Congratulations, sounds great. So now how are you going to top it next year for the actual 60th?

Still, didn't realize you came from such a powerhouse vintage, you could have lots of fun (and spend lots of money) exploring Birth Year wines..

Willy, thanks for nice note. Glad you tried a birthyear wine.

Actually 1947 is a legendary year for Bordeaux, at least the Right Bank. The problem is that the prices for the top St Emilions and Pomerols are legendary , too!

Who cares about Bordeaux, it was legendary in the Loire!

But, I think it was generally pretty hot, the 03 of the post-war years, so..
