Thanks for that.

I wonder if any of those bottles are still alive somewhere, tucked away and forgotton.

That sounds like a pretty good burger van.

Relating to that 1945 Pol Roger vintage & a speculative walk down memory lane....

The Champagne crop grown during the end of the war (ww11), Good vintages in the post War years they say. I wonder if the growers were expecting to be celebrating in the November. Harry S Truman (April 45) had his generals reserve a few cases, en premeur :wink: Churchill's favourite was known to be Pol Roger - he appears to have had a special cuvee produced, which still exists today. At the beginning of the 50's, rationing still existed, and you couldn't easily get a fresh egg, unless you had hens in the garden, but by the time we get to 1956, well now, the '27 Port is wheeled out, is that a good vintage GK. You know your recent Port wines.

Glory years for Wolves, the directors were certainly living-it-up. Was this a golden era for your club GK ?

'27 was an interesting year, from the port forum-
Quote:
1927 – One of the classics, among the 20th century’s best. Dark red, highly concentrated and with a balance of aromas. A year of exceptional production, also in terms of quantity, with quantities well above normal. All cellars announced they had Vintage wine. It was exported in 1929, the year of the Great Depression, with traders in London finding it very difficult to sell. Because of this fact, part of it was used for producing ordinary lots of Port Wine.


I wouldnt say no to an evening alone with a bottle :wink:

As for wolves, I dont know what they were doing back then and I'm not enough of a fan to care.

Dunc,

Hi, back in the late 40`s upto 1960 Wolves were the team who started floodlit matches against the best teams in Europe.
Only Man Utd I would say might have been more successful, I once did a chart on a point scale etc which had Man U followed closely by Wolves for all the 1950 seasons.

Google Major Buckley as he was the manager who introduced eating some strange foods back then.

I would love to try a 1927 port

Richard

I remember the Wolves games and floodlights from my childhood (in B + W of course). So I did a little reSEARCH and came up with...
