Mure alsace riesling, Huet, and @$256cad the 08 winston churchill is actually reasonable all things considering.

Monte Bello now $299.  I used to enjoy buying that wine.  No longer. 

That's crazy pricing. It was $115 USD direct from Ridge. Mine are waiting for me to pick up next week.

If anyone has tasted the 08 Pol Roger Cuvee Winston Churchill - is it actually a 100 point wine?

It will turn into exceptionally good wine regardless of score.

Used to be a halfway decent value from the KGBO.  Up $70 a bottle from last year by my records.

Wow. I just checked. I paid $480 for my Magnum of 2015. It's $605? 26% price increase?!

Not sure what a 100 point wine tastes like but as Rob mentioned, it should be damn good in time. 

Nothing at all from any region that I want to pay the tariff for. The closest is probably the 2013 Azelia Barolo Bricco Fiasco, but at $128, they can keep it.

Paid $388 for my mag of 2013.  Those are some steep price increases.

All the 2008 Champagnes I have tried have been delicious, so I am actively looking to add more of this vintage to my cellar.
