First case of 2023
A few to test the van delivery
Inside Burgundy by Jasper Morris (2nd edition)
An increasingly rare purchase from a retailer other than TWS as much of what I buy tends to go into Members Reserves and I really do not wish to have more than one storage provider.
This purchase was prompted by the demise of a local merchant (Appellation Nation in Cheltenham) who sadly has been unable to renegotiate their lease and has made the decision to close. Decent discounts on a number of wines I love.

Forgot to add that there was a further cheeky purchase of 6 x Meerlust Estate Red 2019 at a cracking £8pb. A wine @Drainhole was eulogising about recently on the South African Saviour thread. One of these earmarked for the weekend!
Curses. Tried to snaffle a few very appealing g bargains there but no National delivery
Impressive burlotti haul from EP
Not at all jealous…
Ooh - are you planning to try some soon? I’d be eager to know your thoughts, if so, as I had been planning to leave mine for a few years.
I’m not sure yet but I will definitely share notes when I do
Trying not to buy wine - upcoming building work will require complete clearance of the cellar - but…. I am a sucker for a bottle of lagrein
I cannot tell you how frustrating this is ….
I’ve just put a case of Rapsani 2019 in reserves, when I went to pay I had a credit on my account … I shouldn’t have , this is the VAT and duty on a case I’ve requested to be delivered this week from reserves , so now I’ll expect an email to settle my account ….
It’s a know issue.
Once you pay for vat + duty on a wine it takes 24-48h for the credit to be applied against the “order”.
The transaction should be vat and duty payment but instead is a credit to the account.
I think it’s a case of poor design rather than an actual idea. Again I could be wrong
Still… it’s stupid
Reduced to £15 ish, I’m not going to buy any. Well maybe just a few for the summer.
Thanks, duly ordered alongside 6 of these Domaine de Perdiguier, Cuvée En Auger, Vin de Pays des Coteaux d’Ensérune 2015
Despite not being the biggest fan of cabernet sauvignon these seem to hit the spot. A good crowd pleaser too.
