Case of lilian ladouys at $18 bucks per I believe. That's it.

I'm not sure Bordeaux is made to last 20-30 years these days.

Gee wiz, save some of the Malescot for the procrastinators.

That does worry me a bit but worst case I drink them early instead of holding them for a long time.

Nothing so far.
Stay thirsty my friends.
Leoville Poyferre ($114)
Pavie Macquin ($78)
On futures picked up:
Pontet Canet - $108
La Pointe- $35
At retail I recently tried a Picque Caillou ($20) and it was really nice. I've had this in several vintages and 09 is the best yet. Way better than the 05. Will be getting a case of this.
I'm looking forward to finding some gems at the $15-$25 price point.
Very few, may buy more when released.

I got a six pack of each:
Other than maybe some lesser 09's for earlier consumption, I think I'm done with Bordeaux. I took one look at Pontet '10 future prices and went no further. A bit more than I'm willing to go. Plus the '10's seem like their going to be much slower maturing than the 09 vintage and I'm just getting to dang old to wait that long!This message has been edited. Last edited by: Hoopty,
At my age, this may well represent last licks. But at least, they'll be good ones!
Malescot St. Exupery
No more future 1st growths for moi. Too expensive, and I'll be OTH when they're ready to enjoy. Damned if I'm going to buy them for my boys to enjoy with pizza and burgers. The last ones I purchased were 2004 and they'll probably drink well young.
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
Well it appears RMP is off his rocker. List of wines with bottle scores of 100 points (Found on WB/eRP):
Beausejour Duffau Lagarrosse
La Mission Haut Brion
Smith Haut Lafitte Rouge
Another Nada (so far).
Sometimes I read a thread and think we ran out of stuff to talk about like 4 years ago. ~spo
19 by my count, with another 3 awarded 99+ and 8 more at 99.
Wine is passion. It is family and friends, warmth of heart, and generosity of spirit.

Off his rocker maybe, but I hope the market still takes his hundos up in price as in past. I've got a case each of 5 of the lucky winners. I'd like to sell some and drink with the house money.
Wait you do not drink Bordeaux, you must be off your rocker.
