I am staying in upstate NY near the finger lakes, at a small hotel, that is next door to a "bottle shop". It's a anti-French bottle shop actually, in that they carry bourbon, vodka, cordials, but no Cognac whatsoever. The other evidence of anti-French sentiment is a $10.49 2002 Pomerol.
Since I had only carry on, I will likely be stripped of my cheap cork screw Friday at the Albany airport, but before I leave for Albany Wednesday night, I am stopping at the shop and buying the last 2 dusty Pomerol bottles they have, and give one as a gift to co-workers in Schenectady. $10.49 for a Pomerol! Wow. Delicious. Serendipitous. It is all about timing.
