75@40

Post by uncle tom » 09:01 Wed 11 Jun 2014

Date: 2015 TBA

Venue: London, probably TBH

I have eleven '75s in stock, but am missing the following:
  • Andresen;
  • Barros;
  • Butler Nephew;
  • Cálem;
  • Ferreira;
  • Gonzalez Byass;
  • Kopke;
  • Krohn;
  • Martinez;
  • Niepoort;
  • Noval Nacional;
  • Offley;
  • Poças;
  • Quarles Harris;
  • Ramos Pinto;
  • Rebello Valente;
  • Sandeman.
Could people let me know if they have any of them. I am particularly keen to source the bolded shippers, ex cellars if necessary.

I have no '75s at all.
If you do find a source for the Mz75 please let me know, as we still want one for the Mz vertical in November; Wine searcher currently only lists a single bottle.

I only have one 1975 but it is part of a vertical so isn't available for a 1975 horizontal.

I'm also planning a 1985 horizontal for next year and have 23 bottles on hand with a 24th committed. I expect to have ~30 bottles once we're done.

I own no 75 VPs, but some on your list are available locally (e.g., http://www.underwoodwines.co.uk/P7765.a ... nesearcher, http://www.underwoodwines.co.uk/P7312.a ... nesearcher)

good hunting.

Thanks, however that particular merchant is not someone I would source from..

I'll check but I believe that I have an Offley which was the 'makeweight' in an auction. Couldn't vouch for its provenance however.
