What’s your “definite buy” in 2020?

#1 Post by Sc0tt F!tzger@ld » December 27th, 2019, 5:35 pm

Interested in what folks will definitely be buying in 2020.

I’ll start: 2008 Taittinger Champagne Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs Brut

This. Continuing to try to reduce my cellar size and overall spending, but increasing cost per bottle.

Specifically: more champagne, CA and FR syrah, aged burgundy, Brunello and Barolo, and lots more white since that is what my sweet little wife is enjoying now.

Even though I’d like to say nothing, I’ll almost definitely buy some Goodfellow (Chardonnay, White blend, Riesling), Thomas, and Walter Scott (Chardonnay and Aligote). Depending on how the tariff nonsense works out, Olga Raffault, C & P Breton, Bernard Baudry, and as yet determined producers of German Riesling and Champagne.

Will definitely buy Belgian beer - Cantillon, 3 Fonteinen, Orval, Westmalle, etc.

At a freshly-turned 54 and a very full “cellar,” this is exactly where I need to be. No more new releases of wine that really take 15+ years, which is much of what I buy, minus those delish Cru Bojos that I slurp down as babies even knowing that they can age gracefully. I bought no 2015 or 2018 Bordeaux and just a smaller amount of 2016.

My tough choice will be my allocations of things like Gonon, Benetiere, Vatan, etc. And stuff that isn’t quite so allocated but I love immensely, like Levet and Baudry. I actually have more Levet and Baudry than I might need, if I used my little brain. I’ll not let Gonon go for a variety of reasons, one of which is, so many vintages are actually damn good in their youth, unlike a Levet, that can be hard as nails.

This is my goal, too. The only specific wines at the moment are 2015 Produttori Riservas. Probably Paje, Montefico, Asili and maybe Montestefano. Also, some 2008 Champagne.

Yep, that's us for sure. We're rapidly approaching 50, with more wine than we will be able to drink. We stopped buying Bordeaux in any quantity many years ago (separate decisions, since we weren't married yet), stopped Barolo/Barbareso with 2013, stopped red burgundy (except things like Savigny or Irancy) after 2012. We, too, still buy a few select cru beaujolais for medium term aging, and will keep a couple of verticals going. But even in Champagne and Germany, it's only a few producers we'll buy yearly.

Age and a full cellar have me on wine probation for the coming year. I’m going to try to keep it to no more than one case for the cellar. I’ve already got half of that allocated to 08 Taittinger Comtes, so not a great start.

I adore new world Pinot and there are 4 that I'm lucky enough to be on the mailing list and every year I buy as much as I can afford. Number 1 is Rochioli "small block". It took me 12 years to make the list and I will buy as much as I'm offered. Earlier this year I was offered 6 different cuvees for a total of 24 bottles. Second would be Kutch. I adore Jamie's wines and find him to be a world class gentleman! Third is Rivers-Marie. Usually offered 2 cases of the single vineyard and adore all, especially the Old Vine Summa. Finally is Littorai...a bit pricey for my budget, but worth the sacrifice.

Comtes, as many have said. The 16s from the Barolo producers I buy, as I think it’s a very good vintage.
Otherwise, I can’t think of anything that’s a “must buy” given the combination of tariffs and my view of the recent vintages in France.

I've winnowed my mailing list purchases to a couple of boxes of mixed Carlisle (heavy on the white wines), 1 box of mixed Cayuse, 3 Quilceda Creek cabs, a few bottles from Betz, a box or so of mixed Walter Hansel (mostly Chardonnay), and a case of two Tablas Creek Rhone whites for summer quaffers.

In addition I have been trying to increase my vintage champagne inventory and am keeping an eye out for '08 Dom and Taittinger Comtes.

Finally I will likely pick up a few CdP and domestic pinots on an opportunistic basis.

Why in 2021 or 2022 do you think the tariffs are temporary?

Trying to buy less young wine and more old. Practically had to re-mortgage this year after stocking up on 2017 Burgundies for my daughter's birth year. But producers I am looking to buy more of in 2020 include:

- Saint-Charmant (Champagne)
- Gonon
- Bel Air Marquis d'Aligre
- Older Bordeaux, esp. Figeac, Montrose, Pichon Lalande
- Philip Togni Cabernet
- Bernard Faurie
- Cédric Bouchard
- Lafarge

I am well past Robert A.'s freshly turned 54 so my buying is even more restrictive. Assuming there is no 100% tariff on wine from Europe, my plan is similar to Sarah's. I am buying old world wines with 10 years or more age on them. I do buy some that are younger and less expensive to have as daily drinkers. Most of those come from Spain and Italy. And I am always buying Champagne when I can get it at the right price. I buy very few new world wines and I am only on one wine list now - Thomas PN. On occasion I buy a couple of bottles of Quilceda Creek from my nephew's allotment.

2018 is the best vintage for Napa since 2013 and perhaps only behind 2013, 2002, 1991 and 1974. You can throw a dart.

Berserker Day stuff of interest, including those damn Flannery steaks.
German Riesling, especially more GGs. Want to backfill more 2015s in particular (wedding anniversary).
Champagne (Cedric Bouchard, Vilmart, want to explore other producers).
Anything else that piques my interest, including old world wines (Spanish and Tuscan in particular) with 10-15+ years of age on them to see if I'd like to diversity my collection more.

2018 is the best vintage for Napa since 2013 and perhaps only behind 2013, 2002, 1991 and 1974. You can throw a dart.
2018 was across the board spectacular. I think 2019 will be very interesting, too.
