opened up a 2011 The Prisoner, always enjoyable.

Kopped a EuroCave. Nothing fancy but proper wine storage. Now I need to stock it. I am fan of Peppoli and Seventy Five Cabernet for everday consumption, but need a few more under $20's to round the not feel bad if wife and I don't finish the bottle stuff. Best suggestions?

what are some stores we can pick from?

Bought a bottle of a Loire Valley red with the absurd name Gama-Sutra. Was told that it was a natural wine, which was confirmed the instant I opened the bottle. B.O. funk, which only partly blew off over the course of the bottle. Not terrible, but more interesting than delicious.

I am on Long Island, but can order from Sherry, Garnett or any online place. Has anyone ordered from Leukens in Florida? Prices seem great.

lots of good Bachelet and Drouhin that would be great right now but even better after a few years.

er, so wait until Manton gets his stash, then go in and pillage.
post #17184 of 18063
No Bachelet in his price range anyways (I wish, I'd be first in line to pillage it), so it's probably not a problem.

Drouhin Cote de Beaune is though, and that's a wine that is awesome with a little age on it.

I need to see if I can source some of that locally this weekend.

that's the wine that Slew says buy a case of and stick it away. In 5+ years, it'll be a delicious tasting Burg with a touch of age that was purchased for under $20.
post #17188 of 18063
Yep!
post #17189 of 18063
I did notice that, and it reminded me of David's recommendation.

Now I just gotta convince the wife to let me buy some more wine. Also, find a place to lay it down for a while... frown.gif

They certainly sell Champagne in grocery stores in US and quite honestly those Champagne wines belong next to potatoes and Heintz ketchup.
