And the prices on the MSD 1er Bussieres are even worse.
Both used to be sub-$40, not long ago.
There's always more wine.

Yeah, but I'm 27 with less than 200 bottles in the cellar... it's going to be a long painful road of wine buying for me over the next 50 years.

I'm having a lot of fun exploring the many non-mainstream Italian wines. Still many bargains to be had.
