Emergency-28 January 2020

I am in town for a late afternoon meeting and given that my train fare is therefore paid, was wondering whether there is any thirst for a blinded bring a bottle tasting at the B&F this night (appreciating the fact that there is another tasting the following week)?

Re: Y2K Tasting Tuesday 17th March

Have now checked and as suspected, don't currently have too much 2000-only Ni, V, G and (rather oddly) RCV and Dalva.

Re: Emergency, Monday 30th December 2019

No, sorry, it is my daughter's birthday at which I will be helping to chaperone ten 5 and 6 year olds to the pantomime at which I am reliably informed that I will be the adult stooge called out from the audience!

Re: Festive Drinking

Around at some friends for lunch and I have been entrusted with the wine and Port. Nothing to OTT- a magnum of Rioja gran reserva 2005 followed by Ck70 and a 40yr Pocas tawny.

Re: Ideas for tastings

I quite fancy (and I think that it has been mentioned before) a BBR vertical and I wonder if I may be able to get someone from the family to attend if I do.

Always wanted to do a SW vertical as well although conscious of the scarcity of older bottles.

Re: Thur 21st November 2019 - Rebello Valente vertical

Draft of the food order . Will be submitted on Monday, please advise of any changes required before then. n.b. I note that the current menu has moved on, and no longer has ribeye (for which I will state that substitution with Sirloin is fine if needed), and neither the Goats' cheese salad nor truff...

Re: Tom’s Birthday 1960 Horizontal, Tue 02 June 2020

Personally, given that it's 60 @ 60 @ 60 and that there are bound to be one or two faulty bottles, I think we should go for the maximum number of bottles that glasses space affords ie 21. BTW, where's the NN (I see it was present last time around)?

I have Cr, N, RV, D and Mz (I believe).

Re: Port for sale by retailer

For those that have not already filled their racks, there has been some limited restocking of the M&S 2007. I was trudging home along Oxford Street this evening, exhausted after a dispiriting meeting in the West End, and thought I would pop into the Pantheon store again just in case. I was not so e...

At my local Sainsbury's all Port is full price :(
Yes, odd that- it appears to be very localised as the GM was at the full price at two other stores.

Re: Port for sale by retailer

The emissaries are beginning to report back; two bottles of the Warre (perhaps the last of the species in the South) have been located and collected in Poole. I fear they all maybe EW (extinct in the wild) very shortly.

Re: Port for sale by retailer

Have sent out emissaries (aka work colleagues) to scour the interior and to not return until they are successful!

On a different note Sainsbury’s have the 2003 TTD at £12 and the GM2005 at £16.80-both ‘to clear ‘.
