Hio dan and welcome to the board. The more pertinant question is " Do you like Leoville and do you have good enough storage to keep the wine correctly for the 10 or so years until it matures and you can drink it?" If you bought it as an investment then my answer is " Stocks are for investing, wine is for drinking ".WW

ww stole my line, of course...

But daniel, if you intend the investment to be your taste buds, be warned that 2003 was not a normal vintage and a lot of Bordeaux has been written about as atypical. I haven't tasted the Loeville, so all I can say is good luck. Tell you the truth: this fellow does not understand buying wine on futures without first tasting it--don't care what critics and writers say; I need to taste for myself.
