Re: 2018 Bordeaux - What are you buying (and why)?

Agreed with Neal, I wish I had bought more wine in halves. Now 100% of my Bordeaux EP purchases are in halves. It’s even harder to find Burgundy in halves.

Re: What bottle of wine did you open today?

Decent selections for a Tuesday lunch.

‘99 Roederer Cristal - rich and creamy, just lacks a bit of details.
‘82 Ducru Beaucaillou - semi-shut at the moment, shy nose but excellent balance and length.
‘66 Beychevelle - wide open and delicious.

I take it by your purchases that neither of you thought that the Pichon Lalande was priced high. It seemed to come in higher than I expected.

Higher than expected but I want them in halves, so bite the bullet.
