Or imagine being one of the unlucky bastards who spent a bunch of money to take a taste, and air had leaked in and they tasted 184 y.o. funk! Do you think you could get a refund? I've always wondered about these "old" wines that fetch a high price. How do you know it will be good? And if it's not? Who do complain to , certainly not the vinter? LOL
Excellent arcticle Con., that would be pretty cool inded to say you may have tasted something that special. I was surprised to see that they said it still had some hint of cabonation left.
I wonder if they paid anything to be one of the twelve, or were they just some of the friends to be called for the pleasure?
I like to think that one day someone will open something of mine that is old, but who knows.
I have a bottle of $100.00 cognac that was given to me that I've had close to thirty years.
