This thread is making me feel better. I rarely order wine more than once or twice a month! So I'm doing great on frequency. Still struggling with quantity.

It's a line from Seinfeld.

This year I've picked up 3 bottles of 17 Rousseau. 3 bottles of 18 Roumier. A whole ton of Raveneau and a case of Meo BR. Oh a mag of Malconsorts and 2 btls of Richebourg from HN in the 18 vintage.

But still firm on Dry January.

Still haven't purchased wine, but I did buy a 3L RR Supplication over the weekend. Tried to argue it was beer, not wine. Different themes, different reasons to buy. Was told I'm full of excuses. Lol

To be fair, I wasn't really trying not to, more curious to see how long it would be before something tempted me enough.

2019 Huet Haut Lieu Sec flipped the switch. We were just noticing a shortage of dry chenin.

Other than a few bottles of cheap whites for cooking, I had not purchased any since August 3, so the three scattered six-packs yesterday count as an appetizer for the B-Day entree.

I am suffering too. Buying four new tires just didn’t cure the ills. I have identified a bunch of 2019 kabinetts i am likely to buy tomorrow, however.
