It’s normal, They’re all filled like that. Even the 20 yr Graham’s Jeroboams are filled the same.
Worth a grumble though - it doesn't look very good..
I have grumbled to C&B and they've gone away to speak to Symingtons.
I agree - does look a bit rubbish.

Re: Latest buy

Impressive bottle, although the fill level looks really mean.. I'd wondered about this as well. Think I'll get C&B to ask Symingtons for an opinion. It’s normal, They’re all filled like that.

Wine-Searcher.com Photos

Some time ago I posted a TN for Churchill's Fojo 86 , which included some photos. Recently spotted this on Wine-Searcher . The image being used is clearly from one of my photos. Whilst I don't have a problem with this (in general), it's been overlaid with their text (as if to show ownership), and th...

Re: Port for sale by retailer

Corney & Barrow website currently has 1998 Fonseca Guimaraens for £25.72 per bottle retail. Potentially a good cellar defender.

UPDATE - actually 2004, not 1998.

No details yet for QdlR on the 14th? They might be cutting it fine to have time to sell "tickets" and ensure the wines are delivered in time unless they start soon... I’ve only bought a tasting pack for one previous virtual tasting from them, but it all seemed very much at the last minute, although...

Taylor 1964 Single Harvest - Wanted!

Does anyone have a couple of bottles of the Taylor 1964 Single Harvest that they'd be interested in disposing of?

Ideally would like to swap for a couple of bottles of one of the other vintages, but would purchase if required.

Any takers?

Yes, there will be wines available but they’ve not been announced yet. Suspect it’ll be a few days until they are. Will update when I know.

Rare Riojas

Thought I’d share this as suspect will be of interest to some viewers...

Laithwaites / Sunday Times Wine Club currently have an offer of rare Riojas which includes Paternina Gran Reserva 1964, and some other interesting wines from 70s and 80s.

I think Harry is a potential, but if it's only 3/4 of us then I'll just book a normal table.
