Reply to "What were your best wine buys of 2012?"

The best buys of the year, relative to current market, at a cost of $25.86/bottle, with provenance as close to ideal as one can hope for as the second owner of these bottles:
1989 Lynch Bages
1995 La Mission Haut Brion
1990 Figeac
1989 Pichon Lalande
1989 Leoville Las Cases
2000 Leoville Barton
2000 Pichon Baron
2001 Paloma Merlot (& a mag at $52)
1991 & 1995 Ridge Monte Bello
Togni cabs: 1990-1992, 1994, 1996, 1997 & 2001

Some other good deals:
A bunch of decent NV Champagnes (Launois, Arnould & others at under $20), plus some NV roses at less than $45 (Bollinger, Gosset & a couple of others)
2008 Brocard Chablis Les Clos at $35 (direct from the distributor, a friend, on close out)
1982 Borgogno Barolo Riserva at $40
2008 Petrolo Galatona at $60
2007 Petrolo Galatona at $66
2005 Rene Rostaing Côte-Rôtie Côte Blonde at $100
1997 Huet Cuvée Constance at $100
2007 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage Blanc at $100

Not quite the $3 deals that VM finds, but I think I did fairly well for our cellar this year...and there's a few days to go...
