Blast from the fairly recent past - 2008 Benchmark pricing

Hello all, I have appreciated posts from others about wine prices and catalogs from decades ago, so I have decided to share some highlights from a price guide from Benchmark, June 24, 2008. I found some printed out sheets in my basement. Note it was about 16 pages long, just sharing highlights here....

Fabulous info from David, Howard, John, Don, Kris, as usual. This is really potentially an extremely broad topic because as David points out it depends on where you start.

Re: TN: 2014 Baudry La Croix Boissee Chinon Blanc

What is the oldest vintage of Boisee Blanc? Bernard started the winery in 1975. The current vines if I recall correctly were planted 20-25 years ago? My general sense (having only tasted recent vintages) is the wine is one which will gain in expression for 10-15 years and then tail off but of course...

Me personally I see another leg down but then that will be a great entry both short and mid term to go long equities.
