Re: Latest buy

The Graham 1990 is absolutely superb, I have had a couple of bottles. Lucky you to get a large format bottle!
Congratulations!
I myself have just acquired as a latest buy a Warre 1920

Re: Favourite corkscrews

With old bottles I now just push the cork in decant and smash the bottle in a plastic bag with a hammer. Even using a bag to get out a fork can damage making it unreadable.
It also has the added advantage of being free😂

1920 at 100

Apologies if I missed it but does anyone fancy a small ( Maximum of 6 ) horizontal of 1920 @100.
Dates/admin to be decided if there is any interest. I would prefer to do it somewhere we could eat outside, perhaps a long lunch rather than the usual evening affair.

Re: Port for sale by retailer

The Bioma 2011 is superb! I had one a couple of weeks ago. The 2011 vintage really was superb. I went a bit mad at release and I don’t regret having this in Magnums!

Re: Latest buy

I have actually been reasonably active in the auction market this year. I don’t think there has been a huge amount of supply which together with some more active buying generally of wine when people have been stuck at home has pushed prices up. However I have managed to acquire some bottles I am ver...

Re: The wine shed - a concept, and some horrible maths..

Has anyone actually turned a shed into a wine storage facility?

It’s seems to be more complicated than I had hoped!

Re: Latest buy

It’s now back up to £39.50. For some reason they had a bit of a run on it! I think they only have around 11 bottles left so not sure why they put it back up.
I can report according to the cork it’s Secondum

Re: 1980 Horizontal, Tuesday 24th November, B&F

Very happy to adopt or if there is a particular port missing from the line up you want I can have a look for it. But sure budget runs to Nacional at current prices I am afraid .
