6 X 2002 Bollinger La Grande Annee
Show me a good loser, I'll show you a loser - Vince Lombardi.
I have a few of his 2009 Volnays, need to pick up some 2010s. Would be interested to hear your thoughts on them.
Needed some weekday wine, so bought 6-pack of 2009 Clos de Los Siete.
2010 Bergstrom Bergstrom Vineyard Pinot Noir Dundee hills AVA.
Not a bad idea, Uncle John.

I PHONE 5.....now if i can only figure out how to use the thing....my 6 y/o will have to show me.
Say NO to Shiraz!
On the other end of the spectrum, my 80-year-old father-in-law just bought an iPad. He's almost never even touched a computer in his life.
Work took me to Beschia province, so on my return, i took my lunch hour in valpolicella:
2 x 2009 corvina seral
2 x 2009 ripasso costamaran...at 10 euro per, how can i not buy this?
2005 amarone campo casalin
2007 amarone 5*
3 x 2009 amarone

2006 Frescobaldi CastelGiocondo BdM
2009 Vieux Château Mazerat
Maison Roche de Bellene Chambolle Musigny "Collection Bellenum" Vertical Case 1995-2002
This is from a large collection of back vintages amassed by Nicolas Potel and relabeled under the name of his negociant house, Maison Roche De Bellene. I won't know who the original producer was until I look at the corks. But M. Potel tasted through some 2,500 older burgundies while selecting only 160 for the Collection Bellenum so I have reason to believe the juice will be of reasonably good quality. This case contains one each from the 1995, 1996, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002 vintages.
The complete story of the Bellenum Collection is here.
2006 Edmeades Winery Zinfandel Late Harvest Perli Vineyard
Live simply, Laugh often, Wine a lot!!!
Just paid my 4 bottles of 2009 Pontet Canet 6L
These should start showing well in 2059 - 2109. A friend of mine in the biz ( best palate I know) tasted this wine at the Chateau. He thinks this wine (.750) will start to show in 25 years, but will really offer something special in 50+ years
I hope you are a VERY young person, aav.
Finally got around to purchasing what some may consider one of the better representations of Cabernet Franc.
2004 Le Macchiole Paleo
I've never tried this wine but look forward to it.
Excellent choice. We tried the 2002 a few weeks ago and it was nice, probably the best effort possible given the difficult vintage. But it was nothing like the 2004. Look forward to your impressions when you try it.
What w+a said
aav. what did they cost?
I bought a 6 liter of 1979 Pichon Lalande and 1979 Leoville Las Cases at release, each for the same price. Care to guess the price?
Just one more sip.
Monte Bello Futures...now for a (2) year wait
I know, there's something fun about taking delivery after the long wait. Then you realize opening one so soon would be infanticide, so you have to wait another five+. I assume these were the 2011?
Wine is passion. It is family and friends, warmth of heart, and generosity of spirit.

Have you enjoyed his Version Originale or Les Carelles?
Give them both a lot of air and do not drink them too cold or even in a Champagne flute.
