A 3 pack of Romanee Conti £9,000 ($11,037) or $3,679 per bottle? La Tache £2,910 per pack of 3 ($3,568) or ...

61 LT has probably seen its best days and 99 is still on the upswing. 62 is a legendary LT and always regarded higher than 61.

If getting Burghound, look also at View from the cellar and Tanzer’s work.

Re: 100 pt DRC question?

Well, in his 'Pearl of the Cote' (which should be required reading if you're studying any VR sites), AM gives the '99 a 99 (along with '05) and cites that as perhaps a conservative score (not adding the fantastic note). The '61 he doesn't think nearly as highly of. Much prefers the '62. Ryan is cor...

Re: 100 pt DRC question?

The biggest problem with old DRC is that it was bottled barrel by barrel( even today its only bottled 6 barrels at a time) -so there's a reasonable amount of variation. This doesn't include storage and cork variation also.Anything from the 60's is pretty rare by now with doubtful provenance. All re...
