Whilst were all in a wine tasting mood, can any advise me on a few bottles, I have 6 bottles of Dom Perignon 1996 vintage & 6 bottles of 96 Bollinger, each individually boxed. I have owned them a few years now, but have never got around to deaming an occaision suitable for opening.

I have read several sites that advise to "drink now" but others which have suggested to keep it still longer.

So, crack em open soon, or save them for something special?



You son of a gun! Now I'm not a great fan of DP, but the 96! Fantastic champagne. Some say its still a little young but you can drink it now. It will age and age, in the right conditions. At a DP seminar I tried the 1982....very nice. They do change with age. Losing the primary fruit and developing more earthy/mushroomy/nutty characters. Depends on what you like.
The Bolly is a superb champagne too....very deep and rich...almost marmitey. Fantastic......I'm very jealous :lol:

If you have a top quality fish and chip shop near you, try a bottle of DP with it. Sheer decadence :shock:

Tech support/warranty/service manager for major danish bike component distributors who shall remain nameless.

Only problem is, I'm now at the top of the pile in the bike trade here and can only go sideways, unless I move to another country.

I run a seal hospital up in Scotland for a marine rescue charity (BDMLR). Overseeing training of various people and responsible for rescue, rehabilitation and release of both harbour and grey seals. Deal with setting up, funding and day to day welfare of the seals.
Used to run another seal hospital for a big company that was open to tourists but got fed up with the needs of the animals coming second to commercial interests. So now do it for a lot less but for an organisation that supports me fully.
Best job in the world.....................except when I get bitten
