Not tried any of them, but I’ve got both those JJ Prum wines in the rack so curious to know what you think of them if you open before me.
The Moscato d’Asti is divine! I can’t imagine anyone not enjoying this floral and delicate concoction!
I’ve tried both those Prum wines at a tasting over the summer, they are both good although likely to keep improving. I haven’t been tempted to open my ones yet, although it wouldn’t be wrong to do so.
I completely agree, the Mortet wine is sublime. Will leave the third wine in the mixed case for a few more years.
I have a case of the 2015 of this that I tasted at the Rhone tasting this year. It is on its way to Lay & Wheeler from TWS, hopefully can withdraw a bottle early December.
This will hopefully be my last order of 2019. Mainly an assortment of everyday wines for the Christmas period, but then I clocked that the Filetta di Lamole Chianti Classico was back in stock and I had to grab 3 of those before it sells out again. I can’t say I’ve drunk lots of good Chianti, but the 2014 was sublime and the reviews for this vintage have been very good.*

Just a few odds and ends. Trying to be restrained.
I’ve also made the following withdrawal request from reserves (6 of each):
Do you think the Meerlust 2015 is ready to drink??
That Limari Chardonnay is RIDICULOUSLY good value!
Probably not but I’m trying to clear some of my EP reserves rather than just continually ordering from the website. Which has meant I’ve been in constant FOMO mode thanks to the community.
Yep! It’s not quite as good as the Exhibition version, but still a very agreeable drop. It was a tough choice between that and the Society’s Australian Chardonnay, which is also an absolute bargain.
only slightly biassed towards reds
Tis the season!!
Haven’t tried the Fontodi CC - it’s been on my Wish List for some time but for no good reason hasn’t made it into the basket yet. I found some reviews of the Filetta di Lamole here that might give you an indication though. I see it variously described as being ‘more angular’, ‘more subtle and restrained’, and ‘slightly wild or untamed within the greater Fontodi House Style’. Not sure how all of those can be true, so I guess refer to the opinion of the critic whose views you trust the most!
Of the 2014, I’d say it was very savoury. Meaty, gamey notes quite prominent with the usual herbs and red-berry fruit on top. Fairly light-bodied but incredibly complex.
Meet your sister over here…
Settled my two Christmas reserves withdrawals which need to cover gifts, wine for a work BYO Xmas dinner I’ve said I will supply, probably the odd party, and festivities at home.
David and Nadia Grenache - prospective turkey wine
Dom de Marcoux CNDP
Terre Nere Santo Spirito Etna
Climens 06 and Suduiraut 07 - (there is a lot of mature, proper Sauternes on brokerage lists at not much more than their original EP prices - I suspect having a case of one Sauternes and waiting over a decade for it to hit its window always sounds better than it turns out to be and people’s circumstances change)
Roederer Brut NV
Brundlmayer PN (reserve turkey wine option)
That, the residual bottles of the Ch de Fonbel, the Alsace and Etna whites ordered last month should see us through.
Has anyone tried this?
I’ve just realised the drinks cabinet needs a little top-up for the coming winter and this looks like it might fit the bill.
Not had that particular one but for similar money I would be tempted to go for:
BenRiach Sherrywood 12
Or even a bourbon like:
Eagle Rare 10
Edit: Deanston 12 and Bunnahabhain 12 also very good options. Or if you like a more salty/peaty whisky, Talisker 10
Been to the Co-op today to buy a couple of wines for a tasting I’m delivering to some colleagues (poor them) - and ended up bagging a 2015 Chateau Sénéjac for £15 (reduced from £17). In case anyone is interested…
It’s funny, it never occurs to me to check the Co-op, but actually they got a really nice selection of wines. Not that I need to add further shops to trawl for hidden treasures, of course…
