I thought I’d try to enliven the board a bit. Of the wines you think are truly top-flight, which ones (if any) are also great values?
Before I give my list, I have to shout out Burlotto Monvigliero, which used to be $50-$75, then got Galloni 100ed and is now $150++ for all vintages.
The three remaining that most do this for me are:
Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs
Domaine de Chevalier Blanc
B. Levet Cote-Rotie La Chavoroche
However, a brief list of hororable mentions for one reason or another:
A.J. Adam Hofberg Riesling Spatlese
Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc
Paolo Bea Sagrantino Pagliaro Secco
Conti Costanti Brunello Riserva — just checked its current price. Nevermind.
