Re: Grand Reserve World Mastercard - Earn up to 8x Points On BD12

I know, I bought one of those packs, but they don’t always have them. They have them now. Why would you make that post knowing that they cost $300? Because that’s what they cost. Even at 300 it’s still the best value on there IMO. Ok Thats ok! Just pointing out that it’s a $300 comparison not $400

Re: Grand Reserve World Mastercard - Earn up to 8x Points On BD12

Sensory 4 pack seems like the best deal. I tasted these wines at a local NYC tasting several years ago. Craig from Sojourn suggested it. I’m referring to the conterno sensory glass. The 4 pack is usually ~400 so that’s about 0.8 cpp, or ~5.6% on the 7x pts. Just so you know Rare Wine sells the Cont...

Birthday Champagne!
This was actually an accident. I meant to bring Cristal 2004 Rose. I took the wrong bottle to dinner. It was dark and I said I can’t see any pink. Then I realized it wasn’t rose. Anyway the bottle was amazing!
