LEGENDARY MAGNUMS AT THE FRENCH LAUNDRY FOR MY 55th BIRTHDAY

A MAGNUM OF 1958 LA TACHE — 58 IS MY BIRTH YEAR.

THE MAGNUM OF 1962 LA TACHE BELOW WAS ONE OF THE GREATEST BOTTLES OF WINE I HAVE EVER HAD — AND BY FAR THE BEST BOTTLE OF LA TACHE.  AS YOU CAN SEE, IT WAS NUMBER 346.  IT WAS FROM THE CELLAR OF WOLFGANG GRUENWALD (ONE OF THE ORIGINAL FOUNDERS OF THE ROPP), AND HE GOT IT ON RELEASE FROM DRC.  I GOT IT FROM HIM (THE 1971 MAGNUM WAS NOT TOO SHABBY EITHER!).  THE 1962 AND 1971 ARE PROBABLY THE TWO GREATEST VINTAGES OF LA TACHE.
