Birthday treat

I celebrated my birthday this weekend with a superb bottle of St. Estephe (Bordeaux) by Lafon-Rochet, from the great 2000 vintage. With the kids safely tucked up in bed we shared it with a simple spread of French bread and cheese whilst curled up on the sofa watching a scary movie (Nightcrawler), pretty hard to beat.

The wine was a showing really well and still has plenty of time left; powerful, earthy and dense, oak infused blackberries with a lovely crème de cassis dimension to it; a fine Northern Medoc; I've got two more bottle left and I think I'll hang onto them for a while.
