Re: 1972 Rebello Valente

This for me was the surprise of the night, and by far the best 72 I have had the pleasure to taste. This was rich and sweet with a great mouth feel, very satisfying.

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

There will be fourteen of us, likely all full-capacity drinkers, and 14 × 1¼ = 17½. Table space limits us to 1×A3 + 1×A4, so to about 15 + 6 = 21 glasses. Would it be wrong to have between 18 and 20? So which shippers shall we drop from my list? Losing Messias, RCV and Sibio would leave 18 Would yo...

Re: Informal pre-Christmas tasting

Wow, I stepped away from this thread and it looks like we already have a plan! I can happily say I'd be available on the 17th and love the "less than £25" theme. All we need now is the venue. Unless other options being considered suggest calling B&F asap to see if they have room as they will be ver...

1987 Taylor Vargellas

Drunk at the B&F on the 26th Sep. This was delicious with a great freshness and precision that I don't often associate with the 80's. Good balance and mouth feel with lots of pepper, drinking beautifully now based on this bottle but will get better.

MPM guessed an Gm 87 - which was not far off
