The book has a chapter Vintage Reviews, in which I wrote, p601,
1991s are junior to the 1992s. Insufficiently tasted to say more.

In 2019 George organised an excellent tasting of 1991s, after which any opinion was less uninformed.

I intend to arrange a 1992 horizontal.
We need a 1992 horizontal, and the chosen date is Tuesday 12th May 2020.

What 1992s do likely attendees have? I have none, so need to adopt. Others might be in the same position. Please list which 1992s you’d be willing to make available.

Hi Tom,

Happy the SWC 92 to be opened on this occasion. If we ever come round to try the 91 along side I should find another bt. Otherwise I am fairly light on 92s. Not sur but some Bonfim and Niepoort come to mind.

Regards

Mike is the fourteenth. Likely as not a small number of reserves would get promoted, so a reserve list has been started.

Please could those who haven’t post lists of bottles.

Reserves:
It’s not impossible that a fourth or later reserve would be promoted, so the reserve list will be allowed to grow further. But it is not probable: further reserves should not decline a hot date for that evening.
