In rare occasions (and this is a great scenario) you'll fine a small wine shop or liquor store that has a selection of older wine that no one has noticed tucked away from the public. A shop which once has a wine enthusiast buyer that purchased world class wines, but because of the stores location most of the business comes from selling booze and beer. In these rare occasions I have been able to find spectacular pricing on quality aged wines from around the world. I once purchased a bottle of 1990 Dom Perignon Rose for $100 this way and turned around and sold it on auction for $500!
