Just received an email for this Bohórquez offer:
I’ve almost bought this Ribera del Duero a couple of times but for one reason or another have held off. This is at least a sort of EP offer and at £80 for case of 6 making it £13.33 a bottle in bond but £18.68 tax paid, compared to the current 2009 price of £20 per bottle, it is, unlike most French EPs these days, at least at some discount.
Any thoughts? Is it worth my putting in a quick order of the '09 to try it?
As I say it’s a considerable markdown but on the other hand I like to limit the amount of wines that I buy more than a couple of. Simply because, as I’ve mentioned before, I only drink about 60 bottles a year. So 10 EP orders of 6 bottle cases represents my entire year’s drinking and only choosing between 10 different wines would get a trifle tedious!
