Perhaps we made a mistake not bothering to assemble a "cellar" of French wines while we were in Paris. It was one of those decisions made by default, a function of not enough time, expertise, and willingness to figure out both the customs issues and where physically to put it all upon our re-entry.
I enjoy wine and I do think I've gotten better about figuring out what I like and don't like, what's worth paying extra for, and what's worth passing by altogether. Yet while I'm scarcely a snob, I really can't imagine bringing these bottles to the register.
If you know differently, let me know. I'm always on the lookout for a good value.
