Am now going to start sending...

Re: 1967s, at the B&F, Thu 08 June 2017

Thank you Tony for arranging a fantastic tasting and everyone who contributed and assisted in making this happen. I liked the '67 Ports and agree with JDAW above, light and well balanced with lots of candy aromas. From the declared bunch, Quinta Do Noval was a favourite, followed by Sandeman and las...

No “chicken supreme” on menu. You have been ordered “Grilled free-range chicken breast with slow braised chorizo and red peppers”.
That should be fine, many thanks.
