    Default A Classic Red

    Does anyone else have one of these classics?

    As the photo below shows, it has never been opened.

    The label reads (sic);

    CHATEAU LE PUG
    BIN 403B
    BLEND : SOCHAUX-CABRIOLET

    After picking on Bastille Day 1972, the
    grapes were crushed by being fed through
    a 403 differential (connoisseurs will
    detect a hint of Castrol STH 140 on the
    middle palate). After masturation in a 203
    sump for 12 months (or 10,000 miles
    whichever came first), the wine was bottled
    using ex-Doug Weinert sump plug corks. This
    wine won the gold medal at the 1978 Dapto
    Car Club Concourse D’Elegance as the most
    Original dry red in the under 2000cc class.

    Contents 750cc (unsupercharged)


    Does anyone know of its origin? I am sure I received it as a prize at the first (?) Easter Pageant hosted by the Canberra Peugeot Club in the last 70’s.

    Cheers,

    That sounds far too good to drink....

    However it may be useful when it comes to refinishing the paint on your 404.
