We are in Bordeaux, at the end of the 1950s, in one of the town’s best restaurants. Alexis Lichine is standing surrounded by the greatest Bordeaux wine merchants and winemakers, focussed on the glass in his hand. The test is to guess the estate and the year of the precious liquid. A challenge that even the greatest connoisseurs fear.
Alexis Lichine concentrates and by its colour identifies it as an old wine. The bouquet, subtle with fragrances of forest undergrowth, fruits and cedar wood, very probably indicates a Médoc.
