Absolute minefield. Unless you are particularly well versed in each chateaux and their vintages and have tasted their wines young and found them to have aged in a certain way giving certain notes and qualities then it is porbably best to avoid any bordeaux under 5 or even 10 years old. I am yet to try a Bordeaux less than 8 years old that has been anything other than decidedly unimpressive.

No Mouton.. I almost picked 2 up this morning but I am leaning towards actually saving money for some 2019 burgundy.

I aim to buy for future drinking so not too many 1st growths but its been very tempting at 750... Give it 20+ years to forget about the cost.

Right now the longer term holdings are like PC/Pichon L/Figac/Cos/Ducru/SHL

Combined with some shorter term we enjoy / hopeful QPR vintage standouts to try Branaire-Ducru/D'Issan/Laroque/Cantenac Brown/Lilian Ladouys/Siran/

Had a 2006 Pontet for New Years that was shaping up quite nice.
