Can we talk about Christmas [2018] yet?



I tried the Exhibition Crozes, it was very good. Thought I would try this, too. Will probably keep it in the least accessible rack for now.


I have that same vintage of both at home and, as I say, plan to compare them side by side and blind. So should be interesting. But must wait until I get home in December.

… and then I’ll have two open bottles to finish :open_mouth::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::rofl:


I just inadvertently placed an order for two white wines… wanted to wait with delivery (and payment) till January, but realised that there are only 7 bottles (6 now) of the Meursault left…

I was browsing the Burgundy on offer and found this well rated Meursault that is supposedly coming into its drinking window. Does shout Christmas… I had my eye on the CB previously and was happy to find that these two bottles allow for “free” delivery.

If only I could do that, having spent half a day up a ladder trying to put a 2000 LED string on my Cedar tree at the entrance to create a lit archway,! I had to concede defeat before I hung myself from one of the branches and lit up.
So the safer option in the front of the house was choosen but I am the odd one out in the street now as almost everone else has a roadside display but our house is set back, the wife is not impressed and I get the impression the sight of me hanging and lit up would have been the prefered option.


It’s a Christmas version of the Manneken Pis methinks!


Tesco, £20, no brainer!!:wink::grinning:


Appears offer extended to 1/1/19 also…

(For comparison is £32 via Amazon)


No Tesco near me @Taffy-on-Tour. But £23 in Sainsbury’s. Still a bargain :+1:t2:


I got 2 bottles delivered for £1 a few weeks ago, a proper bargain.:grinning:
