What many outside of this community don't realize is that part of the criteria for the Top 100 is availability and, in the case of the '05 CC Reserve, the availability and very low price are certainly HUGE factors in putting it at number 1. Don't get me wrong: it's good wine, but it's #1 more due to those two factors as oppposed to being a wine that is going to knock your ever-loving socks off.

And, yes, I've had it. Several times, and it's 92 points max, IMO. To each his/her own, I suppose.

you can always buy the same bottle at much later date, or whenever you want.

you can't exactly buy the same show whenever you want.

look at it this way... the tickets would be an option. passed a certain date, value goes to 0.

A bottle of wine is like a stock, it can appreciate or depreciate in value.
you can buy it now, buy it later.

It's a little unfair to take advantage of a microcephalic though.
LOL. Frankly, I wouldn't be caught dead paying that for this wine. I also don't really care if someone else does.

It's basically worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Not what I or you might.
GregT how is this person who bought it gullible? He paid market price for it. In fact some closed on winecommune for 150 a bottle. Always amazes me on here that people feel they should sell their wine on here for what they bought it for or in many cases even below what they paid for it. Why would anyone sell something that has a value of 125 for 25?? If that were the case it would just give the person who did buy it the opportunity to sell it for the 125.

It's really quite simple. Let me break it down for you. The wine is over rated, made in mass quantities and the price is driven by hype and the mistaken impression that the WOTY is the best wine of the year.

Anyone that pays that price is gullible.

They certainly have the right to do it, but that doesn't make them smart.
