Also offered the Elements 6 pack. In for one.
Ended up getting a few wish list items added too in the end. Total of 68 bottles
The 2020s are already drinking well so can’t wait for the 21’s to arrive!
68 bottles of the 2021!???
the fact that someone drinks 2020 auberts already is more surprising to me then buying 68 bottles actually.
I am usually cellar these long/medium-term as well, but based on Aubert and various pro-taster’s feedback, I have had a several of my 2020s too. They are great now.
We have been opening some 2015s and having a great experience.
With 9-12 bottles of each I do not see why I would not want to experience them early as well as mature? I drink young Burgundy too
Allocation of 9-12 bottles of each, plus some mags. Adds up quickly
That definitely does lol!
Drank 2021 Sonoma coast chard over two days recently; obviously young but very good.
I also was only offered the mixed six pack at the release’s open. This is also my first time being on the allocation.
I just logged back on and can now buy up to 6 bottles of Powder House individually ($110) and wish list up to 6 UV-SL.
Anyone else experiencing this?
I have the same, bummer it’s after BD and I have no $$ left to get any ha
I just checked and could order the same. Andy in the same boat as you
Question for everyone one the Aubert list. I am on the waiting list however they sent me a teaser release while I wait. I was offered the Powder House and the UV-SL only. The catch for me is the 6 bottle minimum, was definitely going to purchase but not sure if I really “needed” 6 bottles between just those 2 selections. A call to the winery didn’t help as they were pretty firm on their minimum.
So the questions is with this being a first go at Aubert are these 2 bottles specifically worth loading up on 6 bottles just to make the cut?
yep.u didn’t cut offered the well done end part of the prime rib. those are badass chards.
21’ being a very good vintage, I would say yes. Depends on whether you are willing to pay the vig.
There’s always a 6 bottle min and unless you’re dying to do a horizontal tasting, there is nothing wrong with getting 3+ of only 2 cuvees. I love the uv-sl and have yet to try the powder house.
I was offered the same and was wondering the same as you given I don’t have a lot of experienced with Aubert. I think I’m going to bite the bullet fwiw.
Yeah same here for me, makes more sense with shipping costs north of the border to do a case. Committed to 3 UV-SL and 9 Powderhouse. Hopefully made a good choice! Havent had either of these.
Side note, I asked if purchasing moved you to regular allocations and the answer is no unfortunately. Signed up last fall and we’ll see if I make the fall 2023. Definitely appreciated allocating the extras to people on the waitlist though, was a nice touch.
Sigh I guess I’ll fire up my crying credit card for another beating right after Berserker Day
