Large format

What do you buy in large format, and why?

Looking at the cellar, the vast majority of mags and larger I have are champagne. I have a few mags of Rhônes, but very few burgundy mags. I have a few of bojo and rose, but probably 90+% are champagne.

Re: 2016 Sauternes Vintage -- Good or Bad?

I feel like the price of 01 rieussec is as low as 50% of what it was right after release when it was ws woty. I’ve bought full bottles for 100 lately which is absurd imo.

Re: 2017 Quilceda Creek - yay or nay?

If you like the style, it’s a good wine; I’ve fallen off the list in recent years. I do think the prop red is where the value is with QC. We drank the 100 pt 2005 a few years ago and it was certainly good if you’re oak tolerant.

It's interesting to see how sauternes vintages compare to bourdeaux vintages of the same year. Clearly 2009 was good for both, and 2001 was great for sauternes, but not so much for bdx. 15 seemed good for both, so it'd be interesting if 16 was that bad.
