oh well…

Update 17.9.2020(1.9.2020)billn

Ah – the anticipation. The ritual of opening so carefully. Not to mention finding the right filter for the photos!

Previous bottles of this from Bertagna were fabulous, but: Ah – the cloudy wine. The smell of mushrooms, of beef, of cork – lots and lots of cork! The sound of wine pouring down the sink because we don’t have the chance to make beef bourguignon in the next week or so…

    I thought these were primarily like investment – bitcoins of the wine world! Passed from owner to owner, never meant to be consumed! 🙂

    To hold for future use in making boeuf bourgignon, coq au vin or a red wine sauce just freeze the bottle till needed. Or reduce it now and then freeze the concentrate.

      I’m not a fan of freezing liquid in bottles, Fred, but provided I can schedule the beef in the next week to 10 days I’ll happily leave the wine stoppered in the fridge. Otherwise, there’s always another bottle 🙂

    Interesting… how does corked wine taste in cooking???

      Only like wine 🙂 TCA is volatile and is lost along with the alcohol…

        Thanks for the reply; this is excellent to know! Fortunately, I have not had the misfortune of having a bottle of corked wine, but with this knowledge I am prepared for when it happens.
