A friend’s 60th birthday was a great opportunity to celebrate with a meal for 20/25 people.

It was a fun, and tasty, meal, (of course) prepared by Serge who was sharing his time between the kitchen and our table to also take advantage of the meal and wines.

I didn’t write everything down, but we drank Champagne Blanc and Rosé, Le Pin 2000 and 2001 , Ausone 2000, Pavie 2000, La Mondotte 2000, Cheval Blanc 1998 and Pétrus 1990: all good, even being so different, a delicious Croix de Labrie 2007, and 3 wines from 1950: Pavie, Fleur Pétrus and Clos Fourtet, more than Madère.

I was a bit tired and not fit to properly enjoy all these great wines. But seeing everyone having a good time compensated largely.
