I've been ordering wines from JJ Buckley for about 3 years. A close friend recommended them and I've been very satisfied with both the price and selection from this wine merchant. My "sweet spot" in wine is Bordeaux, typically under $50 and JJ Buckley has these in some abundance. I highly recommend JJ Buckley, especially when you're looking for good value in Bordeaux.
