#1 Wine in time for Christmas, help a mate's E-Type fund.

Post by rfs1957 » Sat Nov 14, 2020 9:47 am

Despite their joking at the perpetual state of dismemberment of my car, my mates Robin and Liz from Le Domaine de Saumarez (just up the road) were allowed to sit in it for the picture.

There is a well known French adage that "to make a million in wine, start with two", and given that they didn't put their "two" in E-Types, and that sales have been hit by Covid, it seems like a good moment to encourage E-Type buyers to stock up on some Saumarez in time for Christmas.

It is important to note that their red is "As Drunk By our moderator 1954EType Angus Moss".

They ship stuff all over the world and you can get a box of 12 S' reds delivered to the UK from around 138€ including shipping.

I'll put the link to the above when I can find it.

Their rosé faux-champagne is fantastic.

Thanks Rory, Jill is checking them out (she has wine stuff certificates or some such) and will pass the links to our village wine club. Is there a Forum discount?🤔

I have a friend who live in Luc sur Orbieu and works at the university in Montpellier, so those varietals are very familiar to me.

Mind you shiraz, grenache mourvedre etc are bread and butter here in South Australia as well.

These wines will be delicious!

I can see the next gathering at Moss Jaguar not being about E Types but a wine tasting :roll:
Andrew can ship a few cases over from Oz and Rory bring a supply with him from France (and probably some smelly cheese :roll: )
Just make sure to bring a co-driver to drive you home
As usual Heuer will arrive in his RR not his E Type. Why? Because there’s space for more wine :bigrin:
