Hi all,

Local store had some interesting choices for a budget Bordeaux lover. Here is what I bought. Any of these you suggest I get more of? I don't plan to open these up any time soon.

2015 Château Cantemerle $35
2015 Château Fleur Cardinale $45
2015 Château Fonplégade $42
2014 Château Léoville Poyferré $64

These are some futures I wanted to get, so if my futures are a better choice, please let me know.

Chateau Talbot 2016
Chateau d'Armailhac 2016
Chateau Fombrauge 2016
Chateau Giscours 2016
Chateau Lilian Ladouys 2016
Chateau Siran 2016
Domaine de Chevalier 2016

So they have this little heart you click to "like" a reply, but when you click it you're told you can't "like" the reply.


So I just have to say it - the Chianti suggestion is brilliant. 

Not to mention that you can do Chianti at a lower price point.

But rather than ask, I'd try a couple of the wines, figure out which I liked, and then buy those. As for futures, I'm not sure that there's any advantage any more.

In great vintages Cantemerle almost always makes a pretty good— though never great— wine.

Leoville Poyferre is an excellent producer but you’ll have to be patient. 2014isnt as highly regarded a vintage, but I’d wait 9 or 10 years before opening one of these. Price seems decent for this wine.

Those would be my choices.
