Quinta do Noval - Vertical tasting in Germany, 17 Feb 2018

Post by Axel P » 11:57 Thu 30 Nov 2017

17. Feb in Leverkusen, Germany

Pretty much everything from 1955 and younger, including some NNs and hopefully Noval's enologist Carlos Agrellos.

PM me if you are interested.

That's a bold move for such a young wine.

But you have to drink it now and then to figure that this is bold.

For me the 11 NN could be the worthy successor of the 63 and it will be fantastic to see this maturing over the next decades.

Best

Send me a list of names for the placemats.

Draft of which at www.jdawiseman.com/2018/20180217_Noval_Leverkusen.pdf, doubtless with many errors (including the fact that the twenty-one bottles will be drunk by the only attendee).
