    For someone who's indifferent about Brut Champagne, I must admit this is pretty good. Not the Cr*p you get from the big houses and keeps well too.

    Bought 2 cases of six about 3 years ago. worked out at about £100 or so.

    This ones now out of the cellar and being chilled ready for tomorrow.

    Just ordered a case of this to lay down for a few years:

    2009 Château de Boissac Bordeaux AOC



    Merlot, 13.5%. To 2016. Around £9 a bottle.

    "Deep ruby colour, elegant, complex fruits of the forest aromas, with hints of clovesand vanilla. Smooth, rich and wonderfully structured."


    Just to remind you, 2000, 2005 and 2009 were excellent harvests. Many believe 2009 to be the best of the lot!

    No not really, but I can guess. Still got a couple of bottles of the 2000 'Vieux Scrotum' left!

    That's the way to do it, spend £110 or so now and in a few years you can be enjoying not only a better wine but without paying a price inflated by the greedy speculators.

    Looks a good choice by the way.

    Hi Barry

    Yes 6.6 and I'm afraid i can't remember to be honest trouble is i also had some weak stuff called Blitzen @ a mere 6% , which i didn't care for .

    All my drinking buddies were on the Beast and Allan was in a shocking state and just suddenly disappeared ! poor bugger he was ok next day though .

    Never again
