A wine for princes, simply that! And one I had never tasted, though I've been in the South3 a lot. I have been laying the foundation of a long friendship with it tonight. It's soft as a purple butterfly's wing.
The case arrived on Friday. For the first time in history Josephine4 came bursting into my room and into my afternoon nap, like
a joyful elephant. Her husband5 had been in
that Rothschild vineyard6 many times,
because two of his friends worked there. I had the size and history of the vineyard
pretty well ground into me before I could get to the
invaluable Martin Shand7. It is a superb wine, and
shall be reserved for special occasions when I feel a little hard and
fo want to have a glow put into things, a kind of
stained glass treatment of pallid daylight.
