#221

Absolutely agree. I found the nose a bit subdued. Don’t think I could level the same description at the palate.


#222

Would like to introduce my family who are community tasting virgins and loving it


#223


You’re welcome :wink:


#224

Big warm welcome to the @JayKay family!


#225

What a happy photo!!! :heart: Hello everyone! Hope to see you next time too! :smiley:

Seeing as you guys all aced the Mixup food matches - what would you say is a dream dinner for this wine?


#226

It’s Lebanese, it’s classic, dramatic, loved by all …

It has to be a match for:


#227

Just a note to the TWS copyeditor types: the descriptions at top says: “from selected grapes from the best plots” whilst the TWS notes say “from a single vineyard in the Bekaa Valley”.

Just sayin’


#228

A shout for cheese. Chocolate too. Another shout for no food at all, just a log fire!


#229

Mrs CC: food - well my initial reaction (apart from the pizza earlier) would be beef wellington, but I think it could standup well to my best beef chilli recipe ever from the Sunday Times many years ago which is ace.


#230

Yep - this doesn’t need food,


#231

+1 for beef Wellington!!


#232

I’m currently eating with some continental hard cheeses - Comte, Abondance and Karltbach and working very well!


#233

I had an argument with the landscape last week … so arrival (and decanting) was somewhat delayed


#234

Mrs CC: not bad with strong Welsh cheddar and vintage gouda


#235

Definitely NOT curry :joy:
I think this is a very elegant and grown up wine. Something like a Persian roast lamb or I don’t know if anyone has ever tasted Azeri food or Georgian food, but that theme of vine stuffed, tapenade olive led cuisine. Not quite Mediterranean but almost if that makes sense.


#236

Mrs JayKay senior suggests beef in red wine and rice. We are currently enjoying it with Dewlays Special Reserve Tasty Lancashire and it is a great match for the tannins.


#237

Ouch!!!


#238

Easy on there, I don’t do elegant and grown up! Particularly not the latter! :rofl:


#239

the things I go through for a wine tasting!


#240

:scream::scream::scream: Gosh, hope everything is alright!!!

Looooove the sound of this. And Beef Wellington, @Croquetchris. But I’m going to enjoy a second glass on its own in front of the TV! :smiley:

Marks out of 10, anyone?
