Quote from Geddy Lee taken from the book "Oldman's Guide to Outsmarting Wine": "A number of years ago I was traveling through the northern Rhone with a good friend, en route to a tasting at a winery when we decided to stop at a restaurant…When we sat down we noticed that they… listed a 1978 [Comte de] Vogüé Musigny [red Burgundy] for about 80 dollars! Well, like most wine-geeks, we couldn’t resist a bargain and even though it was early…we decided to have lunch and enjoy what turned out to be one of the greatest bottle of Burgundies I’ve ever had. It may sound corny but the reward of finding a hidden treasure is taking the time to enjoy it with good food and good friends."
