Four decades later, these two bottles of hopefully-still-alive wine are not long for this world. To help cling to relative youth, I’m going to photograph this evening’s events with a 46 year old Leica. So it might be a few days until I have photos developed and scanned. But in just a few hours, we indulge!

Figuring that prices would skyrocket leading up to the 40th anniversary of a renowned vintage, I signed up for a few waiting lists a while back, and promptly forgot about it. But it was through those mailing lists that I ended up scoring a bottle of 1970 Latour, Paullac. This is exciting because a) one of my wine mentors favors Latour among aged Bordeauxs b) Robert Parker gushes over this exact wine c) it means that I am actually going to go through with this goal and d) I have an excuse to learn how to pronounce Paullac.
Now I have three years to stock up on Easy Cheese and decide who I’m sharing the bottle with. If I can parlay this into a bidding war, so much the better.
Lucky me, it was one of their finest vintages ever.
