What is YOUR most recent wine purchase?

#1 Post by Roy Hersh » May 11th, 2012, 5:54 pm

I think it would be interesting to see what others are buying these days.

This week, I found 2 bottles of Hanzell Chardonnay from 1997 and a 3 pack of 2007 Sandeman Vintage Port.

What about you?

Just found, and purchased today, two bottles of 1989 Domaine Chanteleuserie Bourgueil Cuvee Beauvais. Consider me psyched to take possession next week!
This is the land of Cabernet Franc, better known locally as “Breton.” While some vignerons in the area add up to 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the Boucards make pure varietal wines. Bourgueil is among the most age-worthy of the Loire Valley’s reds, and the wines from Domaine de la Chanteleuserie are no exception: their 1976 still drinks well today! Despite their structure, these wines have a suppleness and generosity of fruit that set them apart from most wines produced in the area today.

I just came back from Montreal where I bought sweet wines from South Africa, Spain, Italy, Languedoc-Roussillon, Rhone, New Zealand and Chile as well as some Vintage Port and Madeira from Portugal.

This week I make a return to some Niagara icewines with an OPEN 07 and a Kittling Ridge 10 Vidal icewine as well as some Yalumba Museum Reserve Muscat and the Cattail Creek 08 Late Harvest Merlot. This last one is the single best late harvest wine I have ever had in my life but I've got some in my collection that may yet wrest that title from it.

a full case of a Loire Pinot--Domaine du Chateau d'Eau 2010 by Moillard. Had it in a little French bistro, was impressed, and it sells for about $13/bottle.

Brigaldara 2010 Valpolicella Classico... insane deal at $11. Some Veneto producers seem to be raising their entry-level game. I've had some solid to extremely good bottles of Bardolino, Valpolicella, and Veronese in the last year in the $10 to $20 range. Good news for those of us who don't like the heavy Amarone style but love the grapes.

Two mixed cases of Siduri and Novy wines. Their open house is this weekend and they pass along the same deals to the mailing list. 15% off on a case and 25% for two cases so I mixed and matched until I filled in a few gaps. Some Roses, Hirsch and Cargasacchi pinots, some Sauvignon Blancs, Vigonier and even Nebbiolos. Can't beat the prices.

In the last week or so, two bottles of 2000 Trimbach Gewurztraminer SGN Hors Choix and one 1984 Graham Malevedos from BP Wine, two bottles of a 2010 California Grenache I'd never heard of from Envoyer but Greg made it sound like I couldn't not buy it, and three half bottles of 2010 Donnhoff GKA Oberhauser Brucke from Premier Cru today.

Love this thread.

I just picked up a few halves of 1976 Rieussec and they look too good to resist. The best part was the price: halves for $25 at auction. Can't beat that for a 35 year old wine.

My summer installment of Copain. One case made up of 2010 Baker Ranch Syrah, BrosseauChardonnay, and Brosseau Syrah.

Before that, it was a collection of Dauvissat Le Clos and Les Preuses.

Have not bought anything since the recent Bedrock and Rhys mailers due to impending apartment purchase. However, we decided to rent instead, so I think it's time to break the moratorium.

Atta boy [drinkers.gif] . I ordered my case of Copain y/day, too. As for the Dauvissat, it's like your reading my mind as I have been poking around for some older bottles lately, mainly Les Clos.

And with Monte, I bought some Novy this past week, too. I guess so much for my love affair with France.

I am finding that many 02 St Emilions are drinking very well right now. I have been following this one over the last four years and it appears to be in its window right now. I suspect it will hold at this level for a while and begin to decline. Full disclosure, there are some that would call this thin but I think it is beautifully balanced with lots of interest. It is not a wine that is going to keep for a long time, but there is a lot of pleasure in it right now.
