Waitrose (or my nearest store, at least) are having something of a sale on at the moment with LBVs.

Warre 2004 (rooted behind the 2007s..!) £18 :)
A great price for either vintage - I love these with anything up to 40 years of bottle age on them.

Great choice - a great wine. I have a Warre 1977 that I am eyeing for Christmas.

Cases of Sandeman 1977 and 1994. Went to an auction to bid on Dow’s 1966 and Warre’s 1970 but these came up first and no one was interested so couldn’t resist. Other two lots went for silly money!

Two very nice Ports which don't have the secondary market profile of D66 or W70. You should enjoy the Sandeman.

1937 Feurerheerd Coleheita (bottled for the Italian market, so named "Lenteiro". Bottled in 1973 (my birthyear, that's why I went for it).

Got it at an online auction. When I received the bottle today, I was surprised because of the (good) condition of the capsule. It was wrapped in some foil/tape so maybe that's the reason of the good condition the capsule is in.

And got 4 halves of Quevedo Colheita 2000 (bottled 2015) at a very good price, from supermarkt supermarket (Jumbo, die those wij are in The Netherlands)

Two half bottles of Croft (possibly 1960) from a charity sale at Corney & Barrow.
One low shoulder & one base of neck.
Already opened the low shoulder bottle & it was still pretty good.

That’s an excellent purchase. I love half bottles of mature Port.

Nominally cost £10 each, so probably a bargain.
