Re: Summer offline in The Netherlands - 9 July 2010

A bit late perhaps, but if it is still possible, than Petra and myself would like to attend as well! We can provide 85, 95, 96, 97, 00 and / or 03. I'll let Ronnie pick his favourites, but I do think a '77 should be included... 88)

Oh - KillerB: that also means crashing at Marieke's won't be an option - but you are welcome to use the sleeping couch at my place in Amsterdam should L&J not be available...check the Roots for references...they'll explain... :? :shock: 88)

Ruddy, the label states that it was bottled by an English company (one that I have never heard of, BTW): 1970 was the last year that was possible. So yes, you do have 2 bottles of 70GC. Fill level on the left bottle is low though - what else was in the lot?

Decanting in the morning sounds good to me. Joost, will you be able to handle that, or should we bring our bottles ready decanted? I could drop off my bottles sometime this weekend or next week. On a sad note: Marieke won't be joining us - she booked an impromptu vacation to Cork, Ireland: she'll be...

I enjoyed the match, and was rather surprised by the lacklustre preformance of the Italians. We celebrated "our" victory with a double magnum of Zenato 2005 Valpolicalla Superiore (tasty stuff, by the way)!

Cheese KillerB? Hmmmm, how about big, bold and blue? Some of those '77 will be rather young, so should pair well with your famous Stilton... 88) I can also provide 6 identical decanters for the tasting, as well as a set of official IVDP-stemware. And happy to provide some nice wines for a pre-tastin...

Superb KillerB! 88)

LadyCage also offers her comfortable home (crawling distance from our venue) to host a Port-smelling guest, so no worries about sleeping arrangements. But should you prefer the hospitality of Leontien and Jeroen; no problem - and at least you've crashed there before... :)

I had forgotten about that most recent article by JS...would be very cool if we could indeed get the entire top-10! We are in for a treat!
Ruddy, I have a (trusted) source for a Sandeman '77 - not to expensive either: PM me for details, should you like to get it.

Marieke (aka LadyCage :) ) would also like to join us. So we've settled on 77VP as the theme? Nice! I can provide Dow, Niepoort and / or Taylor.
