2019 Roilette - Fleurie - normal and tardive
2019 Bouland Morgon Corcelette

Curious to try and compare the 2018 versions, which I liked a lot - to quote the Wine Advocate on the Roilette Fleurie: " If the gourmand generosity and wealth of fruit of 2018 will win the domaine new friends, then the fragrant and beautifully balanced 2019 will exercise special appeal over Beaujolais purists." This intrigued me so I bit on the bottles.

Krug MV has never been my #1 jam in its price range, but I could not resist a couple of bottles of the 168eme delivered all in for $137 (with a couple of coupons).

Seems like I managed to violate some unwritten rules on my first post in here newhere

While certainly not the intention those wines are certainly my most exciting recent purchases for a variety of reasons. With that said the chance of me buying them at an attractive price with the potential to resell to people who can actually afford drinking them have allowed me to purchase (and drink) some really interesting wines. Posted some of them in another thread tonight however from most recent purchase, since it was today, Occidental 2017 Station Vineyard and 2018 Freestone Vineyard in a "vertical" tasting.

Of course you’re free to post what you want and this is nothing personal. But please understand it may rub people the wrong way if your first post is a brag about purchasing unobtainable wines for speculation, contributing to the ever escalating wine prices and making it even more difficult for people actually interested in those wines to try them.

Having said that, welcome to the board and I hope to see more posts from you, preferably contributing to the wine geek culture here, not hurting it.

This intrigued me so I bit on the bottles.
Had a 17 bouland corcelette vv the other night that was excellent.

This thread is for wine purchases. We can add “what’s your most recent wine purchase that you plan to drink” I guess?
Seems like I managed to violate some unwritten rules on my first post in here newhere

While certainly not the intention those wines are certainly my most exciting recent purchases for a variety of reasons. With that said the chance of me buying them at an attractive price with the potential to resell to people who can actually afford drinking them have allowed me to purchase (and drink) some really interesting wines. Posted some of them in another thread tonight however from most recent purchase, since it was today, Occidental 2017 Station Vineyard and 2018 Freestone Vineyard in a "vertical" tasting.

Of course you’re free to post what you want and this is nothing personal. But please understand it may rub people the wrong way if your first post is a brag about purchasing unobtainable wines for speculation, contributing to the ever escalating wine prices and making it even more difficult for people actually interested in those wines to try them.

Having said that, welcome to the board and I hope to see more posts from you, preferably contributing to the wine geek culture here, not hurting it.
If the wine is for speculation, it is going to end up back in the market place. And hopefully well stored. Don’t see too much harm here, the market will determine the correct price.

3 Antinori Tignanello 2016, 1 Joseph Phelps Insignia 2016 and 2 Piña Buckeye Vineyard (Howell Mountain) 2014. The Tig and the Insignia were on sale at my local grocer for an insane price. Too good to pass up!

No offence taken and appreciate you taking the time to reply (as well as welcoming me). I am still new here so working on navigating the forum. Since there is a trading forum as well I thought investing was also a natural part discussed here. I have no intention other than actively contributing to the community in a positive way so thanks again for the heads up :)

And @Mark.- they are certainly going back in to the market place again :)

On the purchase note: Just got 3 bottles of 2008 Domaine Serene Grace Vineyard on auction tonight at a rather attractive $100/bottle. Haven't tried anything from Serene with a bit of age on it before (only had 2015 and younger) so curious on how it is. Based on Cellartracker looks to be ok.

Cool, so post when you buy some shares of the S&P500? I thought this was a forum for people who drink wine
+1. Really bothers me that people don't buy wines to drink, makes the hobby that much more unobtainable for so many...
It’s +/- I guess. I guess it depends how big your cellar is and how significant a percentage those wines make of it. There’s a few ppl here who have dozens or hundreds of cases of drc because they bought when it was less expensive. I started a bit later so don’t quite have that many nor is it as big a percentage of my cellar but except for a couple bottles (birth year stuff) I’d probably open whatever in the right setting. We had good friends in town last year and were opening drc, Rousseau whatever because we knew they’d appreciate it. If I only had one bottle I might be less inclined to do that, idk. Maybe that was Andrew K’s point in his infamous thread.

Totally understand that. For me, it is an intentions-based thing. If someone bought cases of DRC back in the day (or today) because they want to drink them, all the power to that individual. What I take issue with is when people expressly buy bottles so they can sell them to make a buck down the line.

I agree; I’ve actually never sold a bottle of anything; there are much better investments than wine, for the most part.

The way I see it, wine is for drinking. As long as something is likely to drink well and whoever I’m opening it with would appreciate it, I’d open pretty much anything.

We are completely aligned here, I feel the same way!

The real question is: when is the offline at the Chang’s? I promise to bring good stuff!

My first visit to Wine Wave in Delray Beach was cathartic. I came away with some singletons for short-term:

Laherte Ultratradition BdB Brut (4/19 disgorgement)
2017 Tibouren Clos Cibonne Rose (Andre Roux)
2018 Huet Clos de Bourg Sec
2008 Lopez de Heredia Bosconia Reserva (first site of the latest after thoroughly enjoying another btl of 2006 last week)
2019 Fauth Elektrisch Riesling Kabinett (AP 18) (Rheinhessen; putting some faith here in Von Boden/Stephen Bitterolf although pricing is very cheap)
