Realm Release

I want to buy Bordeaux where Mark is buying Bordeaux.

I haven't put my order in yet, I've had a few preliminary talks with my credit card that it's going to hurt and it's going to hurt bad. It isn't inexpensive, but what they're doing at Realm is as good as anywhere else in Napa.

Need these two magnums to complete my Realm '13 horizontal - my son's birth year wines from my favorite winery. Any help would be appreciated! If cash doesn't work, have a full cellar of wines to trade champagne.gif

This is what I purchase annually. I realize some I could find in the secondary market for close to release price, but I enjoy the provenance afforded by purchasing directly.

Take the money and invest it in something quite low risk, like fixed income or TIPS (just trying to beat inflation.

Cheapest bottle of 07 Lafite in the US is ~$660 and the second cheapest is ~$790. I don't blame Ch Latour one iota for eschewing en primeur if their cash flow needs don't require it.

The picture in the original post looks like single pane shower glass in a passive cellar. I don't believe there is a way to achieve the "seamless" look as you need double pane and weather stripping in an active cellar.
