Default Wines drunk at G8 Summit Meeting

I think they started the meeting with, today my wife just returned pilattes
class looking good. We were having some friends over for a summitt so we
only had time for a quicky.

Then the other members showed up from the G8 with their concerns on the
starving. As a demonstration we gorged ourselves with food and wine...about
18 courses worth.

What a bunch of CRAP.

For the masses we have rising gas and fuel cost
For the leaders to rule over them we have 18 courses paired with wines.

PRICELESS!

Kind of strange that they list the lunch wines as Chateau Grillet 2005
which cost a minimum of $100 a bottle for a Condrieu yet they don't
list the name of the Chambolle Musigny 2005.

After reading the article I was expecting La Tache and the like maybe a
Petrus or Cheval Blanc or two. Not that this is a shabby offering, but
not as opulent considering the attendees as one was led to believe. And
Ian correct me if I am wrong but isn't the 99 Tokay on the young side if
they are going for bigbucks, my H. Johnson's shows 93 as more
appropriate for drinking now.

All of the wines, with the possible exception of the '97 MB, appear too
young. Yes, that Tokaji is probably an infant but who knows with the
limited information provided? Clearly, the wine wasn't a major focus of
that meal.
