YAY @tfpywfpy!! Huge congratulations to you and your better half who did all the work :wink:! She is absolutely beautiful!! :heart:️. Celebrate in style :blush:.


#24

Congratulations! But do you really expect to get some sleep?


#25

This tonight in preparation of placing my Rhone EP order.


Think the ‘Prestige’ will be going in the basket if this is anything to go by.

Congrats @tfpywfpy
And like @tom says, great name! Very Aussie :australia:


#26

That was some lunch…


#27

Please let us know how you found it.


#28

Absolutely fantastic - it must be the Syrah in the Bordeaux blend that does it. Such great wine. 2005 still plenty of intensity


#29

Cracking news. Congratulations! Hope you’re all doing well x

I don’t understand northern Rhone reds. They just don’t do anything for me; mostly they seem to stink of tomato plants (you know the weird pong on your hands after you’ve been tomato picking? Anyone?!).

However I absolutely love southern Rhone reds, and I’ve been buying them en primeur since the 2007s. I’ve branched out to a handful of N.Rhone reds EP but been unimpressed with everything I’ve drunk.

So tonight, as a result of the recommendations from this very forum, we’ve had this:

Blood and tomato plants. I give up. This has made my next Rhone EP order much simpler!


#31

This was good with a chickpea tagine. Vibrant and juicy with a bit of grip. Shame it’s already out of stock.


#32

Congratulations @tfpywfpy! Fingers crossed that you both get some :sleeping:


#33

Haha good to hear. I have just one bottle and I know the wine society have sold out on it already,


#34

Purchased before the prices went loopy.


#35

Congrats to you, Lucinda and the new baby! Lovely photo :heart_eyes:


#36

Oh, congratulations, @tfpywfpy! She’s absolutely beautiful! :heartbeat:

Now, if only I could convince Mr Johnson…
(Only joking!!!) :grimacing:


#37

Yes, I agree with the blood…let it breathe longer though. I like the feral, gamy smell of it.

I know the smell you mean from tomato plants, but can’t say I’ve ever noticed it with Northern Rhone wine.


#38

congrats @tfpywfpy !


#39

Glad to hear! Ours is sleeping soundly in the wine fridge, ready to be summoned… :+1:


#40

Many congratulations @tfpywfpy !! Tonight was going to be a dry one but will join you in celebrating Matilda’s safe arrival.

Given all the Rhône and Gigondas talk I went for this…

Cheers :wine_glass:
