Wine Dinner - 2004 Bordeaux at 20 Years Old
Boot & Flogger, Green Room
Thursday 11th January 2024 - 1800 for 1830

Following on from some previous wine dinners (Ridge, Jaboulet, etc), have decided that it might be nice to have a look at 2004 Bordeaux when it's (approximately) 20 years old.

As such, the following wine & Port dinner is suggested:

Champagne
  • Krug NV, 160th Edition (2004 base)
  • Krug 2004
2004 Bordeaux
  • Grand Puy Lacoste (Pauillac)
  • Cos d'Estournel (Saint-Estephe)
  • Palmer (Margaux)
  • Ducru Beaucaillou (Saint-Julien)
  • Vieux Chateau Certan (Pomerol)
  • Pontet-Canet (Pauillac)
  • Lascombes (Margaux) [TC]
  • Sudiuraut (Sauternes) (hlv)
  • Climens (Sauternes) (hlv)
Port
  • Noval 1970 [JDAW]
  • Sandeman 1970 [IDJ]

Attendees:
  • NAC

Apologies, but I am not going to be able to make dinner on the 11th. I have been booked elsewhere by SWMBO.
Top Ports in 2022: Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port. I cried with joy.

2023: Fonseca 1966. There are not many better Ports, except a good bottle of Fonseca 1927. Wow!

Martin - apologies, a spare seat was already promised elsewhere. If anything changes I'll let you know.
