The restaurant to ourselves.




1990 La Mission and 1996 Angelus.




A girl and her chocolate ice cream.


Happy Birthday to your wife, and congrats on a beautiful and merry family! Wish I had started to enjoy the good wine as young as your children did! ;-)) Cheers my friend.

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

Sounds terribly cute, love it!😍👍🥂

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! 

Thank you so kindly. I meant to take pictures, but was so in the moment.

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!!

 
 By: Spencer Karrington : September 15th, 2021-00:37
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!

The Submariner is 20 ATM in chocolate ice cream.

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

A job she would be happy to do if it comes with free ice cream.

Smart gal!

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

LMAO. I’ll explain this to her tomorrow. She will love 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!!!!

Very handsome family, take care of them.

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 ‘90 must’ve been spectacular.

Best
Gatsby


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

You’re absolutely right in that the ‘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 structured it hits all the notes. The ‘96 Angelus interestingly took quite a bit longer to open up so I took half the bottle home for later when it shows well. A very fine wine, but the 1999 La Mission. In fact I’d put the ‘90 La Mission ahead of the ‘90 Angelus, which I’ve had recently. Now the 2000 Angelus in a few years may exceed them all. Just me thoughts anyway. Best,

Great occasion...

Happy greetings to your wife!
The '90 LMHB must be drinking just about fine now.
