Happy with the 'Anything but vintage' theme and have some brown sticky stuff, a bit of crusted and one or two LBVs that could be deployed.

Also an LBV of some antiquity - probably..

I have a Warre 62 LBV that is becoming a bit sticky and so I think I'll bring that (will replace if it looks to have 'failed').

How interesting, a 1962 horizontal...

Hi
I guess it is for me to bring the sticky stuff.
I have a bottle of 1934 Dalva tawny - it is a 1970's Bottling. I am curious to learn how older bottlings vary over time. I will bring a reserve bottle of something else bottled more recently - just in case!

I may be a little late arriving on Wednesday.

Let me guess... - dumpy bottle with a splayed mouth, paper thin red wax capsule, splitting and peeling away, covering a tapered cork..

I like the look of those bottles, though sadly don't own any. The last I tasted was courtesy of Wolfgang, I think (perhaps) in 2012. Unfortunately I am not in a position to be able to join you next week, much as I wish I could. Have an excellent evening.

Absolutely.

I can print the placemats on Monday, but if there are any changes after Monday pm which need to be reflected in the placemats someone else will need to print the revised version.

Fantastic - many thanks Alex. I'll likely be in the office on Wednesday afternoon so I can pick up any late printing required.

Just returned from hols and yes I am thirsty thus this works a treat.

I will bring a 1977 Quinta do Infantado Colheita;

This was bottled in 1986 thus any thoughts on when to open / decant?

I have a guest for Weds if that's ok? It's Alun (AJH-lefty), who's attended before. Will advise what he's bringing as soon as I can but likely to be a colheita.

Charles, likely to be a bit musty if my experience of other such bottles is anything to go by and so suggest opening a few hours beforehand to give time for the mustiness to blow away.

Oh and incidentally, my W62 LBV was bottled in 66.

Absolutely fine to bring Alun. Delighted he and Charles can join us.

Can someone else print the latest set of placemats please?

Gentlemen, with great regret, I will have to bail out of Wednesday.
I was banking on leaving work early to catch the train but this is no longer possible. :(
Have a great evening and I look forward to catching up with you soon.

Has the room been booked? Glasses requested? Food order arranged?

The room has been booked but nothing else has been done to help our hosts.

If you have the time to help out - even if only booking glasses - please do.

I can confirm that Alun is bringing a 1978 Barros Colheita (bottled in 2011 I believe).
