Will we need a bottle of red with dinner? Ages ago Cynthia left in our care a Domaine René Engel Vosne-Romanée 2003; and before Christmas Ramos-Pinto sent me a Reserva Duas Quintas 2012. Should I bring one of these, and if so, which?

(This question also asked re the tasting on 31st March.)

I plan to bring a bottle of CPR and a bonus bottle thus we shouldn't be short.

With that taken elsewhere, the only available bottle for this tasting is the Reserva Duas Quintas 2012.

The Reserva Duas Quintas 2012 can be saved for another day. And placemats updated.

Sorry, chaps, I will have to withdraw due to work stuff.

See you next week.

Oh, no ’65. Health consequences! :-(

B&F called to zap DRT’s food order.

My recently-purchased bottle decanted 13:00. Smelling good.

Placemats printed.

Those consequences have another opportunity to be mitigated.
