I must start with an apology. I apologise for not writing any Elitistreview posts for far too long; unsurprisingly I have an excuse. Two months ago I had a fit and collapsed into a quivering heap on the floor right on top of my left foot and ankle. I totally buggered them. So for the last two months I’ve been in so much pain I have been unable to concentrate on anything for long enough to write a tasting note.
Moreover, I have been prescribed an awfully large amount of morphine and Tapentadol to deal with the pain. Sadly, taking these leave me as mentally incapacitated as someone who drinks minor classed-growth Bordeaux on a regular basis. With my mind crippled by pain and sodding awful drugs, together with the spectre of depression lurking about because of these, taking to the keyboard and writing with my usual degree of humorous invective was simply right out.
