What is in your basket [January - February 2021]

Likewise - #2 bottles of the Os Cantals winging their way to reserves. Sounds lovely and right up my street.

(Along with a spot of backfilling of red burgundy and a Greywacke Wild Ferment SB, that have been ‘hanging around’ in my basket for a while - just to make up the full case you understand).


Just taken delivery of this lovely lot.

As I was looking a twitter this morning I came across a recommendation for a Vinsobres; the Jaume, Reference. So what a delight to discover I had already ordered it and I would have it in my hands in a few hours time!

Looking forward to trying he much discussed Bellavoine Bourgogne


Thanks for posting. Had one bottle of the As Ladieras which took a good while to come out of its shell but was really good when it did. I think that was also limited to a couple of bottles.

I’ll just have to hope @JamesE sends a glass down the road in the mystery bottle :pray:

Well it’s not very mysterious if you know what it is! (we’ll have to see…).

I’m sure I wouldn’t recognise it if it turned up tomorrow…

So there’s room in the cupboard after some good wines over the past few months. After some deliberation, another lockdown birthday for him shortly, some recommendations from these threads and always looking for midweek wines this order has gone in, and as it’s a February order for delivery in March it allows for another order in March-April :thinking: :laughing:

This trio arrived today. Haven’t tried any of the Hoppenot wines but might give it a while. The Burgundy won’t see the world beyond Sunday based on the TN thread


Yum, what a trio. Would love to hear how the Hoppenot tastes, once you get round to it.

Of course :+1:t2:

First 2019 White Rhône arrived today. Love the label.


I drew a blank on this in the TWS allocation but easily picked up some elsewhere. Worked out less than £1 a bottle dearer “on the table”. So “all’s well that ends well”.

I upped my purchase to a dozen ( I asked TWS for six) based on Jeb Dunnuck’s glowing 96/100 review. Just means less budget for white Burgundy…


Wonderful wine!

Please post a review here (or on CT) when you try it!

Also keen to try a couple of Hoppenot wines so a final order for Feb saw them added.


@GWills Great looking order there!

Will do - but expect a wait. I don’t plan to open a bottle until at least late 2022 - more likely 2023.

I’ve put a case of the Hoppenot Moriers into reserve. Debating whether to have half this summer or hold it another year. Will probably try it as it will get drunk over a couple of days anyway.


Getting ready for an Easter BBQ as deliver is late March…but I now need to put the MasterCard away.
