- Can source enough of it to drink it regularly (say 3-5 cases per year qualifies given that you might have a few daily drinkers in rotation)
- Be accessible when you open it (could mean consumable young but could also mean easy to get older bottles at quantity)
- The price needs to be at a level that can be stomached at that rate of consumption.
Normally, the biggest constraint in these conversations in price. I want to put the price high enough (I am saying that is up to $100) that the other restrictions (ability to source, wine profile being a good candidate for simple service and frequent enjoyment, ideal cellar time) actually enter the conversation. To be clear, the goal of this question is to remove (in a reasonable way) the number one constraint on most people: price. I am curious, if price were really not the question, but you still had sourcing and cellaring issues, what would you go after?
I am interested in both white and red thoughts.
I expect the answers will be producers that are more white than red and, if red, more likely Cote de Beaune. Though it might be harder, I hope people try to name reds in the Cote de Nuits.
I hope this thread stays on the rails and doesn't drive people down a path lamenting the prices of Burgundy. Let's see!
