Last Sunday, we invited a few friends over for a “peasant’s dinner.” I had spent several days milk-braising a pork butt, which we served in a tomatoey sauce over polenta, along with some broccolini tossed in olive oil, anchovy paste, red pepper flakes and some parm. My friend Amy had made a now-famous warm shrimp and tuscan bean recipe, Adam brought homemade vanilla ice cream, and William—well, William, who was bringing the wine, went a different direction altogether. Let’s call it a rags-to-riches selection: a bottle of 1990 Chateau Lynch Bages Bordeaux, a truly spectacular wine from a truly spectacular vintage. It’s a powerhouse Cab-heavy blend with smokey, dark plummy flavors and a bit of spice. Oh my god. William, thank you so much for sharing this incredible bottle!
