But from time to time I do like to put aside a bottle of two of good, ageworthy if not overly expensive wines, in the hope that a budget special with sufficient credentials for aging will turn into something more enjoyable than its purchase price might predict.
So to celebrate a recent birthday, we pulled out and dusted off a bottle of a modest 1989 Bordeaux (a cru bourgeois from the relatively unheralded Medoc region called Moulis) that I had kept in a safe, cool place for the past six years or so.
I'm pleased to report that, while it didn't evolve into a first growth during its slumber, it was certainly doing well, and could easily have gone on for several more years. I can't find its original purchase price in my files, but doubt that it was much over $10.
