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 supermarket (Jumbo, for those whoare 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.

A couple of weeks ago I bought some halves following a tasting note from AHB.

2000 Fortnum & Mason x 6

Consuming one reminded me of how useful I find halves - especially as cellar defenders. So today I ordered, from FWW, 24 halves of SQVP which I can reasonably expect to be drinking now.

2001 Graham Quinta dos Malvedos x 6
2001 Fonseca Quinta do Panascal x 6
1998 Taylor Quinta do Vargellas x 6
1996 Taylor Quinta do Vargellas x 6

1970 Fonseca x 6
1970 Croft x 12
1963 Noval x 11

Potentially looking to dispose of a few bottles of the Croft & Noval. If interested PM me.

3 x Cr91, 1 x Tv91, 1 x Rs91 i.e. the winners from the recent 1991 tasting. I already have a little Cr91, so this small additional selection will allow me to drink a decent 1991 every year until such time as (I suspect) they are going to have run out of steam.

Will probably dispose of some of the Warre & Croft. I've you're interested PM me.

I recently couldn't turn down the chance to buy three bottles of Fortnum & Mason 2003 Vintage Port (by Niepoort) at a price of £24.75 per bottle, inclusive of VAT. I'm hoping this is the same blend as the standard Niepoort 2003.

It’s now back up to £39.50. For some reason they had a bit of a run on it! I think they only have around 11 bottles left so not sure why they put it back up.
I can report according to the cork it’s Secondum
