Rob, In September we had a dinner with a client in London the gentlemen were so generous they brought 3 wines to dinner, , a 1989 Lynch Bages - which was an ethereal experience, absolutely reminded me why I got involved with wine. Only the 1982 Pichon Lalande had that same 'out-of-body' experience for me, with purple rimmed edge... and they also brought the 1999 Ch. Palmer - which was of course lovely, but not ethereal like the '89 Lynch Bages (which I later learned Parker has scored 100 pts later in life!
I've had enough bad experiences purchasing old bottles on the market to know, what you're purchasing is not a great wine but it is a bottle. I don't know if i stated that clearly.

if you want that magic experience to remember - you want to do something that you can be 100% certain of provenance.

Enjoy your experience..
