Let’s see if we can tick off all the villages :wine_glass:

Would Aligote count…? :nerd_face:

A post was merged into an existing topic: NEW #TWSTaste virtual tasting - Rioja ‘vertical’, Thursday 26th March, 8-9pm

Not too bothered what is chosen. Just looking forward to ending “dry4Lent”. Never appreciated how long Lent lasts.

What do we have at home? Lots of claret! Plenty of German white wine, some white burgundy, Languedoc reds. Then assorted stuff (red, white and rose) from here, there and everywhere. Thumbs up for anything that includes red Bordeaux from here :wine_glass:

I’m with you on red Bordeaux; only problem would be what to open!

Also red Rhone; I do have a Cote Rotie that needs drinking sometime soon.

Another possibility I mentioned in another thread; a Musar vertical might be a lot of fun. Or maybe, to be a little looser, a Lebanon tasting.

Another possibility might be a “bring your favourite sub tenner” wine tasting. We all might pick up some great VFM tips.

E sure to let it play and read the words - extremely relevant for your circumstances

I would love a Beaujolais feast, too, at some point! :heart_eyes:

I am 100% here for this!

… or we could dedicate one to the dreaded Cabernet Sauvignon…

I’m in the middle of a stock-take. I am pretty sure I have no Cab Sav in at all!

The Musar/Lebanon tasting defiantly sounds like a good idea!

I reckon we should see if we can rustle up a Thalabert vertical.

But not until @tom’s feeling more human - wouldn’t want him to miss out! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I think that might be a bit too niche and exclude a lot of us. A Crozes-Hermitage or Northern Rhône tasting would be a good shout though

Yes, I’d be up for that.

Though I have got Thalabert, it’s a 2013 in a half bottle and I think it will still be a little young.

You suggest this after I’ve drunk the only Northern Rhone I have in!

(still no regrets, drank it on Saturday and I’m still thinking about it today)

Northern Italy would be topical.
