The Manchester United manager declared himself satisfied with the 2003 Chateau Pontet Canet, bought especially for the occasion, with Steve Clarke delighted it did Ferguson justice.
"He knew what it was," said Clarke proudly. "He said it was a good year."
The post-match drink followed a staggering game, as United cruised into a 3-0 lead, and then 5-2, before being pegged back by a dogged West Brom side, who salvaged a 5-5 draw.
It was the first time a United team had drawn by such a score since Newton Heath were held by Lincoln in 1895. It was also the highest scoring draw in Premier League history.
"I am not sure Sir Alex enjoyed it that much," said Clarke.
"There is no point analysing the game. We had a great Plan A, which went out of the window after 10 minutes.
"It was a great occasion. That game will be remembered for a long time.
"He was quite complimentary about our season and I wish him all the best."
