Interestingly, the day after MW advises that they have moved their masterclass to Wednesday 27th November and replaced Alexandre with Bibendum's Rob Walters due to the former no longer being available, Langton's sends an email about theirs still with Alexandre:

  • Domaine Ponsot Saint Romain Blanc 2016
  • Domaine Ponsot Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru Clos des Monts Luisants Blanc 2016

Sorry for the delay - if you haven't already contacted them, then try 02 8507 2645 and/or events@langtons.com.au

You're welcome, I'm not, but looking forward to perhaps meeting either of you, or anybody else, at one - unfortunately I can't make it to tomorrow's Bollinger masterclass anymore, where a few other AFFers will be :(
