While drinking, I kept thinking "we are not worthy!". Even though I haven't had much experience with Old World wines, even I recognized out of the 4 reds (this being number 4) that it was special. At 36 years, it's mind blowing that this still has life, character and fruit to it, though the fruit is secondary. Lots of herbs, funk, spice, leather. Still some power to it. What a treat to enjoy this wine.

It’s a Bordeaux evening with an aged 1981 Chateau Margaux. A wonderful ruby brown color. A distinct mint eucalyptus and red fruit nose with floral notes and a meaty beef scent. Red strawberry, tobacco and lead taste. A bit jammy and medium tannins. Enjoying this old Bordeaux with a variety of Italian foods: pizza, pasta and meat dishes and, of course, bread.
