Julian,The last 5 Krug from Waitrose I snaffled has arrived, all 169. I added a hambledon premier cuvee to make it up to six, never tried it before.
Wonder when Krug 170 is coming, can’t be long now?
Not sure whether we're including Costco in this thread or the competitive offers from retailers so prepared for slap on the wrist if I'm wrong...
Costco have (and on the rear label are listed as the importers) the 2006 Haut Bergey at £19.79 - have greatly enjoyed the 2005 (which is now north of £40 per bottle) so bought a couple of these at Lakeside on Saturday. I enjoyed the first bottle very much over two nights and went back to Croydon for more last night. There are about 50 or so bottles left there as of now.
If any of you want to check your local stores before travelling it's SKU# 131194 - comes in 1 x 6 carton and if you want a full box which will likely be high up in a rack, I think they like to know in advance... (Didn't know this and had to persuade them to find some aircraft steps to reach the pallet in question).
Considering the sunk storage on this, you'll struggle to find mature Graves at a much better price than this... profitez-en
Bought a few of these, and after my first bottle bought a few more. Really very impressive stuff. Fragrant, just a touch of smoky/nuttiness from the oak. Still reduced and fantastic value.Howard Park Miamup Chardonnay down from 14.99 to 9.99 in Waitrose. With the card vouchers of £8 off when you spend £40 my four bottles work out at 7.99 each. Bargain.
