Lanessan for sure. Laplagnotte-Bellevue, maybe du Retout.

Just worried about Lanessan because I heard Rolland is being consulted for the '15 vintage now, so he might turn it modern.

Don't know, haven't had one in a while but I liked the older ones.

Simmard is a cut above all those, though.

09s and 10s should still be fairly easy to find at or near release price then you don't have to worry about 15s.

Montus is a great wine but Jesus does it need a ton of time.

I'd be curious to hear your appreciation of the various Château Simard vintages - I've got a couple of bottles in hiding, ranging from 1996 to 2010. I'm guessing some of 'em will be pretty drinkable by now.

Got a notification that 2 bottles of La Rata are allocated for me. Excellent
post #20244 of 20660
I also received a notification that 2 bottles of La Rata are allocated for me. Excellent x 2.

I never win shit.

Therefore, I think everybody should be receiving their requested allocations.
post #20245 of 20660
Did you guys get it last year?
post #20246 of 20660
This La Rata is my first Full Pull order.
post #20247 of 20660
I got 2 bottles as well, this is my first 'confirmed' Full Pull order.
post #20248 of 20660
Also my first confirmed order.
post #20249 of 20660
Oh nice!

How long should I cellar them? 2013 is waaaaay to young to drink anything.
