Re: 1977's - Tue 11th June 2024

I agree with Phil‘s suggestion regarding which bottles to include or exclude.

Re: 1977's - Tue 11th June 2024

Crikey, gird the loins for this tasting, as we are fast approaching the equivalent of two dozen bottles! And talking of tastings within tastings, if we had the Ni g ((which sadly I do not), then we would have another one…

Re: 1977's - Tue 11th June 2024

Has Martin done his spreadsheet wizardry and allocated who is bringing what? Yes the first post has been updated However I am not sure the placemats fully reflect this as there is a QH on the placemats but not on the bottle list and Alex is due to due to bring 'M' but this is not on the placemats Y...

Re: May 23rd, 2024 - LBV - The Young Turks

Tom, given the few drop outs we've had would it be ok to boost the numbers? I have a friend or two who aren't members here who may well be very interested in joining us for this event. Absolutely - new faces very welcome Err…shouldn’t we go to the reserve list firstly-or has this been exhausted?

Re: Graham, Tue 14 May 2024

A great night and perhaps the most consistently good vertical I have attended. Two bottles – the 63 and 70 were below par but on the other hand the 75 and 83 were the two best examples of these wines that I have drunk. The 97 is also going in the right direction.

Re: Thursday 11th April - Decanting Experiment plus some drinkers

I was one of the two evening attendees (Ben being the other) to whom Harry refers, above. Arrived to find all in good spirits, although some perhaps having a warmer alcoholic glow than others! Given the late arrival, difficult to pass too much judgment on the experiment, although I did marginally pr...

You are of course correct, a case of more haste less speed;I should have looked more closely at the date the topic originated!
