Do you remember my post about finding some gems in Moxie’s store a month ago?  Well, here is another one, but for the life of me I can’t recall the tasting notes.  A Second Growth Bordeaux that rated very high with the pro’s, yet got some strange variations in drinking window.  A British magazine that I subscribe to gave it 4 stars yet  said it needed to be drunk in 2010 or 2011, whilst the boys on this side of the pond suggest a 2008-2030 window. Seems odd, but I’m going USA on this one.  1995 was a really good year for the French, and a wine of this pedigree should have all the parts to last a long time, evolve nicely and reward the owner for patience.  So, why did I drink it so long ago?  A party I guess, because my bottle was the large size, you know how I like to show off the Magnums!  Anyhow, I am sure it was awesome and I would have given it 5 stars etc.  etc.  etc.
