The restaurant to ourselves. 1990 La Mission and 1996 Angelus. A girl and her chocolate ice cream. ...  

Thank you my friend. Hee hee the kids just smelled the wine.

Actually the face on my daughter was priceless after she smelled the apres dinner cognac. I think it nearly burnt her eyebrows.

please wish your wife a happy bday!!! You have a beautiful family!! P.s. pls share more pics of the food and of your watch if you have!

I should have to do the chef justice. As for watches I was wearing an old trusty Submariner, which is dear to my heart as it was my second real watch.

Lolz, that is the most important though!!

As you can never relive that moment! Well now, you have a very good excuse to go back lol! Very practical reliable watch choice, you prob could have dunked it into the ice cream that your daughter had lol!

Your daughter may have found her future job, testing the endurance of rolexes lol

Smart gal!

I would never take a job unless it comes with free icecream ;p

Thank you IWC! We appreciate it.

I feel like we are rare. Hope our paths cross. Best,

Almost like dodo birds

You are correct we are a rare breed and any excuse to interact with fellow local watch nerds is fine by me. Take care and hopefully our paths will cross one day!!!!

I will. Thank you Thomas :)

Fantastic selection of wines my friend

Happy birthday to the missus! What a joy to see those two together! Never had a 96 Angelus before, but the LMHB โ€˜90 mustโ€™ve been spectacular. Best Gatsby

Thank you Mr. Gatsby. This Mrs. was very happy so that was happy. ;)

 By: emcquillan : September 15th, 2021-04:14
Youโ€™re absolutely right in that the โ€˜90 La Mission was sublime. We dropped the wine off at the restaurant and had them decant both bottles 90 minutes before arrival and La Mission was rustic, but that rustic Haut Brion amd Margaux type that is so well str... 

Great occasion...

 By: halkcb : September 15th, 2021-01:42,food,and stellar wines to boot! Happy greetings to your wife! The '90 LMHB must be drinking just about fine now. best henry

Happy birthday to your spouse!

Haha. Those wines predate me meeting my wife by quite a few years :)

Wine is a test in the virtue and patience. And marriage I guess too!! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Thank you dear Nicolas :)
