@forest26 - on the list
@nac - first reserve, but statistically extremely likely to be promoted idc - so I would be most grateful if you could diarise and reserve a bottle of CkC for us

It is with great regret that i'm going to have to withdraw from this tasting. Work commitments prevent my attendance. Have a great evening!

I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to make the 9th Dec in London, so please open up my space to a reserve; thanks.

I am afraid I will no longer be able to make this tasting. I hope Tom will be able to join you and have a bottle that will replace de mine.
I look forward to reading the notes on this interesting vintage comparison.

Apologies, I haven’t been attentive to this.

Draft of placemats now made. Doubtless corrections to follow.

Problem: I need to adopt, and can’t afford the Nacional. Please, does anybody have something I could adopt that isn’t already being brought (so not D, G, W, V, SW, GC, CkC, Mg, TV, FG, Cr, Rs, nor Ni)?

The only adoptee I can offer to add to the list (without broaching an owc) is the Noval. This went through a really awkward phase, but my most recent notes (10/13, 8/16, 10/17) show a clear pattern of improvement
