    If you're wanting to get serious about collecting and storing, EuroCave is my top rec. It's $$$ but great customer service/warranty and I've been more than satisfied with mine. I've also got an off-site locker but that's really only necessary once you hit 20+ cases and are receiving wine consistently through the year IMO.

    I have the de negoce 66 and 68 coming next week. Going to give a few away for Christmas presents for work and write it off as a business expense if my accountant will let me.

    Was actually looking at the euro cave yesterday as we are about to get started building. What’s another 3k. Woof.

    Last bottle mystery boxes came in. Pretty happy with the results-especially on the $180. Have had Sandhi and Lutum before and enjoyed them.

    Old boss did it and still does to the best of my knowledge. You can’t do it anymore after the changes a couple of years ago. He decided to just risk that he wouldn’t get audited.

    This 2011 Antinori Guado al Tasso is good. Really good.

    It has a hint of green pepper and spice that reminds me of St. Julien. Maybe it’s the cool vintage but definitely more like BDX than CA. It’s my first time drinking one but I had been led to believe it was more ripe than most old world cab based blends (57% CS, 25% Merlot, 15% CF & 3% PV).

    Not Burgundy, but 2015 cru Beaujolais is hitting the spot for me lately. I also dove into one of my Arnot-Roberts Gamay, but that needs more time me thinks.

    I don’t know Les Deux Terres but I always recommend the village of Volnay as the best value in red burgundy. It’s not cheap but much less than peers of a similar high pedigree.
