The living legend Sir Alex Ferguson ended his magnificent managerial career just the way he would want – with an excellent glass of red wine.
The Manchester United manager declared himself satisfied with the 2003 Chateau Pontet Canet, bought especially for the occasion. Steve Clarke was delighted it did Ferguson justice.
Our Chairman Johnny Goedhuis drank this wine at Pontet Canet on Thursday night with a Bordeaux legend, Alfred Tesseron of Chateau Pontet Canet.
“Sir Alex said he knew the wine and it was a good year,”
I have to agree with Sir Alex. This is a classic Pauillac-styled wine. Excellent now but has the legs to improve over the next few years. Hopefully we can say the same for David Moyes’ new squad that he brings in this Summer.
