Sunday discussion time only $17.73 to spend today.

#1 Post by Robert M yers » June 30th, 2019, 6:30 am

I can find a ton of wines with $1000 to spend but now that I’ve spent my last grand and went wine less on Saturday because of it, all I could round up was $17.73 in loose change. Now I need a wine on Sunday but it Can’t be a penny more because I already went to the car, the couch and every other conceivable spot for cash but this is it. Originally only found $15.73 but I knew that for only 2 dollars more I can always get a better wine, so I bummed 2 more off the neighbor.

Also, this wine store I go to has one of every wine under $17.73 stocked in the world, please don’t mention the same wine over and over though because last time that happened this shop raised the price of my Gonon from $40 to $100.

They will match winesearcher though with straight up out the door pricing.

I’ll make it easy/hard for some of you and just say Lascombes just sold out.

So I need a wine on a $17.73 day? Thankfully I get paid on Monday.

I should mention I found $4 under my sun visor, and an extra $2 and change when I accidentally broke my son’s piggy bank. I don’t think you are trying hard enough. $19.73 is an incremental $2, and the gain from such an increase would be monumental.

I could agree with you, but then we both would be wrong.

The Columbia Crest red (H3?) they sell at Costco.

*as I type this now I’m afraid it’s closer to $19.00 so hit the couch cushions and see what you find.

What's a dollar again? I would probably go for a Cab Franc from Yannick Amirault from Bourgueil, can find them starting at about 12€.

At last, a man who speaks for the common folk! I often find myself in a similar situation, +/- some loose change on the top of the dresser. If I were to pick a wine that I could bring home today for that money, it would probably be the 2017 Fevre Chablis Champs Royaux. "Not bad", by which I mean pretty good!

Bottle of Substance Cab and a dog or slice at Costco will leave you an extra buck for 1/3 of a gallon of gas to get home with.

There has to be something in the Costco aisles. The 2015 Senejac was sixteen and a half bucks at my local a few months back.

Perhaps a Louis Martini Sonoma Cab? A Felsina Chianti Classico might be a dollar too much so you'd need a coupon, but Monsanto CCR at Costco will do, or pretty much any white wine from Friuli!

Should be able to find a nice Sauv Blanc for the summer for less, maybe enough left over for a large beer bomber like 312

Charvin Cote de Rhone if you search a little.

Pepiere Muscadet, even the Briords with a little searching.

Guionm Bourgeuil, Cuvee Domaine

More cru bourgeois bordeaux than you can shake a stick at, if that's your idea of a good time.

Marietta Old Vines Red is still around $10-12, amazingly.

One c ould go on.

I could be pretty happy with a Willamette Valley Vineyards Pinot from Costco, a Vajra Langhe, or a Pieropan Soave Classico. Might even be able to get the last two together and still stay under the limit at the right store or with a coupon.

Where can you still get a hooker for those prices???

It really pisses me off - since we started going on about it on this bloody board, there is literally nowhere left where you can get some limp pleasure for 15 bones any more (let alone coke for $2.23 a line). Please keep your habits to yourselves guys, or I'm afraid the prices will just sky-rocket again...

Jadot Bouzeron, which seems summer appropriate

Or Lafage Bastide Miraflors, if you want a heavy red

Both I would rate in the high 80s. Both are available in the $13-14 range

Man I wish I could find Produttori Langhe near me for this price. I know it exists... but its at least $4-5 more by me. I would consider lining a wall in my house with it at $17.

I built a disclaimer in there just for this reply from this pimp but is it possible auto correct changed Lanessan to Lascombes [oops.gif]

Probably just lightheaded from looking upside down everywhere for change...

According to The Economist, you should stick to wine. Hookers are getting cheaper, but they're still going to cost more than we're talking about here.

Interesting that the internet has facilitated the DTC model, which seems to be working for sex just like it does for wineries. By cutting out the middleman they can charge less and still keep more. A win-win.

http://money.com/money/3103806/sex-pric ... tes-cheap/

Oh, and with that money, I'd get Marques de Riscal reserva. If you don't like that, unless you know of some widely-available Muscadet or Riesling, I'd just go to the clearance rack of the local wine stores and see what they have, rather than buy something that's put on the market with that as the normal retail price. Actually, I do that all the time anyway.
