    Default Happy New Year from the UK

    I have at last managed to get a missive out onto AFW. I have not posted much
    of late, but the notes have been read avidly.

    Part of the reason for not posting is that I had a Left total knee
    replacement before Christmas, and then had a series of complications, (
    always the same if you are in the trade). With a Hb of 9.5 on Christmas day,
    my brain was not really working, but had a bootle of Pauillac 2005 with
    roast pork, huge, massive extract and tannins all in balance. Infanticide,
    try again 2 years. This the 3rd wine of Latour.

    Will continue to lurk and may be able to get our annual dinner notes third
    hand. My only second miss in 29 years.

    Cheers JT

    John,
    Sorry to hear of your ailments. Here's hoping for a swift recovery.
    And don't forget to exercise that new knee of yours! Thanks for the
    note on the Paulliac 2005 -- I have a bottle of the 2003 that my group
    gave me a few years ago.

    Good to see you here again, best wishes for a full recovery.
    I've liked this wine in some vintages, but what a confusing name!

    Amen to the name issue! I have a few random bottles and it always
    puzzles folks when I try to explain it. Thanks for the notes John and
    best wishes for a speedy recovery.

    at least with Ch. Margaux you can say " Chateau Margaux", with this
    you have to say "Pauillac, the 3rd wine of Ch. Latour" to avoid
    confusion
