We had some special friends over for dinner on Thursday. We prepared short ribs in a French style. We then compared the 1998 CC (it’s the oldest CC I have) vs. a 1990 Margaux. One of our guests fancies himself as a French wine kind of guy. I prefer American Cab, but I do appreciate a great Margaux. Both wines were fantastic, but everyone agreed that the best was the Clark-Claudon. It was really obvious. Thought you should know!! (but then I bet you already did).
