2005 Bordeaux - Are Prices to High?
We've all heard of the quality coming out of Bordeaux in the 2005 vintage and I admit I have yet to taste anything from this hyped up new vintage. My question is when do we draw the line as consumers for how much we will spend on a top Brodeaux wine? The answer is clear when the lowest prices you can expect for a first growth in 05' exceed $1000. Are all the little guys being bought out by big rich millionaires who can scoop up 10 cases of Latour at that price? When will it be too much? All I can say is that the rich folk need to help with this situation and draw the line a little lower. That way people like me can afford maybe 1 or 2 bottles of a top vin.
