This was tied for wine of the Thanksgiving weekend that included, among other great wines, the following: 1995 Cos d\’Estournel, 1996 Grand Puy Lacoste, 1998 La Mission Haut Brion, 2000 Beaucastel, 2001 Phelps Insignia, 2007 Les Cailloux, and some twenty other spectacular wines. The co-winner was a dazzling 2000 Smith Haut Lafitte, which is really rounding into form. The Vieux Telegraphe was stunning on the nose, stunning on the palate. It was popped and poured and was the immediate, hands-down, no-question-about-it favorite among the dozen or so who drank it. The 1998 Figeac was also a chocolate right bank beauty.
