Hi all,
Here at 67 wine we are busy again, tasting all of the new things that you can enjoy this season. Happy school days, Happy high holy days, and all of that stuff!! A few gems crept into or back into our stock this week- including Domaine Tempier Bandol Rouge 2006. As Always, this is a pretty limited wine and somewhat hard to get a hold of. Saint Martin De La Garrigue Bronzinelle also came in, as did some Terres Falmes cinsault (which got a 89 pt score, not bad for a 12.99 wine!). Finally Lappiere Morgon is back on the shelf again, this is silk in a bottle- and one of my favorite wines in the world!!
So that is it for new things off the top of my head, however- I would like to make some general comments about the wine buisness. Today I sold a bottle of Pichon Lalande from 1975 in magnum, and two bottles of DRC Echezaux 2004 . . . In addition to the regulars, some barolo, a few cases of this and that . . . Granted; this was a pretty exceptional day, but there is some movement of things at the high end. I bring this up among a lot of doom and gloom in the market (both the wine market, and other markets!). I find this situation somewhat amazing due to the level of bottles we are able to sell. Thankfully, many of our suppliers are aware of the economic situation and willing to make some adjusments in your favor. This is great! It has allowed our customers to buy wines at a price that would be very low for many of the most high end wines in the world. I guess what I am really getting at is that it is clearly a buyers market for wine right now- some of our best and most interesting wines are at great prices!!
Thanks for reading, and I hope you are enjoying the start of the school year!
Ben
