Wine Fair (2): CARREFOUR INTERNATIONAL WINE FAIR (23 May - 1 Jun 2008)

Went down on Monday to view the selections available at the Carrefour Wine Fair at Suntec City.
Similar to previous setups with the French wines to the left and the other countries' wines to the right. Several nice selections of wines, of which to my interest were 2005s.

Chateau la tour Carnet 2005 $69.90
L'esprite de chevalier 2005 $48
Chateau Carbonnieux 2005 $89
Chateau Talbot 2005 $158
Connetable Talbot (2nd wine of Chateau Talbot) 2005 $98

Number of reasonable 750ml Sauternes too.

Chateau Guiraud 1998 $99
Chateau le Dauphin de Guiraud (2nd wine of Chateau Guiraud) 2004 $39.90
Chateau Solon Sauternes 1999 $35

They even had these in the store itself.

Ch Brillette Magnum 2005 $97
Ch L'enclos 2005 $88
Ch D'yquem 1997 $299 (350 ml bottle)
Surprise! Surprise! I did not buy any bottles during this visit, though I was tempted to. With the increasing costs of petrol, ERP and even rice, wine has become somewhat of a luxury in my budget. Therefore till the inflation starts to moderate, my wine purchasing habits will moderate too.
