Not Tejo nor Massandra.

It's from Europe.

haha - you're supposed to be sitting this out! It's not English.

So to summarise, it is a well-known name, from Europe. Not English or French.

So it's not Chambertin (which technically is an appellation rather than a producer).

The beautiful people of London have been fluttering their eyelashes at me optimistically. Being married, of course I didn’t notice.
