Quinta de la Rosa LBV and Vintage - cancelled

Post by forest26 »

Event cancelled - cannot get enough numbers for May 10


As discussed at the recent online QdlR tasting - LBV and Vintage
Live tasting @ B&F Time TBC (but suggest an early start as there are a lot of wines to taste) - Venue confirmed
Sophia has confirmed


I have the following already set aside - it will be easiest for me to supply (in exchange for a donation to charity). There are a few gaps which I might be able to resolve with Sophia.

Given the large number of bottles - I suggest that the placemats are reserved for older vintages and those years with equivalent LBV's. The more recent vintages could be free-pour on a separate table.

Bottles:
  1. 1988 Vintage
  2. 1990 Vintage
  3. 1991 Vintage
  4. 1992 Vintage
  5. 1994 Vintage
  6. 1995 Vintage
  7. 1996 Vintage
  8. 1997 Vintage
  9. 1999 Vintage
  10. 2003 Vintage
  11. 2004 Vintage
  12. 2009 Vintage
  13. 2011 Waitrose Vintage
  14. 2014 Vintage
  15. 2015 Vintage
  16. 2016 Vintage
  17. 2017 Vintage
  18. 2018 Vintage
  19. 1990 LBV
  20. 1992 LBV
  21. 1994 LBV
  22. 1995 LBV
  23. 1999 LBV
  24. 2011 LBV (Mag)

I will need to confirm, but yes please, count me in.
I have a bottle of the 2011 VP that was made for Waitrose I would be happy to contribute. I believe it was the main blend rather than a Wine buyer selection, but Sophia can confirm this.

Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.

That judicial review form that kept me in the office until midnight has a lot to answer for now. Please put me on the reserve list (assuming it to be a tasting for 14).

Yes please! I'm intrigued based on the LBV I tried on the recent tasting.

There were three days with a flurry of posts, since when five months of silence.

• Is this likely to happen?
• Tony: do you have all the bottles?
• Did you book the Red Room? [I phoned; no you didn’t; I have; 16:00 on Thu 8th July.]
• Is everybody still planning to attend? (If not, doubtless waitlisters would like to be advanced.)
• Does Sophia still have a guest? Who?

Who can print onto A2 (current draft of the placemats)?

I need to confirm with Sophia as this was planned some time ago and I wanted to wait for restrictions to end before organising

I have most bottles put aside already

Thanks for booking the room
