As my wife has indicated that she would like to explore Burgundy (thanks to a book she is reading, bought while on vacation) she wanted to start with Meursault, so I bought some:
2008 Pierre Boisson Meursault
12 x 2010 Vieux Donjon- willing to sell or trade if people interested.
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
Are you sure she meant explore *the wines of* Burgundy, rather than Burgundy itself????

Indeed I am.
A pair of big bottles today:

2005 Banfi BdM
2005 fontanafredda barolo
And also took delivery of...
2 x 2001 Casanova di neri BdM
My first experience with eBay.it and the bottles are very likely fake. At the time, I figured the purchase was a bit of a write off, as I didn't think the postal system would actually deliver, but lo and behold, they arrived. The bottles were inexpensive and there was no designation of cerralto or tenuta nuova, but I have seen other bottlings for the domestic market here that vary from exports. I emailed the lot nos. to the winery and will wait to see if they respond.
Didn't like them or just too many for the cellar?
I might be interested in a couple/few.
2006 Etude Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville
2007 Tua Rita Perlato del Bosco
2009 DuMOL Syrah Eddie's Patch
2006 Andrea Oberto Barolo Vigneto Brunate

2004 Casanova di Neri BdM White Label
Officially done for the year... haha
I think you overpaid.

Based on TN's and the fact that '10 CdP are so highly touted I bought a case/ These are very cellarable and I thought I'd buy enough for the long run. However, if any TWC are interested, I thought I'd offer some up for those not available to score any at their local LCBO. i will not open these for approximately 10 years
I kept the recepit just in case.

6) 2006 Querce Bettina BdM Riserva
6) 2004 Col d'Orcia Poggio al Vento BdM Riserva
Bought some 2001/04 Camartina at a local enoteca in Greve that was offering them at a 30% discount (paid 63 Euro).
This shop also offered me some 1999 Fanti (San Filippo) Brunello at 44 Euro. I know Suckling gave that vintage a very high score, but that was when they changed away from the traditional style - and I'm not sure I trust his scoring. Anyone care to offer their thoughts?
Sr. Neri emailed me back. The bottles are legit.
6 x 2010 Pellegrino passito
6 x 2011 Pellegrino moscato
I do hate to pay full price. These were Costco purchases and I wanted a few extra 3L bottles in the cellar for decoration so I didn't mind so much. Both of these wines did get 90 points from the WA.
Great time to get into Burgundy with prices reaching record highs. Prepare to max out your credit cards.
There are still plenty of great wines at good prices in Burgundy. You just have to look at little harder than in the past.
