email offer Xmas 2013

Hi again from TBC,

A number of people have been asking me about my annual Christmas Mixed Case Offer & I think now is about the right time for it? I do enjoy putting these together & I have some superb new wines to include this year. As per usual, I've also included some good discount on these mixed case ideas. They are meant as a guideline based on selections that I would like to receive myself - but none are set in stone so feel free to take something out replace & I'll try to keep the discount where ever possible. The most expensive case of aged Bordeaux is actually pretty limited in number as I've only very few bottles left of one or two of those. But I will offer something else if they do sell out.

I thought it would be fun to include a tasting case of 2009 Bordeaux to offer an early appraisal of this lush, fine vintage. Not the top end as it's not worth breaking into those kind of cases, just some mid range- Of course it's still rather early to be drinking them but I know a lot of people enjoy on this list the research! I'm actually on my second home case of the Medocain Ch Loudenne 2009 which drinks beautifully in it's young state. 2009 is that kind of vintage though. This year I have more choice of other regions too, which I'm really proud to include here. I don't take on new (non Bdx) wines that often, so when I do, I really try to make it a strong addition to the cellar.

I also have some yummy Sherries & Ports that could be added should you wish...the Lustau Palo Cortado is absolutely stunning. The Amontillado is dry as a bone & so complex for the price. The Ports are at various price levels, all delicious as are the TBC Champagnes, boosted by the arrival of Louis Roederer this year on as well as Pol Roger & Le Mesnil Grand Cru.

In terms of UK delivery I'll try & cut some discount there too - within reason. I'm a bit on the edge already with the discounts - but I can do the following. Orders below £100 will be charged at @ £10 + VAT, orders between £100-£200 will be charged at £7 + VAT, orders between £200-£300, £5 + VAT & all orders over £300 will receive a free UK delivery! I hope that helps! + Anyone who happens to live near enough TBC in London N7 is also liable for a freebie delivery in the TBC Jeep with the dashing driver! Not for teeny tiny orders though please, I'm quite a busy chap these days.

Anyway I do hope that you will take advantage of this offer, but regardless, I really would like to wish you a hugely enjoyable festive season. For myself I'm looking forward to some excellent tastings, starting with a Faiveley tasting next week & then my first ever trip to the Ledbury with my fellow merchant chums all bringing bottles. 'What larks Pip old chap, what larks!'

Here we have it...mostly fine wine but starts with a case of 12 Christmas crackers!
