How long can you go till you buy wine in 2021?

Buzz is already out. I’m holding steady so far though tempted twice. Confess in this thread when your holdout breaks and you succumb to your first 2021 purchase.

Heck yea. 37 hours in and no buying. I might make it to Monday. 2019 Burgundy is going to break me though.

Whenever Maybach releases, that’s the day. I’ll try to hold out until then, but, who am I kidding, it’ll be well before that...

Jan 1st I bought some Chablis because I waited all month of December. I vowed not to buy wine in December (except for 4 bottles of Champagne I got for gifts).

So far so good, though I'm not counting the order placed in December which will be paid for this month, since the weakness occurred last year.

I’m not counting my order on Dec. 31, 11:55 pm.

That means I’m good for at least another few minutes.

So is this a test to see how long each of us may remain the master of our own domaine? If so, so far I have refrained from indulging.

Some. Also some 2018s (all Willi Schaefer) :D

I'm also looking to backfill on 2015s this year, as this is our wedding anniversary and when doing inventory on CT I noticed I don't have nearly enough.

My most recent purchase was a case of Champagne last Sunday and it arrived on Wednesday, so I'm still good. I have a few things I plan to buy, though.
