My brother-in-law who lives in Florida, gifted me a Chateau Latour 1986. He did it so casually that I didn’t register it. Now that I have it sitting with me, I am dying to drink it with a few wine lovers. And since I have never drunk a Grand Cru wine, I googled it to discover that it was a $1000 wine. Wine lovers will say that judging a wine by its price tag is very crude. But frankly, I have no other standard by which to judge it, having never tasted such wines.
I prefer to spend money on experiences rather than objects, but gosh, even I feel bad about drinking up such an expensive wine in one evening. Middle class values, I suppose. I’ll tell you how it goes.
