Picked up another case of 2020 Bucci Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore DOC Italy from WA thanks to the Berserker discount-Thanks Todd!
We really enjoy this wine and a QPR, IMO.

A bunch of 2021 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc & 2004 Muga Prado Enea Gran Reserva for daily/anytime home drinking. Looking forward to having some of the CB SB tomorrow dinner with a bit of linguine alle vongole. Might open one of the Prado Enea w/ the meat course too.

Original release price. There was so little '19 that they released more '17 in a lot of cases.

Nice. I got a bunch of 17s back when they were cheap but should’ve bought more.

I was under the impression that yields were fine in 19 ?


From where? Yields were low across the board and down over 50% in some cases from 2017.

Reading BH.

Some people have seen the work I’ve done on this topic, but suffice to say, the Z scores of 2019 (relative annual production since 1970) are all below normal, except RSV:

Monti: - 0.7Z
Corton: -0.8Z
Ech: -1.2Z
GE: -0.3Z
RSV: +0.1Z
Rich: -0.9Z
LT: -1.2Z
RC: -0.4Z

Yeah the only offers I’ve gotten that have been reasonably priced per se were for RSV.

Traipsing around Manhattan today.

Astor exchanged a corked bottle of 2015 Foreau Sec I bought last year with a bottle of the 2014, which is what they have in stock now. Kudos to them and their acknowledgement also that, yes, the bottle was viciously corked.

Before that at Manhattan Wine Co, I couldn’t resist a sample bottle of the latest disgorgement of Robert Moncuit Les Grands Blancs while picking up another 2018 Guimaro Camino Real and dropping off a case for storage.

Random find at a LWS ($150 and $110 respectively), too bad they had so little and limits 1 bottling per customer. All gone in 1 day :cry:
