I stand corrected. Please excuse an ex-wino's memory.

It was a long time ago but I do remember going back to the merchant and buying every bottle he had though it was the most expensive bottle I'd bought at that time.

I see La Mancha is a large wine region so ignore anything I said about it

The late 70's must have been good times for reds; my most memorable red was a Mudgee Huntington Estate Cabernet, from that period -- yes, very local, and at a very reasonable price in a restaurant of that town no less, but especially notable because it instantly converted my wife into a red wine lover. Having a Grange some years later was a bit of letdown in some ways, after all the hype: you could taste the quality in the Penfolds wine, but the Mudgee effort was one of those "you can't imagine it getting any better than this" experiences ...

Will do that tonight, but mind you, PNP transistors (I think) will show up-side down, 'cos I use my own simbol, so you need to correct this.

Also, if you like numbers and low current consumption, go for discrete AD797 with J-fet input, it's a masterpiece (thank you Scott.

For French Burgundy, 1969, 1970, 1971, and 1972 was an almost unprecedented run of quite decent to very nice vintages. I'm not sure about the rest of the world.

I love the exceptions to the rule, and the "how could it get better than this" experiences. I cherish the folks I converted from "don't pour anything special for me, I just don't appreciate it" to solid wine aficionados. Particularly with reds.

Looks I have a lot more to learn here than I initially thought as I only have an understanding for Scotch whiskey

Default 1976 Rumier Bonnes Mares

A 1976 Rumier Bonnes Mares is a really rare piece of wine! Priced at around 450 USD. Heck, I can get me a short for that price

Was it still OK and not too oxidised?

20 years ago i dreamed about drinkng a Romane-Conti from domain Romanee-Conti but today I have given that dreamp up ...

Never give up, although it's true that for most of us, the only chance for such will be due to the largesse of a very rich friend, or at least a collector who got started very early in life.

Brad is right choose your friends wisely, I think the $29.95 tag was still on the bottle. Also choose friends that are brutally honest and don't worship what they love. The wine was in perfect condition but I find Roumier a little too "polite" for me. I drank it anyway.

The 70's were 50/50 you also have 1973, 1974, 1975, 1977, 1979 where the 1977's were scandalous (should have been distilled). I tasted the DRC's on release and those around the table were in disbelief (they ended up all being recalled). This was the end of the way it was, global warming (they say) is now making all vintages marketable, right.

There were several until Hollywood released 'Sideways' and screwed my happiness. Now the total number of US-imported cases of French Pinot Noir is 100x the official numbers of *all* production of Pinot Noir in France.
Do the math, most of the stuff is likely to be Syrah-Merlot rebadged as Pinot Noir - most sheeple can't tell the difference. Real Pinot Noir has a distinctive steely edge in the finish - a bit like licking antique ironware.

The 2-buck *real* Pinot Noir, but grown in Coastal CA or OR, was Nathanson Creek, available at Safeway. That's one of several inexpensive gems from the US that I miss in Bangalore; Ghirardelli chocolates are another.
