Re: Non Festive Drinking

After two weeks of all-inclusive in Andalusia, where the choice of wine was red/rose/white and delivered via a tap, thought I'd open something nice on return to home... Domaine de la Vougeraie, Bonnes Mares Grand Cru, 2002. One of twelve bottles obtained en primeur from Laithwaites in 2004 (for sig...

Re: Latest buy

Here is a pic of the Old and ‘New’ Ck77. Interestingly there is no ‘not for commercial use’ on the Ck74 label earlier in the thread, but there is on the bottom of the older bottle shown here. Also, I seem to remember that Tom brought an undeclared Ck66 to the ‘66 Horizontal 6 years ago or so. A bott...

Re: Monday 25th July - Bring a Port from 1960–1970

Julian - can we incorporate onto the tasting mat or the tasting notes sheet each person's food order? Then each person will know what they ordered and I won't need to shout at everyone to remind them. Such a simple idea… astonishing it has not been thought of before in the hundreds of sittings the ...

This is not a drill. Graham's Crusted (think it's 2013) for £10/bottle or £9 with subscribe and save on amazon. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01H0H0ULY?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&tag=pepperugc03-21&ascsubtag=2369730086 If you can’t get the Amazon deal… Sainsbury’s have it on offer again for the 201...

Re: 1997s, B&F, Tue 24 May 2022

I agree that our 6pt system (noting that in addition to 3-2-1 we allow assignment of points any way you like subject to max 3pt for any one wine, and minimum resolution of half-points) works well to provide an indication of the generally preferred wine; and indeed, that is what we are asking it to ...

Re: 2020 Declarations

The 2020 Bonfim is destined exclusively for the Danish Market I think something similar happened with the 1972 vintage with the General Dow release being widely available but the Bonfim just Scandinavia and that possibly being just Denmark. Maybe Julian’s Second edition will be able to confirm thes...

Re: Announcement topic ‘Information About Port’

I think it is useful so would vote to keep. I do wonder if it could be ‘rolled’ into the press releases and announcements thread as an all encompassing reference thread. This could also have the threads as to which shippers/producers have declared each year and lots of other oddities such as cleanin...

No (to both - though I like Simon's broad thinking!). The answer is not unrelated to port.

Re: Latest buy

I think the green box is the old packaging for the Graham Crusted. I seem to remember being in Booth’s many years ago and buying Graham 2002 Crusted in those green boxes. I think the old green box was in use right up until the 2013 Crusted release in the last 2 years. which must have a split run to...
