Yes please. Depending on logistics, I may be a late (1930) arrival. I am trying to decide whether a VP or an older colheita should fall under the axe for the occasion.

Just noticed that Tuesday 16th was meant to be the date of the Warre 350 tasting. As such, will open something starting with a W.

Theme?

The theme is therefore something beginning with "W"

Warre 1970 (i.e. tercentenary vintage) for me then. A wine I first had with a wine buff classics master at the school wine society in early 1991. It was the star of that evening, at the beginning of its drinking window, but rich and warm. The classics master had obtained it from the choirmaster, who had won a case of it from the headmaster, in a bet that the choirmaster couldn't work the choir (of which I was a member) up to sing a particularly difficult Bach anthem. They were simpler times...

Was considering a 1997 but now thinking about a 1970.

[thinks for <5 seconds]

1970.

I may have to get creative. I generally don't like Warre's style, so have none on hand except for a 1964 Grande Reserve that's... reserved... for a later date. Oh, and a 1937 Grande Reserve that should be shared with multiple people in person because it's fabulous.

There's a decent chance that I have something bottled by Whitwham's, but finding it would require look at each bottle in turn by hand.

Last resort: Whatever looks tasty on Tuesday morning.

Mr Tawny - I have a solution: drink a Maynard's whilst standing on your head.

Does not compute. Warre is excellent and under-rated. Even by those who rate it ‘excellent’.

Bear in mind that any White port would qualify, as would anything bottled or branded by the Wine Society..
