Decision needed in time for placemats.
I will print on Monday.

JDAW - could you send the food order to the B&F please?
BN55 it is then... Looking forward to Wednesday.

I expect BN55 will be very nice indeed if it follows the path of the previous BN bottles I have tasted!

I would assume that Simon isn't eating.

Having discovered my proposed GC70 is actually Oporto-bottled, I can now offer a Warre '63 instead. Julian - apologies for the placemat hassles and threads already created!

Awaiting word from Alex. If not printed, easily updated.

Yes me too. I could bring both the W63 and the GC70, but permission required from the master.

I am hereby: mounting a temporary coup; declaring myself Master of All I Can Behold; accepting your utterly sensible suggestion; and then resigning Mastership in favour of Alex.

Of course, Alex will over-rule, in which case it could appear as a ‘side drink’ not officially part of the tasting.

Yes, I’m thirsty.

Sirs (and Madam)

I have encountered a small issue with the BN55 - in that I could not find it!

Can I respectfully offer another 55 - A Mackenzie bottled by J Harvey and Sons Bristol. Sorry!!!

I am looking forward to this evening - I may be a little late if todays auction overruns. If this is the case I will pass my bottle to Dia to bring in.

It's reassuring in my mind to have sufficient port to make locating bottles difficult :D :D

Aiming to get to the B&F for about 5.20pm, if anyone arriving a bit early, see you there.
