I don’t see VCC as being stylistically very similar to Lafleur. Pricing for Lafleur and VCC went into orbit in 05. Both were ‘very reasonable’ before.

Very little Pensee in 18 it seems.
Agree they are different; both are unique. Don’t see any quality gap, and I think if they were priced the same I would not buy VCC either. And I suspect, I would miss the VCC more.

I could agree with you, but then we both would be wrong.

Lafleur is more uniquer.

This is great. Kudos to Panos for not recycling hype.

Nice article, Panos!!! Love it! Will read it again another time, perhaps two more times.

Looks like I'll be waiting to see if an offer pops up for La Reserve de la Comtesse '18
Apparently I'm lazy, have a narrow agenda, and offer little in the way of content and substance (RMP) (and have a "penchant for gossip" -KBI)

I always liked him. He is always respectful and kind in his replies to people.
He has a straight forward honest POV in his reports.

Thanks for looking up my report! Anyway, I just posted some TNs from it, a selection of wines including bargain category for 2018, as tasted from barrel. Cheers!

Thanks for reading! Indeed, I was hardly alone in singing praises for this particular second wine in 18. [cheers.gif]

He is also a pretty good taster. [berserker.gif]

So I pulled the trigger on 4 X 12 half bottles (375s) of Labegorce, Siran, Poujeaux, and Capburn - to corner the low end QPR market. [wink.gif] Talked to a few stores today and learned that Calon Segur has been selling quickly (e.g., Bassins bought 200 cases and is down to 11 cases as of this afternoon). [cheers.gif]

Haven't seen too many half bottles for sale at my preferred stores. I shall continue to wait!

200 cases? Wish I could get an allocation like that!

Phil, Now that I revisit my comment about Calon Ségur, it may have been 200 bottles not cases. In any event, 2018 futures seems to bringing out more buyers than recent vintages. [cheers.gif]
