Sadly my Christmas Day oenological activity was limited to one small glass of Prosecco ( :oops: sad, but true) because for the first time since 1993 I had to drive. And what wine was around was courtesy of my brother - who does not share the tastes (in many subject areas) of his infinitely wiser, better looking, handsome older brother... :rolleyes: (I've been told I should be more positive about myself - so thought I'd start on you lot... )

'Lovely' ain't the word I'd use for someone who gave me an empty bottle of wine
No no it was full but thought I best drink it before bringing it in here or I might not get any!!!

My son brought these two bottles from his trip to France. The red was a little dry on first taste but once it had been opened a while was quite nice. The rose was a unusually a very dark pink and very nice to drink. :)

I don't drink much Wine, but this is about as drinkable a drop as I've come across. Nice 'n cheap too!

New Year's Eve dinner main course was lovely cuts of fillet steak with green beans and parmentier potatoes. The steak was from Waitrose, ordered first thing this this morning and as good as from our former local butcher, which has changed hands and now open only a few days a week not including Monday. All cooked by our sons so Mrs YC didn't have to set foot in the kitchen. This was accompanied by a superb Argentinian Malbec, Laborum 2015, as in the photo. A great way to end the year so far as prandial perambulations are concerned (sorry, the wine was very good and I'd had a Gin Mare and Fevertree Mediterranean as well).

Happy New Year to you all!

Some friends brought this rather pleasant Portuguese white round over the weekend :)
