Our Wine Bucket List

Posted: 12/10/11 07:35 AM ET

Lately there have been an awful lot of news stories suggesting that not only is the year rapidly coming to a close, but the world itself is about to end.

According to some reports, the Mayan calendar stops in 2012, and that means the Earth and all its inhabitants are done for. Obviously.

Yes the doomsday scenarios are a bit of a buzzkill, but the silver lining to this macabre story is we can now turn to our wine bucket lists, and start pouring with reckless abandon. If the countdown is on, then corkscrew, don't fail us now!

Of course, we have a bit more faith that the world will keep turning, but it's a fun to mull over what we'd like to be swilling as we slide into our eternal resting place.

Yes, these pricey, legendary bottles are luxurious, ostentatious and maybe even ridiculous, but should the sky start falling, these are the wines we're reaching for.

The prices listed are the averages across Canada. Depending on where you live you may be able to save a bit -- or even pay a bit more.
