Re: Do you calculate your end of life when thinking about what to buy?

At 70, I have stopped buying special occasion wines and even most of the highly sought after wines I used to hunt down. Except for a couple producers that I get a decent allocation of some of my favorite wines, and a connection to DRC for a couple bottles, I'm just buying a few ready to drink wines ...

Re: Those of you lucky enough to experience '61 Lafite...

The best Lafite 1961 I have had was out of magnum. the wines during this era tend to better in large format, probably from better barrels. Both the maligned 1970 and 1975 were much better out of big bottles. Good to know because I have a magnum of '61 Lafite left to try during it's 60th birthday.
