Michael and I last night celebrated our 13 year wedding anniversary (and 15 years since I moved to New Zealand). We celebrated with a wine that is 26 years old -- the Marc Bredif Vouvray Grande Annee 1988 and one that is probably my all-time-favourite wine (as is Michael's as you can see below).
Vouvray makes arguably the best Chenin Blanc wines in the world, based in the heart of the Loire valley next to the city of Tours. Aged examples demonstrate exquisite texture, power and complexity. The Marc Bredif Grande Annee is made only in exceptional years and 1988 was obviously an amazing one.
This wine was actually released for sale in 2012 -- there are not many wine producers who are willing to forgo 23 years of revenue in the interest of ensuring that the consumer does not drink the wine before it is ready.
