Only curious about the Guigal. It is a drag to have to drink all this mediocre wine isn't it.

By the end of the evening it was feeling like hard work and not a particularly enjoyable experience. I consoled myself with a duck confit washed down by a glass of Pol Roger NV and a glass of Graham 10yo tawny for dessert.

I'll post the TN for the Guigal.

Pol Roger 2004 note for me please. They had run out at Waitrose when I went in to get a couple with the 25% off, I shall try again next time around but I have a couple already and would be interested in your thoughts.
