Re: So, Jeff, what futures are you buying for yourself?

Jeff, I've been consulting the site for a while but this is my first post. I'm wondering what you might recommend from this vintage for someone who likes Right Bank wines well enough but who has a preference for the Left, especially Pauillac and Pessac-Léognan. I'm still building my collection and m...

Re: So, Jeff, what futures are you buying for yourself?

Jeff, been reading the site for a while but this is my first post. I'm beginning to build a collection and am considering buying from the 2015 futures. You listed Right Bank wines above, but I'm wondering if you would recommend Left Bank wines for someone in my position who has a slight preference f...
