I had to think back first bottle of wine was a 1966
Chateau Lafite that I opened way, way, way too soon in 1971..paid
$20.00 for it.....I didn't know how to love it and actually didn't
appreciate it much at all, being that it was still young and full of
tannins...but the one that won me over was a 1966 Chateau La
Gaffeliere at The Abbey Restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia
