A new cooling unit for the Vintage Keeper Frown . Mine baked out after nearly 14 years of faithful service.

BIG thanks and props to aav28 for stepping up and helping me make arrangements for the right replacement unit PDQ. Winner < 24 hours and bottles were back in their comfy cool bin locales. Smile

14 years seems like a relatively long life - with a track record like that, it would be worthy of being considered as a replacement unit IMO. What make and model did you go with?

I jumped on 3 2005 Quinault l'Enclos I saw go by in an offer.

I kept the storage unit and racking, just replacing the cooling unit.

Original was a Vintage Keeper 044 MINI KOOL model AZMIN circa 1999. The replacement cooling unit is a Nuvo. Installation was fairly smooth.

I've kept in in the basement (relatively cool) and fairly full so it didn't have to work too hard. That may have helped make it last.

I read about this in the CdR thread under Tasting Notes. So I went out in search of the Bila-Haut. I found two different bottles though, one was Bila-Haut Occultem Lapidem and the other was just Bila-Haut Cote du Roussillon. I wonder which one Board-O and DoktaP were referring to? I ended up just picking up the Bil-Haut Cote du Roussillon.

They are both really good for the money, but the Lapidem is better IMO.

Thanks! I will give that one a try as well. I think it was $15 for the normal Bila Haut and $25 for the Lapidem.

$11 and $19 in SoCal, but I would still buy both at your prices. Quality juice and while the Lapidem drinks well now, I think it could improve a little with age.

Sad times...

The QPR on the Bila-Haut label really is amazing.
