Is that the original cork or was it re-corked at some point?

Looks original from a very well stored bottle.

Well, I don't know about any of you, but I'm jealous.

Hi everybody,
Found this thread on the homepage so here I am:
I export wine from Italy: more in detail from Sicily and Tuscany, a large wide of typical italian wine, very caratheristic and 100% italian, i like to underline this fact to my clients.
I usually export to UK and Germany regarding the UE and i also have some clients in Japan: i mostly deal with deli shop, restaurants but also private clients who love discovering those wines that italian native know very well, but abroad are not so spreaded and it's a pity, so i offer to my clients, private gentlemen or businessmen the opportunity to buy all the typical italian products, meaning not just wine, directly from Italy, out of the usual brands pumped by the advertising and the political issues.
I like to have a direct contacts to my clients to make them feel they are really visting my country in a sort of friendship, that's why i love this forum.
Feel free to contact me anytime.
this is my skype contact: livingsprezzatura

Would have loved to see the color.

So, I'm looking for some better wines for special occasions. I can get these for relatively reasonable prices (i.e. about 20% below average).

2009 Cuvée du Vatican Réserve Sixtine
2007 Clos du Duc
2009 Gerard Bertrand La Forge
2005 Chateau Marbuzet St Estephe

So, these are all about 25-30€.
1) Any recommendations?
And more importantly, 2), even though the prices are good, would it be more reasonable to invest the money in some more mature wines? That is, are these wines "too young"?

Thanks for the help!

As it happens I had a 99 marbuzet last night and found it very approachable. Can't say that the 05 would be but I would take the risk.

What about the Châteauneuf-du-Papes?

@Matt: Not at the moment, but I see my parents just 4-6 times a year now, which is a special enough occasion for me! smile.gif

I love CdP. Vieux Telegraphe is a favorite.

I know very little about them

Ok, thank you. The Cuvée de Vatican gets decent reviews at CT (for what it's worth): http://www.cellartracker.com/wine.asp?iWine=963096 . Guess I'll give it a try.
