Wine unboxing

At one of the frequent tastings a Ball Square Fine Wine, I noticed that they now stock Chat en Ouef and I also tasted a nice Bordeaux for a wooden box. Well, most likely from a plastic bag inside that box. But anyway, at $39 for 3 liters (that's four regulation 750ml bottles) it seemed like a good buy. Here's the unboxing - and reboxing as it were.

It's got a convenient carrying handle and sure looks nice with my Vanshnookenraggen MTA subway map posters. I'm sure you know by now that I think wood is the new white.

Unless you're already drunk you can probably manage these directions.

I was a bit unnerved by the prolapsed wine sack, but everything got neatly tucked back into place.

Here's the spout, ready to serve.

I think putting box wine in a nicer box - with a nice spout - was a great marketing move by the Lhorens team. I'm not really sure you should age wine in a plastic bag, but if you're not up to drinking three liters at a sit-down, I bet it'll keep better in there than in a glass bottle with lots of extra air.
