    Burgundy lei......of course........I love it.

    There are some cult wines as well such as Harlan Estate from Napa Valley. Now that is one nice smooth wine but a little to ex for my wallet. There is a wine importer only brings in 30-50 bottles a year. Price? A cool $1,000 a bottle.......

    Only manage to drank once........

    That kind of wine are for immortals. I only a mortal. Rather spend on camera stuff with $1000. At least they last longer. Wine drink already, 'boh liao'.

    Just drink, make merry and shoot happily.

    I like Pinot Noirs esp the NZ styles. Anyone can share how the old world ones from France taste like?

    How many of us here attend tastings and wine dinners? (I dont go wine dinners, too ex for me)

    Ex loh. $80 to $120 for a decent wine is too much.

    although "$80 to $120 " was a bit ex. but it was really worth it ... cox it frm Burgundy "the King world of wine".... just like last time i have bought 1 redwine "Baron" frm Bordeaux it cost me ~$90 ... but the taste ... oak...full body ... dry ..deep red colour... ... really good... ...u see for the Ice wine / Frozen wine for 350L normally can cost up to $100 ++ alr... so when u compare the price of the wine frm Burgundy and Ice wine frm Canada the Burgundy one was alot worth than the Ice wine (somemore the Ice wine not frm Germany)..... of course this was my opinion only ..

    crystal is at valleypoint, on river valley. if you want to go let me know, i got discount there.

    80-120 i guess is considered quite ex by some standards, but thats the problem with burgundy.... with really good burgundy reaching quite stratospheric prices, anything decent in the 100 dollar range considered quite a bargain.
