How much for a bottle of DP 1996 Vintage & a bottle of 1996 Bollinger Grande Annee? (in presentation box if that matters)

Edit: Hmm the DP seems to be fairly rated, following a 2 minute google.

Jeez,,,thought you guys would come up with something more affordable... :lol: :lol: :lol:
1996 DP is the best vinatge I have ever tasted...untypically DP with its depth and richness, and 96 Grande Anne...muscle in a glass..power and weight...fantastic. Two very fine bottles...I hope you are looking after them. Can't afford them, unless I could give you £200 for them :lol: :lol:
Jera of Taittinger....NV? Have you had it long? They mature real quick as not bottle matured.
Good skills guys :D

Never tried them but they seem to have a good rep. What have you got?

I am looking after them as best I can, I originally had 6 of the Grand anne, but a number have fallen victim to curiosity and BBQ's over the years.

I do every now and again try to catch up on the "drinking reviews" for the DP, and the latest few I have read seem to suggest it should be good as a keeper till 2020+ So thats probably what i'll do with it.

Best thing was, they were all free, part of a prize for winning a gaming tournement back in 2003 ish :)

If I had the time & patience (and most importantly knowledge) i'd buy more wines to lay down. After all, these bottles are performing better than my pension scheme at the moment.

Great wine but enjoy it....don't think about the value...its only wine. Get some really good fish and chips and enjoy a bottle of 96 DP..perfect

Sainsbury's basic Spanish red wine, don't knock it till you've tried it, for the money it kick butts on bottles twice its price, also try it with with coca cola :shock: blame the Spanish for that one :lol: but again well worth trying before you knock it! (called "calimucho" :wink: )

Having lived and worked in Madrid for a few years I can tell you some of the best wines i've tasted are Spanish Riojas. They keep the best stuff. And don't get me started on the Cavas :shock: the crap we get here is aweful, but a proper Cava is very nice compared to a similar French thing with a funny name that only a certain region can call it by.

Even their lagers! Spanish san Miguel is brewed in Barcelona and tastes very different (and quite nice) compared to the crap we get here brewed in Glasgow! I did a blind taste test on the family and all chose the Barcelona beer hands down :shock:
