OH, THE CORKS
I'VE PULLED

I've been fortunate enough
to learn (and taste)
the great wines of Bordeaux.

Lafite, Margaux, Latour, Mouton, 
Ausone, Cheval Blanc, Haut Brion.
Years ago, when they were affordable.

I got in the habit of saving the corks
of these truly memorable wines.

Today, these same wines command
stratospheric prices.

Fortunately, there are many good wines
from great producers that fit my budget.

(Whew.)

  3. Ilove wine, but my favourite are those from Spain and Portugal. They are usually good value for money. Lovely collection, by the way:)
