What is in your basket January to February 2020

Just tried it wow. Guess I will be buying more than one bottle next time available or on EP. Just the nose was enough to know I was in for a treat


Curse you Wine Society and your glossy marketing. Just flicking through the Best of Bordeaux at the weekend before consigning it to the recycling but succumbed to a case of 6 of these.

No immediate plans to drink and hope to have the patience to let them slumber in Members Reserves for several years.


After successfully staying away from Rhone 2018 EP… case of this found its way to reserves, fits my rebalancing the cellar objective though (drinking till 2035…)

Two other interesting half bottles that may yet be ordered this month:

Half bottle of Val de Loire ‘Collection’, J Mourat 2018
Half bottle of Bleasdale Bremerview Langhorne Creek Shiraz 2017


Might want to check that drinking window, unless you love an over-the-hill Bordeaux :wink:

Thanks… 2015 would have been silly. :slight_smile:

Looks lovely by the way. I just can’t quite bring myself to spend £25 on half bottles. Give it another year as part of this community, however…

You do have a point… I also had second thoughts and decided not ordering.

Sorry to hear that. Great wine with a great drinking window, but…

Just placed this order. We didn’t make the white Rhône v Burgundy tasting but on the basis of comments curious to try the Macon. Giving a miss to the Rhône 2018 EP offer but ordered a few to taste- so may be back for more! A few wines on special and two of the three for the next online tasting which hopefully we can make.

Yeah, can’t imagine you’ll get the Santo Spirito for that. I think I got my 2010 from them, and paid about 22 quid, I think, back in 2012. Second their appalling service, btw - don’t think I’d buy from them again.

We will have to see when L&W check it in - I have been sent proof of delivery now

…it’s not everyday someone gives me £13.50 back, so obviously I’m pretty stoked about it. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::sunglasses:


Is that the collection discount?

If so I might have to bear that in mind a few days before my storage fee bill is due

Yes. And that’s exactly what I’m planning to do with it, leave it on account towards my storage fees which fall due in March!

Unplanned order, but in need of halves atm and these seem perfect for the everyday drop. Also got a bottle of that ximinivriojkfio everyone talks about to take me into free delivery :truck:
