Opened up a bottle of 1998 Louis Bernard Châteauneuf du
Pape for Christmas. Excellent year for the region with a smooth texture
and bold taste. It was heartbreaking when
one of the children dropped their Barbie doll into a glass and the wine
spilled out of the glass onto the table. Aside from watching the carpet
get stained, that's a high value of wine that just got wasted.
