Monday 29th November

Intense working all day (as usual) and then in the evening, into London to 28-50 for dinner with David Wainwright and fellow wine-lovers. He is showing an eclectic selection of wines for the upcoming Graham Lyon’s cellar auction at Zachy’s that include gems such as Bienvenue-Batard Montrachet 1978 from Domaine Leflaive, Cote-Rotie 1978 from Jasmin, Hermitage 1972 from Chave, Coutet 1949, a 1864 Solera from Blandy’s, Nacional 1963 and so on and so on. Some of the wines are stunning, the triple fried chips likewise, although I have to pour most of my glasses away because I have to drive home from Guildford station. Can you imagine pouring¬†those wines¬†into a slop bucket? Sacrilege. But drink-drive laws do not make exceptions for Nacional ’63.

  1. Don’t you have taxis?
    I’d rather walk home than spit such lovelies.
