WTT: Your Chave Rouge for my ???

I’ve been bitten by the Chave bug…and I’d like to have a few more bottles than the six or so bottles I have. I have a variety of wines that I’d be happy to trade, Burgundy, Barolo, or other. I do have a few bottles of Richebourg in particular that I think may be of interest to someone that also likes Chave. Please PM what vintages and # of bottles of Chave Rouge if you think this may be of interest for you.

Thanks, Kirk

Ps. I’ve had positive trades with Brian Stotter, TBurklow, Tim F, & Doug Schulman here in the forum.

Bottle of ‘91 for your eternal soul and a shipping label?

At the risk of being put on suspension for commenting on pricing, an eternal soul for 1991 Chave is cheap.

What would you trade to me for Mark’s?

You aren’t kidding. Wow. Mine are all drunk up, but I bought a case on release that were marked down because of a bad Parker score. Seems like the market has recognized the quality of the vintage.

I understand the sentiment but please watch your language.

And besides, I am too attached to my eternal soul to trade it for Chave. Someone else’s eternal soul, I am happy to trade.

I’m with you Sir…but it’s always worth checking the market value. :slight_smile:

What Barolo do you have?

PM me burgs - i will PM back chaves

Out of curiosity, what era Chaves are you looking for?

I’ve already secured enough 2017 & 2018, but anything before that.

I think for me, the important part of a trade is that both parts feel like it’s fair, and whenever possible it’s preferable if both sides feel like they got a deal. If it’s not possible, it’s not a good trade in my mind.

The best wine dinner I had in 2020 (granted there weren’t many) was a 1991 Northern Rhone horizontal. Chave was wine of the night followed by La Landonne and La Mouline. Jamet showed great. Gentaz was a disappointing bottle. Ogier was the surprise of the night. So good!

funny you say this. Iv feel like all my dinners recently are dominated by Rhones. We had 4 guys the Thursday before the blip and wine of the night was 90 Rayas. Followed by a 91 Gentaz.
