Howard... I think you to compare 1990 Leoville Las Cases with 2010 Leoville Las Cases and not Cos d'Estournel. I think 1990 Las Cases is a better wine than 2010 Las Cases. But I'd rather have 2009 Cos d'Estournel than 1990 Cos d'Estournel. 09 Cos is better than 2010 IMO as well 86 Pichon Lalande is not my favorite Bordeaux wine. It's a hard, austere styled wine. I would not buy it for $50...

But if you cannot wait longer than you should, they are not a good merchant for you to buy from.
FWIW, 2010 Beausejour Duffau is one of the stars of the vintage and should be a legendary wine in the years to come.
