November 2012: What are you buying?

I tend to like Champagne on the younger side. I've only tasted this wine twice- once at the winery in August, 2011, and a bottle with a picnic dinner a few days later. Seemed ready to go to me, but I bet w+a would lay it down. By the way, all Jean Milan's wines are 100% Grand Cru.


Just one more sip.

All that talk about second wines inspired me and I got, what I consider, a fairly good deal in Quebec at $64 each.

Finca Dofi used to be in the $85 neighborhood just a few years ago. The currency trade has really served this one well. Excellent price for the wine now.

Drank the 2006 Dofi at Dos Palillos in Barcelona this summer.

I convinced a couple of Brits seated next to me to order it. They were so impressed with my recommendation that they shared!

Yes- the Krug came from Flickinger and the others from the local Binny's on close out.

There are still some of the Krug in stock, but I cleaned out my local store of the Burgs, though as you cn see, not much there to begin with.

Can't wait to see the price of this one when it'll be available (don't buy anymore "future")...

Have many vintages, but not sure if I want to pay 100$ + for that kind of wine...

I didn't buy it at the KGBO, which means I actually paid a fairly reasonable price ($69). For a great vintage of this producer, good value.

As you say, that's a pretty fair price. Wish I could get some at that price !
