Purcari Estate Negru de Purcari 1963, Moldova
More than half-a-century old, this is a frail wine now, tired and fading. There are still hints of the vibrant currant fruit and leathery spice that made this a favourite of leaders like Leonid Brezhnev and the Politburo. The Soviet answer to Claret echoes the politics it emerged from; faded but still just alive.
