I​ drank a 33yo wine and I loved it!

T​he requested video of me tasting the 33yo wine from a very dirty bottle

H​i FoodTribe, a few weeks ago I posted some photos of some bottles of wine that I received as a gift from a 70yo man who was cleaning up his 300 bottle collection. One bottle was 33yo old and completely caked in dust, dirt and mold.

I​ asked everyone on FoodTribe what I should do with it and on a poll of "should I drink it in front of the camera" it was clear that some people liked too see me try it, or would love too see me vomit on the camera. 73% of all the participants said "YES".

S​o last night I teamed up with @Doug F & @Jane Fyffe on Discord with a video call. I was great fun as always and after some fooling around we got to the point of the "dirty bottle". I recorded the session of me opening it and drinking it.

T​he bottle was still covered in dirt, dust and mold. Too make it worse I had some trouble of getting grip on the cork because it was completely disintegrating. But after some time it got out and the cork was really disgusting.

N​ow the bottle was open I had too drink it, because with the fresh oxygen the wine could turn bad very quickly and so I took a deep breath and started drinking.

O​w and............ I LIKED IT A LOT!!!

T​he wine was a dry wine but because of it's age it was a bit more sweet and it tasted always like honey. The wine was also a bit thicker than I was used too. Unfortunately one hour after the bottle opened the wine turned quickly bad and within 2 hours it was not drinkable anymore. Still it was a great experience and I hope that I will receive another old bottle of wine one day so I could try that as well.

I​n the end the evening was a success, even when I tried a "simple solution" on the wine bottle to filter the wine while pouring it in my glass. I put a teabag over the bottle and try pouring it but it failed and the result was that my keyboard was completely messed up. But me being an engineer was able too fix it within 3 hours (yeahhh!!!).

M​y solution (DON'T TRY IT NEAR A KEYBOARD)

Anyway the only thing left is showing the screen recording and it's underneath this article. With thanks to @Doug F & @Jane Fyffe

  • I am glad I got to be a part of the fun. Most of all I am happy you did not end up sick from it.

    • Yes and no headache too (at least not from the wine, but from the cleaning stuff of my keyboard) Even while I drank half a bottle in the end
