Re: Quinta do Vesuvio Box Vertical, 13th FEB 2019

Thanks very much.
Alex will be there from around 2.30 so I think we are good. Agreed re timing being early- we may need to drink a bottle of port of the list prior to the tasting! You are most welcome to join us when free.

Pouring around 5 ish so works well.
Tasting sheets all done!

Thanks so much

Re: Quinta do Vesuvio Box Vertical, 13th FEB 2019

Food order done if a little late due to email issue. I will endeavour to work out how to print off the tasting sheets at work. Port - got it. Need to buy some filter paper. Aim to be there for 3pm to start in decanting, can anyone let me know if they will be able to get there a bit earlier to help. ...

Re: Thursday 23 May 2019: Victoria’s 200th

Can I please go on the list for this tasting.
Seperately for such an important event , I think a theme of British shippers is more appropriate.

Re: Are Vintage Port prices increasing

I agree with that Tom, there was a lot of Port coming to auction at the end of 2017, this really did not happen at the end of 2018. I was very disappointed how little became available.

Re: Are Vintage Port prices increasing

Has anyone got the prices from around 2006? This is when my Port buying started to accelerate and I think is a more useful guide, that is also a year or so since the time this website started. The real increase in prices in the older ports is as they have become rarer and in my view the price of old...

Re: 1991 Morgan

Just reread this tasting note. I fear the Morgan 91 is the definition of a port drunk to young. As a group we must have had over a Pipe at one point, I fear we don’t have much left! I personally have 18 bottles left at an in bond cost of £6.19 per bottle. This is 7.5% of my original purchase. A larg...

Re: Buying LBV

Yes I am wondering myself, perhaps it may be I am coming down with something! I do though think that 10 years ago I really did not think there was much point buying LBV as you could source VP at not much of a premium. That premium has now massively increased so the discount of LBV to vintage has inc...

Buying LBV

Now some of you who have known me for a few years may be surprised to hear that I am interested in buying some LBV ! The only LBV’s I have today are some wonderful old ones from the 80’s. The reduction of supply of new vintages to reflect the market at present which is clearly really starting to rec...
