and 1966 Ch Cantemerle under TWS label, too…

Not the Wimbledon shop sadly… anyone tried?

Also observe the label in light of this discussion.

Funnily enough, I was doing some cellar rearranging last week, and the thought occurred to me that a thread on old TWS bottlings might be fun. It was prompted by the fact I have a half-case of 1970 Ch. Meyney. One line that pops up now and again in discussions elsewhere is TWS’s own bottling of a Cote Rotie, which usually impresses.

Did you try either of those, @szaki1974 - I guess from your wording you didn’t?

I have not tried the ones you mentioned either. I popped in the Wimbledon shop yesterday, but they did not have them on tasting, which I sort of knew. They do have a bottle of the Cantemerle on the shelf, but that at £140, no thank you.

Crikey! I paid a quarter of that for six bottles of the Meyney! Mind you, I guess their price comes with a merchant’s guarantee.

Not sure, most probably not? I will not test now.
