the prices at PerSe seem to be jacked for anybody who wants to drink wines from France, Italy, USA, Australia, Germany, Austria, and South America.
I remember discussing this with you, then I got excited because I found a good wine at a good price that's very good with a variety of food. The Lapierre Morgon in magnum for just over $200. This is a great find.
