I went to the London Wine Trade Fair today, I dressed in my most ‘wine trade’ uniform:
Naturally, dressed like that I got to try a lot of good stuff.
I was very impressed with the Henriques and Henriques Madeiras. There were some great German 2007s, including brilliant efforts from Max Ferd Richter and Leitz. Bollinger is always nice (1999 is so much better than 1997, almost a proper vintage, one might say). Taylor’s and Fonseca make great Port. It was a fun day out.
