What’s in your basket: September & October 2021

Top few reds might make an appearance around Xmas time.
The Grádus Cuvée, Sebestyén, Szekszárd 2016 I’m planning on opening relatively soon on the potential of adding a case to reserves.


On the wagon for a few months, but no harm in having a few easy drinkers to hand for anyone passing through.


Delivered today


Blimey, that should keep you going for…. oh, perhaps a week or two?!

I always have the same guy from APC doing the deliveries and this morning he said
“So, see you again on Monday ?! :joy:
The reason for the delivery was purely to lower my BBR storage bill that’s coming soon


Just bought this for early November delivery.


See, I always plan to do that, and then I realise that the duty and VAT will cost more than the storage bill, and I leave it for another year. Crazy, I know.


I had that in mind too.
VAT and duty alone was £500 compared to storing those cases for around £120.

Given your luck I’m surprised any of it turned up!

There’s 1 case missing actually :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
I contacted BBR just after delivery and they confirmed it’s coming next week


Have you annoyed the wine gods somehow @Rafa ?

You seem to have enough wine related bad luck for the entire forum recently!

I’m glad to confirm all is well now

A selection after my own heart! :grinning:

The Santa Tresa looks interesting - I missed on their Cerasulo di Vittoria, so might have to do with their white instead. will be interested to hear your thoughts.
The Crozes-Hermitage blanc is delicious! :ok_hand:

Last day here in Moravia (memo to self - should have made that a week…) two out of four visits netted this tantalising selection to be carted back to Blighty.

Czech wines are a bit like Swiss - ever so good, but very little makes it out of their own country as the locals snaffle it all up.

And a view of the vineyards of Slechtitelska winery above the village of Velké Pavloviche.

interesting local varieties abound - all “proper” viniferas…


I have already tried this bottle, be interesting to see what you think, my own impression was very favourable, but as with all…

Sylvain Pataille, Bourgogne Aligoté 201


A small stock up of whites. 6 each of these two…


and the 2020 vintage of this one…



While people were going Pataille-mad, I couldn’t help noticing what Julia Harding had to say about this…


and naturally a case is on its way to reserves.
