The other night I opened a bottle of 2002 Verget Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons Vieilles Vignes de Minots only to have it be badly corked. So last night, after getting home from a week away, I opened another bottle of the same wine. Well it was woefully oxidized, deep gold in color with sherry-esque aromas.
So I am 0 for 2, and to add to my displeasure I discovered two more bottles of the same wine lurking in a corner of the cellar. I can only hope that one of them is actually drinkable.

I haven't had the top of the line but I still remember how impressive a village level Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet was at an after-event party in DC. Hoping to replicate that taste, I have just ordered two bottles of the 2007 Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet.
