Thursday, January 2nd, London, "Bring a bottle to share"

Post by WS1 »

DrDirk will be in London on Thursday January 2nd and would like to have some port in good company. If the Bunghole is open it will be the likely venue for this gathering. Start time ~6:00 PM. Please let me know if anyone happens to be around London and would care to meet to beat the New Year Blues...

Theme is "Bring a bt to share"

regards

Sounds good, and I should be free that night.

Enjoy the first offline of 2014, sorry I won't be there with you.
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.

WPS: should I bring your six-pack of O07 LBV ¾L? Actually, I will, unless you instruct to the contrary.

Not the start to the year that we might have expected, but each to their own taste.

O07 I believe is Offley 2007 LBV - which is a brilliant LBV

You have no idea how relieved we are to read that explanation.
