    I am seeing the same. And, it seems as though there are probably more price rises coming.

    Lots of village reds are over $50 and I can’t bring myself to buy them, either out of remembrance of what they used to go for or against the fact that there’s decent American pinot kicking around for considerably less.
    46 SF for LeFDlaive bourgogne? Psycho. But on the whole, most of the ward belongs to the red prices increases. Why is that?
    For example for a white village just one oak branch this side of a chablis, we like AuVigue’s Macon villages.

    Fortunately there’s a few of the less popular producers like D. Laurent or F. Magnien who make excellent 1er’s in the range of $50-60.
