Default The curse of 7

Reading Jancis Robinson's review of the "007 Claret vintage reminded me of
the curse of 7 in respect of red Bordeaux.
1997 lightweight luncheon wines
1987 unremarkable
1977 light
1967 dire
1957 luncheon claret
1947 wonderful

as sometimes happens, when the reds are crap the sweet whites sing. 2007
Sauternes looks to be a stunner.
