GG:

My offer still stands for trading or buying those 2003 Bordeaux from your hands. I'm still kicking myself for not getting any 2003 Cos when it was still available for 149.99 per bottle.

Oh well, life goes on...
If you ever reconsider just send me an email.


That's music to my ears. I like the way you think. Big Grin

In retrospective, those are very nice prices for the St-Pierre and Lynch-Bages. I wish I would have bought those 2 wines when they were offered to me during the 2009 E.P. campaign.

Other than that regret, I didn't do too bad myself during the 2009 E.P. campaign. Several of my friends thought I was crazy for going so deep on 2009 Bordeaux due to high prices. Then again, maybe they are right to still think that I'm nuts for doing that. Smile

JAR, one of the first signs of going crazy is growing hair on your knuckles. One of the next is looking for hair on your knuckles. I did a whole lot of looking at my knuckles when I was paying over $100 a bottle for the short list, above. I thought I was crazy. But, now my sanity has returned. I didn't even think of 2010 futures. 2009 pricing was bad enough. 2010 was much worse.

Eyeballing this, i think there are over 400 bottles in that list. I hope to live 40 years more or so, at consumption rate of roughly 125 bottles a year and probably 10% bordeaux, i think i may reach that total by the time i am scheduled to go underground. Bow

Interesting you actually found some for below $300 at release.

I also got some from the LCBO over a year ago at $159 and it sold out the day of release. The 2010 was released a while ago at $329 is still available. This is the first time in many years(except 2007) that LFP has not sold out on initial release in Ontario. At $300+ I'm out Crazy

Yes, I was very lucky to get a case for this price from Wine Exchange. Smile

After further checking, Wine Exchange actually charged me $124.99 per bottle instead of $119.99...I just updated cellartracker with correct amount.

FYI, the high quantity is what made my friends and I still question my lucidity.

I'm also hoping to live another 40 years to enjoy these wines in the company of friends. If I don't make it; then, Santiago (my son) is going to be drinking some good juice.

JAR, you really did well in your purchases. In reference to your comment about my having gone deep on 2009, and you had too . . . I think I'm in the deep end of the kiddie pool . . . you're in the big kids' pool! On the Pontet Canet, I bought a case in 2000, have over the last 3 years tried one a year and have not had a good experience yet. I'll now wait 3 more years (into 2015) before opening my next. I surmise you're probably 15 or 20 years younger than my 60 years, so, you've got time to drink your wines and let those needing longer periods to age do so. I actually thought I would not be buying in 2009 but the reviews indicated early maturing wines and I thought I'd have one last go. Glad I did.

KL has a small quantity of Smith Haut Lafitte Rouge at $199.99
Not a great price, but already the cheapest.

I have had Lynch Bages, Malescot St Exupery and Coutet come in so far. Although I always get excited once they show as in stock, it's probably best that it takes longer while I try to reduce existing inventory.

Not buying any, but the Lynch Bages, Echo de Lynch Bages, and Les Ormes de Pez are all excellent, especially the Lynch Bages.


Just one more sip.

Good to hear Board-O. Picked up a few of the Lynch-Bages.
I have not received any 2009 futures yet.
