When I was in France in 2000 I was getting about 7.3, so not so long ago.


That was certainly my reading as well: that he was pricing them at PC. And, when I was last in France in June '01, the exchange rate was still >7 FF/$. Jean and I spent a month in France for $3K. Nowadays, that wouldn't get you more than a week, I'm afraid. Oh, for the Franc and the favorable exchange rate (I bought Dom. du Pegau in their cave for ~ 90 FF/btl -- those days are long gone!)

Aha! Never heard of Premier Cru the retailer before. Now it all makes sense (except for the high prices).
