Also I like spinning capsules on newer wines such as these as they show no seepage.

Re: Wine from Normandy?

I have been to a Calvados producer. It is made from apples or perry.

The crux of the foregoing debate is whether fruit wine counts as brandy or only wine from grapes.

Sattler and Wallner are good producers, and Brundlmayer.

Zweigelt, Blaufrankisch,and St Laurent are varieties to look for. And Cabernet Franc.

Lots of very good wines over there which don’t make their way over here - after a year your son could be making recommendations!

Re: 1945 Vintage but New Looking Bottle

Echoing what others said about old wine new bottles - common for Madeira, Rivesaltes, PX Sherry, Colheita, others.

About 7 years ago I had 1945 Cazes Rivesaltes which looked like this - new bottle - but tasted very authentic.

Not saying this is but the new bottle is totally understandable.
