    Sounds nice and at a reasonable price too! Where did you buy yours from Marco? Sainsburys?
    Sorry, Barry, I missed that. Are you referring to the wine? If so, we bought it in France

    Jolly nice it was, too!!

    Wow! The going rate for the 2000 1er Cru Beaune Teurons is 1060 a case, or 88 a bottle!

    Enjoy

    Respect, Andy

    However, I hope before you drink it, you decant it properly, serve it at the right temperature in proper glasses for Burgundy, and most of all, enjoy it with a meal that befits its stature!

    Hi Marco

    Yes, all done properly.

    It's getting there, maybe a couple more years to reach its best.

    Finishing off with Ramos Pinto port. Highly recommended.

    Les Coucherias is worth looking out for. It's not bad at all.

    I got the Teurons through a mix up. I actually ordered a couple of cases of Les Hospices 1er Cru as I only had one bottle left but recieved the Teurons by mistake. As a goodwill gesture the seller gave me a partial refund and I ended up paying less than 8 per bottle.

    I wish I had the self-discipline to lay a wine down for 7 or 8 days, never mind years!

    Sounds like a good evening!
