Weekend Drinking Thread [30 Aug to 1 Sep 2019]



Glad it was so good. Completely agree about riesling; Mrs Robertd and I both love it, but you need to be careful about who you open it with.

I really ought to revisit Josmeyer. We used to regularly buy from them, but then their prices went up, and we started looking elsewhere. Good wines though - Les Pierrets was another favourite riesling.


The Josmeyer Samain is wonderful, but unfortunately only made in exceptional vintages. I didn’t realise that when I first bought a bottle from TWS for £32.

I have never been able to get a bottle since I drank this one as they haven’t made any since 2011 (I think). I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to find it again at around the £30 mark.
