More #Bordeaux magnums from the dinner in #Miami . These three were all from 1995, a vintage where some of the wines have taken some time to come around. These are three of the best wines from 1995. First was the Château Pichon Lalande from #Pauillac . This is one of my favorites from 1995, as I’ve found it to be quite elegant and impeccably balanced. I found this to be a bit closed down and not really showing all of its complexity. The Château Haut-Brion was the best of the 95s, full of cassis and cigar box charm. The Château Lafite Rothschild was so young that you could almost mistake it for a 2005. I was able to taste all of these wines the next day, and all of them were considerably better. Even the Lafite started to show its age a bit. But this is a good example of how you should really save your Bordeaux magnums much longer than your standard bottles, or else wait to drink them on the second day.

🍾 There's a lot more to #wine bottle than standard sizes and Magnums. Here are some of other, larger sizes you might encounter in the wine wild.
And the wine label of the week goes to... | Frescobaldi’s Gorgona, a fantastic white from the island of the same name off the coast of Tuscany | The wine made by prisoners. Google their inspiring story | $89.99 👍👍👍
