Mystery cases

Yes, indeed, fine wine. I’ve provided some feedback. Tbh, at £20 a bottle I’d do better buying from TWS and targeting spend a bit.

I decided some time ago to never again buy mystery cases (from anyone) and only buy wine I actually wanted.

I see first star rating is in

I saw that when the listing was first added, the review seemed to relate to previous box at a lower value. The review now seems to have been deleted but the 1 star rating remains.

I rationalize it as a ‘secret santa’ gift to myself. Contents unknown until unwrapped, will be interesting and perhaps even challenging in parts - but certainly enjoyable. ref: the previous case (bottles unopend due to the curse of dry January)

That’s a super selection! I would have been very very happy with it (especially the Jura and the Achleiten! :star_struck: )

A pretty surprising selection and definitely a step up from previous cases. No regrets here.

Ooops! realised I accidentally revealed a couple. Apologies! :woman_facepalming:

I’d take that case. Nice!

Now they DO look good. I’m particularly interested in that Jura P.N. (and not cheap to buy elsewhere) I’ve never had one of them.

Well, my £165 Fine Wine case arrived and here they all are:

I’m reasonably pleased with that. The Garmón and Wachau especially. A nice SB and Chardonnay, a decent claret. No idea about the St. Joseph but sure it’ll be fine.

Very happy with either of those cases, but I’ve spent the wine budget this month… no i have, i have! :man_facepalming: :laughing:
