Wine Budget July 2010 to July 2011

Thinking of my wine purchases for the next 12 months
Jul 6, 2010

I have approximately $3,200 budgeted for wine for the next 12 months. I have a few ideas.

Here's what I came up with after checking the prices on Wine Spectator.com's Wine Ratings Search and availability via other Internet searches. Hmm? I guess I can change the lists either way. My larger list is a little over budget. Guess I will leave a bottle of the Terlano out or something?

 

Option 1

$3,200    1 bottle of 2009 Le Pin futures

 

Option 2

$378       6 bottles Jacquesson Brut Champagne Cuvée nº 733 NV

$210       6 bottles  2009 Domaine Tempier Bandol Rosé

$120       6 bottles 2008 Terlano Pinot Bianco Alto Adige Classico

$222       6 bottles 2006 Schiopetto Tocai Friulano Collio

$138       6 bottles 2008 Christian Moreau Père & Fils Chablis

$138       6 bottles 2008 Terredora Greco di Tufo Loggia della Serra

$180       6 bottles 2008 Merry Edwards Sauvignon Blanc RRV

$138       6 bottles 2008 Domaine du Vissoux Les Trois Roches

$210       6 bottles 1998 Château La Pointe Pomerol

$675       3 bottles 1998 Château La Mission-Haut-Brion

$360       3 bottles 2001 Vieux-Château-Certan Pomerol

$450       3 bottles 1970 Warre Vintage Port

$3,219 Total

 

(I hope you get the point of this blog. I could have chosen many other wines. I just made the above list "off the top of my head." But $3,200 buys you a lot of great wine that is available in the marketplace right now! And I will probably spend a lot more.)
