Re: Paulee AMEX pre-sale out

I am likely to attend grand tasting and vertical tasting.

Question really is whether with first press package I shell out another $1100 for gala dinner. It’s the last year I could buy first press :)

Re: Bordeaux with 10-20 years and < $100

Still not clear to me if you want current drinking only or drink and cellar or only to cellar. Citing 2005 wines suggests only to cellar. Drink and cellar. But cellaring is really for the short term (< 5 years). So ideally something that’s drinking well and becomes even better with some more age.

I am getting 2004 Haut Bailly for $65 in the UK and 2008 for $85.

Lowest US price is $80 and $100 respectively.

Given the shipping cost and uncertainty on tax, it’s not enough difference to import.
