Alexis Lichine is standing surrounded by the most excellent Bordeaux wine merchants, and winemakers focused 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, probably indicates a Médoc. Alexis Lichine brings the glass to his lips and immediately thinks of a Saint-Estèphe with its characteristic fullness. The vine reveals no tannins, which have disappeared over time, indicating a pre-war wine. The flavour, full and deep, reminds him of the year 1929. Only three chateaux in Saint-Estèphe can produce a wine of such calibre, and only the Cos d’Estournel has this chocolaty taste and depth. In front of an astonished audience, Alexis Lichine pronounces his verdict: Cos d’Estournel 1929. At only 46 years old, he joins the legendary ranks of the greatest wine connoisseurs.
