Why Big Red Diary?

stuart george on his 1937 romanée-conti…

Following on from the post of ‘nine decades of domaine de la romanée-conti‘ there is this follow-up from Stuart George MW referring to the ‘too good to be true‘. It’s missing lots of info, like ‘when was the case bought from the domaine?’, ‘how many owners since then?’ etcetera, etcetera. But interesting nonetheless – I’d have liked to see a pic or two, also…

Actually, I expect this 1937 was genuine from the perspective that it’s (probably) easy to make something young-looking, but to make something that experienced tasters think worthy of 101 points – well, that’s something else again, and rare enough from genuine bottles…!

EDIT: A nice pic from Stuart:

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
