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)


The contents of my Fine Wine Six-Bottle Mystery Case at £165 and for those that like to add up the values, I price it at between £180-190 (if you can find them!)

  • Saint-Joseph, Les Grands Ducs, Domaine Merlin 2017
  • Château Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc 2012
    *Kumeu River, Rays Road Chardonnay, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand 2021
  • Klein Constantia Perdeblokke Sauvignon Blanc, Constantia 2020
  • Côtes du Jura Pinot Noir, En Barberon, Andre & Mireille Tissot 2019
  • Domäne Wachau Ried Achleiten Smaragd Riesling, Wachau 2012

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:
