Re: Thu 14th March 2019, Broadbent Port, at the B&F

Dates permitting, we might be joined by Bartholomew Broadbent himself. I have proposed a course of his Ports, and then a course of something older from our cellars. We have a Broadbent 1997 that we may contribute with if there is room for us at the table and if the date is suitable for us. Sten, Ste...

Re: Broadbent Port

In gathering information about a new Port name little seen this side of the Atlantic — Broadbent — a tasting was kindly offered. And accepted. One bottle of each of Bb00, Bb03, Bb07, Bb11 and Bb15 are to be sent to me.

When?

Would a Fonseca 1966 be welcome?

Re: Port House abbreviations

Suggestion: Lm = Quinta das Lamelas Fine by me. Also, I for Infantado doesn’t fit the general pattern of reserving the few single-letter names for the few ancient famous blends of large volume and fame. Should it be In or If or It or Id ? Unless there’s strong and quick dissent, it’s going to be In .

Perhaps this would be easier if the food orders were parameters in the placemats? The defaults could be called automatically with the option to override. Julian? We did have food in the placemats, but 7¾ years ago: see page 33 of 20101202_gbp15 . It was a faff, and scrapped. But there could be a Wo...
