Xmas Fridge 2014

The old fridge conked out so I bought a new one (£129 from Curry's, and no thanks, I don't want to pay for a three-year extended warranty).

Clearly, the contents will change of the next few weeks (e.g. overflow food if the main fridge is full), but to get the ball rolling, 3 bottles of Tesco Cava, 2 bottles of Tesco lemonade and the rest is approx. 50 cans of Foster's.

50 cans of Fosters? 50? Fifty? Five oh? That's quite a lot of Fosters. And, who is the Cava for?
Our 'cellar' (cool cupboard under the stairs) has about 2 doz. red wine (mainly a very nice Cote du Rhone), about 2 doz white ( mainly a very nice Italian white plus some special Alsace for me), about a doz. Champagne Lallier, half doz Prosecco, about 2 doz bottles Stella, 9 bottles Black Sheep. We have a 'beer fridge' in the washroom rather like a ready use ammunition locker that has cold Stella ready to go. And there is a cupboard in the kitchen that stocks all the specials - Scotch and various liqueurs (one of which is an astonishing plum flavoured Saki...).
We don't drink a lot - honest - but we have a big family...).
Erm...re-reading that it all looks a bit decadent. Good.

Lola,

Cote du Rhone? I had a phase of that, but I'm more into Burgundy now. Have you tried Guigal? Their Cotes du Rhone and Gigondas are very good.

I've got an assortment of things, but I'm really looking forward to trying the Chateau Musar I've had sat on a rack for a decade.

TS The CdR is one Mrs Lola likes...

L, 50 is not a lot if you spread it over a three weeks. The Cava is for Her Indoors, of course.

TS, best to do a bit of research on the Musar. I once went to a Musar tasting that showed it "goes dumb", i.e. it's ready to drink within few years of bottling, but that's a short window after which it doesn't really taste as nice for a period of years. I can't remember the actual figures. Old Musar is fabulous stuff though.

TS. I am not that knowledgeable. I have a client who is a wine merchant. That's the sort of client everyone should have. I buy for Mrs L's palate and treat myself to occasional things, that's the Alsace.
