I was at my friend, Suja’s home last night and we had some great laughs. Suja and I went to Women’s Christian College, Chennai together. Last night, they opened their wine frig and offered me some wine. None of the other three drink, so it was up to me to pick. I chanced upon a Sauterne. It was a 1997 Chateau Doisy-Daene L’Extravagant de Doisy-Daene, Sauternes, France.
At the IIM class I taught, I recall wine specialist Abhay Kewadkar telling me that some Sauternes are really rare and as good as Bordeaux reds. So I tried it. It’s a bit sweet for me, but when I googled it, I discovered that is garners over 90 points. And we didn’t even know it. Thanks, Suja 🙂
