So Jeff Garneau hands me a bottle yesterday and says, "Take this home and have it with a meal. You'll love it." Always making sure to follow his advice explicitly, I went home and prepared a roast chicken with potatoes, along side a rustic bean stew. While 1997 isn't the most prestigious vintage in Bordeaux history, we've had some tremendous success with value wines from that year (i.e. Langoa Barton - destined to go down in the K&L hall of fame). After pouring myself a glass, relishing the savory and earthy characters of the wine, while still enjoying plenty of soft fruit, I was certain that the 1997 Terry Gros Cailloux, St. Julien $19.99 would cost me around $35 to $40. When I got back to the store today and found that we had loaded up at the $20 price point, I about fainted. This wine is an absolute steal - I'm still not sure how we got it for this price. All I can say is this: if you enjoy Bordeaux, or more mature wine in general, then you cannot miss out on this. The staff will probably buy most of it, but we'll do our best to leave some for our customers.
