On that next to last day of the week, we eased into the tasting with some lovely wines from the middle of the Médoc region, a fairly long, narrow rustic peninsula just north of Bordeaux, where small farms are interspersed with vineyards and very small villages.
Alec White is one of those amazingly generous people who took the suggestion "open your cellar, open your heart," well, to heart. He sent three different bottles. This is the first, a 1989 Chateau Talbot. Retail value is $125.00.
