Not knowing what you like, would recommend the usuals...Bordeaux, Burgundy, Riesling, Barolo...

Amit, tell us the types of wines you like and you’ll probably get more responses.

Love the power of positive thinking here!

I have a vision of prisoner Xing out his calendar each day.

No idea of your budget, but I would celebrate 2030 with some Donnhoff
Hermannhole GG from 2015 or 2016 and some H. Lignier Morey St. Denis VV 1er Cru from same years. Oh yes, and 165eme Krug Champagne to kick off the party ...

But that’s just me ...

A case of each.

Not to pry, but why is it going to be OK to drink it 11 years rather than 9 or 13?

And as others said, it's a meaningless question if nobody knows what you like, and even more so if YOU don't know what you like with age. It might be best to stay away from everything and at that 2020 mark, just go out and try things. If you invest your money now, you may be able to pick up some older vintages then for not more than you'd pay today and have to store.

If it’s not guaranteed you can drink in 2030 I would buy nothing. Put the money in some index funds and then use that money to backfill in 2030.

Most Cru Barolo from 2013 vintage
Most Brunello wines from 2013 vintage, especially from traditional producers.
Franz Hirtzberger wines from just about any vintage you can find right now

literally any of those from a decent producer should fit the bill.

are you looking for specific names?

2015 Lagrange (St. Julien). One of my favorites from 2015 tastings and a proven ager. If you like more age on your wines, then buy 2005, 2009, or 2010.

You're going to cellar something for another 11 years, if you can't drink it (or anything) and deal with all the aggravation like temperature maint, 'shrinkage', constraints on moving etc. ?

That doesn't seem sensible.

If you need some wine to drink in 2030, I'm sure you'll be able to find what you need. Perhaps by then flying, self driving drones will deliver it to you after you order it by a brainwave app too!

With a Riedel designed taste app that will let you taste the most specific flavors of the grape variety. We will only be drinking monovarietal wines by then, all cloned from the best grapevine of its type.

I would stick with high end red burgundy and maybe top level Riesling.

Back vintages of Bordeaux are easy to find, White burgs are risky due to premox, and I don’t think Rhone reds need that much age.

2015 Southern Rhone & Languedoc
[2016 Southern Rhone & Languedoc won't be ready until about 2116, if ever]

2015 Sangiovese & Nebbiolo from Tuscany & Piemonte

2016 Bordeaux if you're a bazillionaire
2015 Super Tuscans as a poor man's substitute for 2016 Bordeaux

Sadly, I don't know of a poor man's substitute for Bourgogne.

And 2015/2016 Northern Rhone is starting to get into bazillionaire territory.

2015/2016/2017 dry trocken Riesling from Austria & Germany
Also look at those same vintages in Alsace [if you can find a fully dry Alsatian Riesling].

I'd also look at putting away some Melon - typically Muscadet, Muscadet Sevre et Main, or Muscadet Sevre et Main sur lie.

I had a Pepiere Gorges recently which was a dynamite wine, and which ought to be killing it circa 2030.

Have to disagree a little with Nathan.

2016 Southern Rhone will be ready before 2015 Southern Rhone... opulence.

Lacking Bazillionaire status (barely a millionaire), I find Lanessan financially accessible and should be perfect in 2030. For under $100 look for top Pessac-Leognan whites to wet (or is that 'whet') you whistle in 2030.

The poor man's substitute for Bourgogne is Bourgogne, and the good ones from 2015, 2016 and 2017 will be terrific in 2030. This applies to both reds and whites.

Enjoy when you can.

2018 Napa Cabs should be in their apex in 2030. Not yet in bottle. But to me most Napa Cab peaks from age 8-14. So the 18s should be stellar.

I understand 2028 Cru Beaujolais will be really good, but by then with climate change the wine will be made from Grenache rather than Gamay.

2020 Bordeaux and Burgundy. I heard from a "source' that it will be vintage of the century.... :-P

But seriously - I heard 2018 champagne will be amazing and by the time it is out, it will be almost 2030!
