    I'm quite partial to a bottle or two of Shepherd Neame's Spitfire Ale myself but then I am a Kentish Man and common as muck. I have also been known to sup of the Bishops Finger...

    “ …strong deep colour with an intense bouquet of red berry fruits and underlying notes of spice. It is well balanced and fresh with a soft supple palate and elegant finish.”


    Normally £6.99, but on offer at £5.99 from the Co-op.

    Default A nice little slurp!

    2008 Les Caves de la Colombe, Nuits-Saint George, Burgundy

    http://www.marksandspencer.com/Marks.../dp/B00FCXMTFO



    Pinot Noir grape, 13.5% ABV

    It’s been a long time since I enjoyed a Nuits-Saint George burgundy. Bought for a double celebration: posting my 7,500th post here on AoS, and, more importantly, to celebrate my birthday.

    Not cheap at £32 a bottle, but who cares? – it’s Christmas!
