2005 Bordeaux Drinking Well! – Chateau Destieux

Destieux 05

We reached into the 2005 Bordeaux this week and pulled out a bottle of Chateau Destieux. This St. Emilion wine comes from old vines, and it certainly delivered. We’re not quite sure if it is at its peak yet, but it is close. Very drinkable now it will be good for many years yet, so

You don’t generally equate good seafood with Hershey, PA. Chocolate obviously. Probably a good steak house as well, but seafood?

IMG_1452

Good wine pops up in the most unexpected places sometimes. Take central Pennsylvania for example. This is not exactly a hotbed of wine production, but like most every place in the country these days there are wineries about.
