This week topic is Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh.
Trivia quiz: “It is fresh but it is not fresh. What is it?”
I just opened my Saint Emilion 2007 wine. Tasty and fresh. It is fresh but still it is from 2007. Unlike fresh juice, older wine will give an unique and fresh taste.

In 1955 the wines of Saint-Émilion in the wine-growing region of Bordeaux were classified. Unlike the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855 covering wines from the Medoc and Graves regions, the Saint-Émilion list is updated every 10 years or so. Following the initial classification, the list was updated in 1969, 1986, 1996 and most recently in 2006. However the 2006 classification was declared invalid following a series of legal actions, and the 1996 version of the classification has been reinstated for the vintages from 2006 to 2009.
The picture on the label is not so clear as it is a background. It makes the distraction on the label.
I have not tasted this wine yet but I like to put it on my wine rack collection.

Saint-Émilion is an Appellation d’origine contrôlée (AOC) for wine in the Bordeaux wine region of France, where it is situated in the Libourne subregion on the right bank of the Dordogne. Saint-Émilion is registered as a world heritage by UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. The wines of Saint-Émilion are typically blended from different grape varieties, the three main ones being Merlot (60% of the blend), Cabernet Franc (nearly 30%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (around 10%).
The red color label on the bottle cap is so eye catching. I have not tasted this wine yet. I like to put it on my wine rack collection.
