Slightly different event online from 67 Pall Mall tomorrow at 1800 - a wine quiz hosted by Ronan Sayburn MS.

Have taken part in previous "live" quizzes and were most enjoyable.

I opened a bottle of Samuel Billaud Les Grands Terroirs Les Preuses Chablis Grand Cru 2015. It went superbly with the barbecued turbot we had for dinner that night, landed by a Poole fisherman that morning.

As someone who h as been locked up for 2 months in New York in heavy quarantine, I've sorted my cellar by cellar tracker and decided a 96 A. Rousseau Gevrey Chambertin was called for.

But I've seen my fellow wine lovers done better. I truly hope everyone is at least opening that nice bottle to enjoy life as it was meant.

Side note, having had a few friends suffer from covid-19 I really hope to join you everybody on the other side of the atlantic sooner rather than later.
