Re: Warre's unfiltered lbv

Great idea. Have always enjoyed the older Warre LBVs which I’ve tasted. I think I have something in storage - will need to check.

Re: Experience with BI Wines

I got my 2 cases of 12. Pied with debit card on their site. The bottles themselves are in mint condition. However 11 of the 24 had lost the front label (They were with the shipment, but dislodged). Quite disappointing. The cases cost £480 each. What compensation would you feel was in order to corre...

Re: Tuesday 26th March 2019: DRT's Annual Elixir Tasting

If all goes to plan I’ll get to the B&F for about 5.30, and I could print as I need to swing by the office just before to pick up my bottle.

Re: Experience with BI Wines

This is the business that was previously known as Bordeaux Index. They've been around a long time - based on Hatton Garden in London, or at least they used to be. Attended a tasting at their place in 2014 and bought some wine from them in 2016. They do accept cards, or at least they did, so not sure...

Are doubles permitted? Think I may only have Warre and Noval available as things stand.
Actually I have realised I have some Croft at Seckfords. Put me down for Croft please.

I think w/c 10 Jun might also work. Depends when you're in Portugal.
Good spot, yes that's also an option. A few of us are in the Douro w/c 13 May.

Draft of the placemats added to first post.

Edit: improved. But still awaiting choices from CMAG and CPR.
Small edit needed - the G63 is saying Graham 60 on the circle. Did you intentionally omit initials on the circles ?

I have no ’65s. Would you be excessively offended by a Fonseca 1966?
Shabby stuff Julian - I think you should bring two to compensate!
Don’t have two. OK, I’ll choose something else: 2×G80; or 2×RP94?
F66 it is, then!

I have been asked to rephrase my earlier post. So here goes: I think you’ve got a cheek considering the time and effort members of this forum took in answering your query. Perhaps on reflection you might reconsider your remarks.
Your original post did bring a chuckle though :lol:
