Grand Vin de Bordeaux
The bouquet of cherries, plums, and flowers is nice but has to be drawn out. Upon immediate pouring, it is pretty hot. Elegant fruit taste, bold tannins, but still a bit hot even after left in a glass to settle for 1 hr, and on Day 2. Full bodied. ...

This bottle of wine was part of a lot I bought on the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/85406.

It is an 'umbrella' appellation because it includes severa... Read More

They became daily quaffers wh... Read More

Moses had asked Pharaoh to allow the Jewish people to leave Egypt. He refused. After each refusal, God visited a series of increasingly serious plagues on the Egyptian people, culminating in the slaying of the f... Read More
