Not at all rare and inexpensive at around US$ 200 you say? Dear Sir, I wonder>February 5 2005 at 6:14 PM

Response to Vega Sicilia
what you consider to be expensive.
We speak about Spain and the wines of Spain are usually quite inexpensive in contrary to some Crus of Bordeaux.
I think that US$ 200 for a bottle of wine is for most people "expensive". Maybe not for the happy few being able to pay this price for a daily bottle.
No harm meant but I thought to bring us all down to earth again.
PS This is by no means the meaning that I want to belittle the Vega Sicilia, in contrary. The wine is absolutely top and of a great and rich flavour. Should be BTW for this price.
