Wines I did not buy today

Or how I intend to spend your money this year

 


I don't know if you noticed my New Year's resolutions, but one of them was to stop buying wine for a year. At least wine for my cellar, so instead I'll be shopping for wine and then sharing what I find with you all so you can scoop up my really great deals!

I may not post things every day, but you can expect a steady stream of notable wine offers that I sift through ona daily basis to pique my interest, and make this list.

359 more days to go!

2006 Brunello

I'm a big fan of 2006 Brunellos, but I'm always looking for values here since I've found many higher priced wines that just don't deliver on the promise. The Chicago Wine Company is offering the 2006 Il Marroneto for a bargain price of $37.95. At this price I'd be a buyer, if I was buying wine. This wine sounds right up my alley.

2006 Il Marroneto Brunello di Montalcino

As usual I have zero affiliation with TCWC, just spreading the love.

Domaine Dublere at Flickinger 1/2/13

There are some attractive price reductions on the Dublere wines at Flickinger today.

I'd skip the whites and go straight to the reds, especially the magnums of 2010 Volnay.  These are great prices, 2010 Volnay 1er Pitures for $37! 2009 Charmes-Chambertin for $80! 

This is an email-only offering, so you'll have to give them a call at 847-920-5046 and get a copy of the email, and if you do here's what I'd buy if I were buying wine today.

I have no association with Flickingers whatsoever, except as a satisfied customer, and will not and have not received anything in exchange for this mention. All from the goodness of my heart folks.

 

2009 Dom. Dublere Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru $80
 
2009 Dom. Dublere Savigny Les Beaune 1er Cru Les Talmettes $29
 
2010 Dom. Dublere Savigny Les Beaune 1er Cru Les Talmettes $29
 
2010 Dom. Dublere Volnay 1er Cru Les Pitures $37
 
2010 Dom. Dublere Volnay 1er Cru Les Pitures (1.5 L) $80
 
2010 Dom. Dublere Volnay 1er Cru Taillepieds (1.5 L) $85

  • Dear GDP,

    I admire your courage & resolution.
    I would pair the Il Maroneto with fresh pata al duck ragu & Les Pitures with sweetbreads & wild mushrooms.
    Ok I'll buy both of them.
    ¡Salud¡

  • I think this is a great idea. Even better, auction/sell your services off each month quarter whatever, and be the gun for hire in various 'private' or restaurant cellars. If Bill Gates were your client, He'd give you guidance, then you'd spend your month/quarter what ever interval works for you testing buying, explaining, and push young Bill on splurging on those $500+ wines that are crazy talk for middle America. Say Emeril hires you to freshen up his wine selection for his restaurant, You write about the guidance, availability and profit margin, then go to Argentina for wines to compliment his Cajun menu. Finally, if dusty trails was your client, he'd set a price range, and you'd find solid values in that $10-$15, Maybe talk about turning his beer fridge in the garage into a 'trailer park' wine cellar. Then toward the end of the period you could push him to bust the Social Security budget, and spurge on that $29.95 monster Zinfandel of his dreams... It is tough writing fresh on a very exposed subject. Please don't review wines of murder victims, B-list movie stars, or Wall Street type hidden cellars whilst their in prison or Belize. You have always dreamed of a 'reality TV wine show' go for it good hunting -Dusty
