Re: The Burgundy (aka $100) Daily / Weekly Drinker

Even putting aside the fact La Tache blowing through the relaxed pricing bands of a couple hundred dollars, I am curious: are you saying you believe you can source cases of La Tache fairly easily and it would be your wine of choice most days?

Re: The world's most expensive wines- from Wine Searcher

I'm surprised to see no Barolo in the top 50. Despite all the price increases in Piedmont, it is still a relative bargain region. How much do you think the region's prices are going to grow further? Would you say this might be a golden era of buying before we approach the heights of Burgundy or are...
