Re: Offline 3rd July B&F Red Room - Bring a bottle to share (sighted)

25,000 UK out of UK led European coalition of 118,000 (when the 50,000 Prussians turned up) against 73,000 French. I've even read argued it was a German victory. :)

Re: 1991/92 Double Horizontal

I'm also keen on the majors, with some that declared both. Might perhaps be interesting, if we can, to have both Taylor Vargellas 91 and Terra Feita 91.

Real fake wine.

Replica wine which is lab designed to alter cheaper wine (through the use of additives and blending) to taste very similar to more expensive big brand wine. Hmm.

The T48 was outstanding, with the F48 not far behind. The Mz58 very good and considerably better than I expected, a hous...

Re: 1994; Where's the value?

Just to keep in mind when buying 1994: this is a year that is not at all, as you might think, generally good. The best producers perform very well, but there are a lot of producers that do not deliver good quality. Top 10 or so are good, the rest is not, in my experience. Which have you found good,...
