To comply with the theme I will need to bring a back up bottle as the main one I have in mind may be stunning... but there is a distinct risk it may not, and I don't want to provide bad juice whilst enjoying other fine bottles.

Edit: the main bottle is for Charles

Would anyone mind if I took a 'PNV' (ie 'Presumed Non Vintage') approach? I have a bottle that falls into this category which I believe I know what it is but my cellar records are less than perfect...

Placemats updated.

Ten is too many for USLegal, so now two sides of A4. Which relieves me of printing duties — volunteers please.

Erk! That's nine bottles between 6 of us and I have a 9am meeting on Thursday morning in London. I think (a) I need to do a JDAW and drink 9 pints of water before we start and (b) I need to find a room to stay in London overnight.

Apologies, but I won't be able to print as I will be away from the office all day.

It’s OK. Relax. In an emergency we could buy another from the B&F.

'For JDAW' and 'For AHB' decanted at 6.15 and returned to bottles with t-stoppers. All is good.

Printing also now done. Any further changes will have to be manually dealt with.

I decanted my two half bottles at approximately 07h30.
