The Society's Fine Wine List Apr - May 2018 is available online


#1

Just noticed that the new fine wine list is now available online…

Quite a few saliva inducing items there. Lot of Burgundy and top drawer Rhone. Not that I needed this from a financial perspective.


#2

Bank says I’m gonna be strong and sit this one out.

I will I will I will…


#3

That would be sensible…

Might just cancel my Burgundy 2016 order (if I get allocated anything) and spend a little on this instead…


#4

Think I’ll wait and see how the 2016 Burgundy pans out and then look at my wallet. That new list all looks so good that if a few sell out, there’ll still be some lovely bottles to choose from.

I have to keep reminding myself that something else good always comes along…


#5

But what if it doesn’t?!


#6

Don’t say that!! :grimacing:


#7

Have to say it is a very impressive list…


#8

This is irresistible:

I’ve been waiting for a mixed case of Billaud to come along that would give me access to his range without committing to a full six bottles…


#9

Had a similar feeling about the Fichet case.


#10

This forum is why I’ve no money EVER :scream::weary::sob:!!


#11

I tried the Vajra Nebbiolo at a tasting a month or two ago and thought it was great, so will definitely take a few bottles. Just when en primeur was almost over, and there was some prospect of having money again …


#12

I think our post-Easter resolution (if there is such a thing) should be working on our will power…!
Easier said than done, considering what’s on offer, I suppose…:open_mouth::open_mouth:


#13

Perhaps some wine will cheer you up? :smiley:


#14

I’ve succumbed. The Domaine de Bellene did it for me. I recently tasted a 2014 from them, and it was better than a premier cru tasted alongside.


#15

Don’t forget there are also other small stocks of fine wines found here:


#16

that’s just naughty…


#17

This Langhe Riesling looks particularly tempting… something to explore

As well as this Rully, I have praised the 2014 vintage enough elsewhere… also £3.50 cheaper than the 2015.


#18

I love Italian Rieslings…often under priced in my experience, as this one looks to be. But I am looking for some 2014’s that I can put down for a few years…of which there are plenty in the £40 range…damn my skinny wallet


#19

But when do we get the fine wine list in the post? I’ve got a train journey coming up and would really enjoy flicking through it as I travel.

Mind you, that Poderi Colla Riesling is already in my basket for my next order.

They’re in the post! :heart_eyes:
