Thanks all. I was celebrating the final year of my 30's
Coincidentally Cru world wine (ex Bibendum) had their Bordeaux 2016 en Primeur tasting at lords cricket ground on the day of my birthday and Patsy kindly allowed me to go to with some friends.
Fantastic tasting if you're a bdx lover and great value for the £40 ticket price (4:30-8:00 to try as much as you like). At the end of the event I was kindly gifted a bottle of 2014 Chateau Lagrange by the producer who I had been talking to earlier. A nice result
Patsy and I celebrated my birthday on Saturday, going into London for a meal at the Weetbury hotel using a dining experience gift voucher we received as a Christmas gift. Delicious 7 course meal with which we splashed out on a wine pairing as price per bottle was ridiculously expensive anyway. All wines were nice but served in slightly (too) small measures and nothing really jumped out as outstanding that I took note for future reference.
On a positive note, we were taken into the kitchen to meet head chef Alyn Williams who was a really lovely guy. We had a good 15 minute chat with him about food, wine, football and family life before returning for our desserts.
