1989 Gaston Philippe Cuvee des Generations Chateau de la Gardine: Past its prime.

sept. 20, 2009: victoria's dad brought this out of his cellar and by the time we had arrived for the meal he had already sifted through various drawers to pull out what turned out to be a requisite filtering screen to save us from the significant amounts of sediment. we should have had this wine years ago; that's when it probably would have had more flavor. as it was, even with the salmon roe and the boutargue on crackers, this wine didn't distinguish itself hardly at all. that's alright, though; there were three more wines to go. current day price: $173.35, according to snooth.com. photo unavailable.
