It almost feels unfair to do this, but…

Wine of the night?

  • NZ Chardonnay
  • Exh. Haut Medoc

0 voters


#163

8/10 for me - it went well with my beefy burger! Most claret needs food


#164

WE know……………:rofl:


#165

It was a very close call for us, we like them both muchly.


#166

Compared to other Bordeaux wines at similar price points this is really great value for money in the current market. A £10 bottle of Bordeaux would be distinctly less impressive!


#167

I have burgers on the way for dinner so I’ll give that a try! :smiley:


#168

I can’t really vote, definitely a bad bottle for me on the haut-medoc. Have tipped the glass down the sink and switched to the Chardonnay, which I have to say I’m really enjoying!


#169

I mean… I’m sure @MrLaura has been called worse :sweat_smile:


#170

Well that’s GREAT to hear for someone who’s not generally a white wine fan! :smiley:


#171

Sounds like it could be brett…


#172

That’s what I was thinking too.


#173

The red has a lovely nose and is quite food friendly, but it’s quite ‘hot’ for me and perhaps a little unbalanced as described earlier? It would be good to try in a few years time, methinks.
6.5 for me, at this time.


#174

You rang … ?

or does that just age me …?


#175

Would it make it worse if I said I don’t get this reference…?


#176

Too young…!


#177

Yes!! (Brett Sinclair, from The Persuaders. Look it up! Roger Moore, with Tony Curtis)


#178

We got it :grinning:


#179

Yes it seems to fit with descriptions I’ve read. I’m not getting the corked mouldy basement thing but I am getting barnyard and quite frankly rotting cabbage. yuck.

Well I’ve had very very few wines that I’d consider faulty and this is my very first from TWS so can’t complain too loudly.


#180

Who is that? Roger Moore?


#181

I don’t get it either, feeling young for a change!
