Wine lovers: I need some Bordeaux advice for my birthdayMay 26th, 2010
Another drink on the agenda for my 50th Birthday celebrations is a great bottle of Bordeaux that my wife and I will share at dinner.
About eight years ago, I purchased one bottle each of the five “First Growth” Bordeaux Wines (Lafite Rothschild, Latour, Margaux, Haut-Brion, and Mouton-Rothschild) from the famed 2000 vintage, with the intention of opening one bottle every five years, beginning with my 50th birthday and ending with my 7oth birthday.
I haven’t done much research yet, but maybe one of you already has the answer. Which one do you think has matured the fastest and is most ready to be consumed first? And why?
I welcome your insights. Thank you!
