Ok…NOW all you Burgunserkers will be happy to come out an play…and this thread will be filled with love and happiness, and ooze the Burgundian spirit, like being at a La Paulee gala!
Arguably the greatest wines made…and one of, if not the most collectable as well. No doubt about this one…you can drink Heaven, or flip till the cows come home! How many ya got??
I have one, a 2006 GE that I picked up from a respectable retailer at what was a good deal at the time and now seems to be a real steal. Kind of fun to wonder what occasion will warrant opening this trophy.
DRC? What’s that?
When I was growing up my mom always had a bottle of red Burgundy (right next to the Sauternes) in the cupboard for cooking.
My entire purchase of Burgundy wines over the years can be counted on one hand.
All I have is one bottle of Jadot Macon Lugny in my cellar right now.
Maybe a more interesting exploration than the numbers is how many folks have both DRC and SQN in their cellar. I know you do, Buzz. I’ll admit freely that I do too, but I haven’t really consumed any red SQN I’ve bought, having only gotten on the list a couple of years ago and wanting some integration in my big red wine. Maybe I’ll hate it. I know I like DRC. I’m something of a label drinker. I don’t find other Burgundy experiences to rival DRC (or Leroy). There’s a unique signature to those wines in their youth and middle age, at least, that I don’t see elsewhere.
