1 x Vesuvio 1996

Purchased at Harvy Nichols - I was taking advantage of the American Express promotion (spend £25/receive £25 rebate) so the wine cost me not very much at all.

A case of Graham 1897 magnums from the cellars of La Tour d'Argent restaurant in Paris, shared with AHB

Price - a mere £9440 (inc BP)

- is this a new record for a case of port?

It's nowhere near the record for a case of port. On 23rd November 2012, Christie's in Hong Kong sold a case of Nacional 1963 for £25,098 (inc. bp).

Just 5 years before that, a case of Nacional 1963 sold at Christie's in New York for £1,167. Who says port prices haven't risen at the top end?
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)

I wonder if it was the same case; not a bad investment if so...

In preparation for Christmas, there was an accidental acquisition of some Dow's Trademark (some=36 bottles)
Christmas Day produced an "ooh" with a Morgan 66

Any offers around in the area? Christmas caused a bit of a hit on the stocks :roll:

January tends to be a lean month for supermarket offers due to the number of people kidding themselves into believing that a month without alcohol solves all of the world's problems :?

Tesco appear to be re-filling their boots with Croft LBV 2004 halves. Having purchased somewhere in the region of two gross, and having one gross left in my cellar, I am reluctant to purchase more for my own use. (reluctant = don't rule it out)

If those whom I see regularly want some could they please let me know and I will buy transportable amounts on your behalf when I see them on the shelf.

Just what I'm drinking right now! It is really rather tasty. I can recommend this if someone is looking for a reasonably casual house port or daily drinker.

I guess there is quite a lot of psace on Waitrose shelves at the moment, with all the meat products they have removed!
