Hi Axel,

That sounds really great! You're really filling the gaps... Now we have almost have the last 40 years of Fonseca complete, what are we still missing and can we complete?
I think Fonseca 1980 and 2007?

Santé,
Joost

80 is one of the worst Vintage Ports I have ever had. We had an 80s Horizontal at AHBs house and I brought a 80 Fonseca Magnum and we had additionally one normal bottle and all were way below Fonseca standards. So there is no need to bring this.

But I think we are missing the two 05s and 04 as well, arent we? I do have all bottles here (04 Guimaraens, 05 Panascal and Guimaraens and 07). Is anyone really about to get them complete? Anyone willing to adopt?

No need for completeness. The serie is already great!

I have Guimaraens 05 available, if necessary...

Santé,
Joost

Indeed a pity Dries, I was looking forward to meeting you.

Axel, it would have been great to have a Netherlands / Germany final... :(

I'm accessing :tpf: from an iPhone, so would much rather not create the TN threads myself. Please could somebody else cope?

What a perfect combination of wonderful hosts, perfectly made food and a very good lineup of Port bottles. Thanks Ronnie and Joost for organising all this and inviting us.

Furthermore thanks as well for not bringing football to the table. I really enjoyed just tasting and chatting about the port. . :)

Julian: I will post a Review thread as soon as someone explains to me how to link the TNs to the Review thread. I just wrote an email to Alex K.

Thanks again for an amazing evening with the soccer world champions

Fabulous day, evening, night. Thank you to Joost and Sandra for being such wonderful hosts and providing the baby with the biggest hair I've ever seen - Noor's adorable.
Thanks to Ronald and Maartje for coming over and making it an event and providing the new Romeo of Utrecht, Luka. Thanks to Karen (spelling) and Chris for the fabulous food and thanks to Jeroen and the lovely Leontien, who I didn't even see this time, for providing me with a couch to sleep on.

Great to see everybody again. Food was excellent, Ports were great and the company absolutely outstanding.

Just before the WC final I have a bit of time to post from my iPod so I'll make it short. Thanks all for making it a great evening, and especially Joost and Sandra for their wonderful hospitality and Karen and Chris for the lovely food. Axel, thank you for providing the 08 samples and polos! I'll post my TN's when we get back from holiday mid August.

Experience has shown that if threads aren't made TNs are less likely to be posted. Please could somebody with a real computer cope?

Thank you.
No need for thanks, you can't be expected to do it for all tastings. I've sorted a spreadsheet that can be used with an SQL download for future reference. If somebody posts the TN threads I can knock the links out in about a minute (maybe two).
