Just Bought

I have a clear memory of it, not the time or place, but the taste. Aha, this is what a Bordeaux should taste like!
It must have been around 87 or 88, I had only previous tasted minor Bordeaux bottles that had been bottled by the State Monopoly (now, thankfully, a thing of the past), when a bottle of 1982 Chateau Fonreaud came my way. 
So many, many wines have been tasted and drunk since then and I still remember many of them, but the 1982 Fonreaud have a special place in my heart.
And now a bottle of 1978 - can't wait to open it!
