^^ no, in fact I'd recon this is a great way to buy. I used to seek out stuff from Skurkin and a number of others, and after Matt's praise I sought out a bunch of stuff from K-L. I enjoyed it enough, but more importantly I've found the stuff he imports really matches with what I look for in great wine (balance, poise, integration, structure as opposed to sheer strengh, fruit, ratings, etc.) and so naturally I seek more of it out. That Tavel is lovely, btw.
