Some of you may have seen that I asked a question on Vintage Plans and whether these are worthwhile laying down. As part of this @Brocklehurstj suggested that there might be merit in a thread talking around bottles under the £20 mark which still might be worthwhile storing for a few years.
As I’m at the start of my journey, and noting that many members seem to have evolving tastes over their wine journey, I’m not precious on what these are. There are few wines that I dislike, although the Supermarket bargain bin sharp, cheap whites initially put me off white for a number of years before joining TWS and trying a different price bracket.
I also noticed from looking on the Berry Bros EP pages that there are Bordeaux’s for as cheap as £78 per case of 6. These seems remarkably cheap and I don’t imagine that these would be particularly viable to lay down, despite a score of 92/100.
In short I’d really appreciate suggestions for a ‘starter’ wine cellar with a handful of different bottles under the £20 mark which should get better with time in proportion (or greater) than the amount it will cost me to store. I’m open to any suggestions but would focus on TWS as I’d like to take advantage of their cellaring service.
