Reply to "2006 Bordeaux follow-up"

spo I haven't had much luck finding many 2006 futures in that price range that I liked the reviews. Most wines rated in the low 90's are asking $40 (ish). Lagrange, Branaire Ducru, Malescot and Gruaud Larose come to mind.

Old_Winyard it would appear that the 2007 vintage isn't going to be very good, but they did have great weather in Sept. so I'm fairly confident that the wines will be OK, nothing lousy like 1999 but nothing amazing either. If the quality is worse than 2004 I think I would look at the 2006 vintage a little more, maybe buy a few things but I'll probably wait until the barrel reviews come out in the spring. I read a nice article on yahoo.com that talked about the glut of unsold 2006 wine and even the 2005 wines still remaining that will be exacerbated if the 2007 vintage is a flop. Somethings gotta give.
