This summer marks the 25th anniversary of the Economic Summit or as it is also known the 16th G7 summit.

We’re lucky to have a large amount of materials documenting this special event. This includes a bottle of wine.

This “red table wine” hails from Tulette, France and was made at Cellier des Dauphins in Côtes du Rhône.

Would you still drink it? I think I might pass.

  1. They need to cellar that bottle and store it property. It appears to have lost considerable volume and the last time I noticed, Fondren was not a wine cellar!

    • Hopefully, someone else did.

      We just hold on to it as a record of what happened. We would be bad archivists if we ever drank it.
