Our youngest went to University last autumn. Three visits in five months persuaded us to evict him from his bedroom and turn it into a library/office.

Hi

I have seen the term Cuvée used on old bottles of Tawny/colheita destined for the French market. I believe in this case cuvee refers to 'barrel'.

Re: Upgrade of Forum Software

From that discussion it seems that it previously worked by mistake (or at least unwittingly) and the new style of auto linkages means that the loophole has been closed.

Re: Port bottle leaked? Still drinkable?

On a side note, i wonder if its normal or usual to be able to push a cork so easily inside a bottle with barely no strenght?? This is not normal, but not entirely unusual. If you open enough bottles of old wine this will happen periodically. Sometimes the wine is fine, sometimes it is good or great...

I see that Tony has lots of availability, some of which duplicate bottles that are being brought by people contributing two.

Is there a solution where Tony supplies a different bottle and I bring my F85?
