These are wines that you should let sleep, the less expensive wines from the previous installments are supposed to help you with that! Just to refresh your memory, here are links to the previous episodes of this ongoing saga.

With such a limited budget, it’s very difficult to really cover all of one’s bases and so I’ve tried to keep this as balanced as possible. Following this plan won’t fill your cellar with all the great wines of the world, but it certainly is a mighty fine place to start! Just a heads up, most of these wines fall on the rather traditional side of the style spectrum which is of course my preference. If you generally find that you prefer wines that are particular powerful, rich and oaky, this list may not be for you.
