Recently Alex B. and I tasted GM86 and GM87. We both loved the GM86. Re the GM87, there was disagreement, I thinking it quite junior, Alex preferring it.

This suggests a theme for a tasting: one or two bottles with a Disagreement or a Controversy or a Misunderstanding.

My misunderstandings in respect of Port often lead to disagreements or controversies. This sounds like the tasting for me!

If it involves tasting the GM86 v. GM87 I'm available! I still recall the debate about these two at the Malvedos vertical in 2010. I think both were (or very close to) podium finishes that night.

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.

If anyone has a bottle of Croft 1869 it should appear at this tasting. I've searched my wine fridge but all of my Croft 1869 appears to have been stolen.

Is this likely to go ahead on 8th Nov?

Alas, I will neither be in London on 08 Nov 2022, nor do I possess both GM86 and GM87.

Both can be fixed, though the latter is considerably more likely.

I would struggle to make this after the tasting of TTF the week before, so I will need to drop out unfortunately.
