There almost always is a good reason to open a bottle of wine! Plus somewhere around the world it's happy hour :-)
So tonight I decided to open a 17-year old bottle of Chateau Ducasse Graves 1996 i had bought from Bacchus years ago. I was crossing my fingers and hoping it was still alive.
