Our eldest son just turned twenty one. When he was still a toddler, my wife and I bought a case of Chateau Lafite Rothschild  1989 to put away for this occasion. It is now officially his. Last night for dinner at home to celebrate that birthday, he opened his first bottle.

and had the first sip…

…before decanting it and drinking it with his birthday meal.

The wine was magnificent. Still young, dark and purple, it opened up with power and force, holding a lot of complexity and finesse within, promise for future special occasions.

    Sounds like something you’d also expect from your son. Regards!
