Re: Tue 25 June 2019 - 2017 Vintage Ports

Thank you for your kind words... there will indeed be some celebrating but probably of the tawny variety due to transit and not a full celebration until I have worked out poached and scrambled eggs!

Re: Tue 25 June 2019 - 2017 Vintage Ports

I am both delighted and disappointed to have to withdraw from this one. The 2016 version of this was a wonderful tasting and I am gutted to no be able to compare with the 2017s, particularly with the back to back nature of the vintage declarations. But, I am delighted because we finally managed to e...

I had hoped beyond hope to try and attend this event at the last minute, but alas it is not to be. I hope the bottles are fine and you have a great evening.

Or a jeroboam of the Graham’s 1982 single harvest which should be enough to sate our thirst!

Re: Wed 1st May 2019, Broadbent Port, at the B&F

Is it a bottle that went missing from the cellar years ago... I can’t remember what it was but I think a 55 of some sort? Or a NN63 Mr Davy wanted us to enjoy?

Re: Which VPs will last 100 years?

I thought I would ‘bump’ this thread... not so much to reignite the Nacional element but the original premise of Port that would be enjoyable throughout a century of drinking. I think wines that last a century will have many peaks throughout that time that will showcase the various elements of fruit...

Re: Wed 1st May 2019, Broadbent Port, at the B&F

I hope to be there at about 17.30 following a Zac handover. I had hoped to be earlier to be able to help set up, but if there are last minute duties I should be there to assist.

Re: Warre's unfiltered lbv

I think I have the 2003, 2004 and 2007 like everyone else no doubt... in the off chance I can make it I have those. Wonderful idea though.

Re: Wed 1st May 2019, Broadbent Port, at the B&F

I would like to still come along, but until I move to Dorset cash flow is all tied up, so I would need to not have the dinner and just contribute to service. If that is okay, then I could offer a Niepoort 2005 as a comparison bottle or find something older if prefered. If you would rather have the s...

Re: 2017 Vintage Ports

Wonderful idea.
W/c 11 Nov would be my vote. Would give us plenty of time to source the bottles and have them delivered to the B&F.

I am hoping that I will have had the summer season at the B&B and able to come to London for a few days for some port so would like to be added if possible please.

Re: Tuesday 26th March 2019: DRT's Annual Elixir Tasting

Life is such an ever changing complication at the moment. I would love to be there to celebrate another fine year for DRT but it seems unlikely that will be possible. Could I please go on a reserve list for now just in case I manage to get a pass.

Re: Wed 20th Feb 2019, Emergency

I am guessing that this emergency has been postponed. I might make it for a glass or two/three if it does go ahead but unlikely for a full tasting as I am out during the day. I hope your M-i-L has a good evening whether it be the B&F or not.

Re: Thu 3rd Jan 2019, Emergency

I am afraid I am sorry too. Unless anyone can volunteer to look after Zac, I can not make it tomorrow either. Very disappointed as I always try to make a point of a wet January. I hope you enjoy some fine juice.
