I've seen some stores start to clear inventory with 30% discounts again recently. (They stopped doing this before the Christmas season.) Some of the wines I have picked up over the past week are:

2004 Tawse Chardonnay Robyn's Block @$33 (reg $48)
2004 Ch Grand Puy Lacoste @$48 (reg $69)
2004 Ch Bellegrave @$31 (reg $45)
2004 Bouchard Volnay Caillerets @$43 (reg $62)
2005 Vincent Sauvestre Corton-Marechandes @$40 (reg $58)
2004 Vasse Felix Heytsbury Cabernet Sauvignon @$40 (reg $58) - I actually only paid $25 for this due to a pricing error
2004 Burge Family Olive Hill @$30 (reg $44)
2001 Quercetto La Corte @$49 (reg $59)

Thank-you for pointing that out. I backed the truck up today. Smile

It was a buy at $75, in my opinion. A steal at $60! Really, really great stuff.

Thanks for the heads up! This is one of the very few local wines that I like. I picked up a few bottles this afternoon.

Which stores have them on sale? I was in Sherwood Forrest this afternoon and they knew nothing about it. They scanned the Volnay and the Heytsbury and the regular prices came up.

Would love to pick some up. Thanks.

Some of these markdowns are done at the store level. I bought the Tawse and several others at the Dupont St store.

Has anyone been to the learance / outlet centre in Toronto just south of the 401. I've been there a couple of times but pricings have been only okay.

I went there once about 4 years ago. Waste of time.

However, if you want to hear another reason why the LCBO should be privatised, ask someone why the clearance centre is located at Rexdale Blvd instead of Ajax as originally planned.

I second that question... in both Vintages.com and LCBO.com there is nothing showing these special prices.
I'm looking mainly for the 2004 Ch Grand Puy Lacoste @$48.
Any advice... Advanced thanks, Gaby.

The Grand Puy Lacoste was one of the in-store markdowns I referred to above. It would not show up on their search pages.

Unfortunately I have to give up too! Big Grin I was told the story a couple of years ago, but now I can't remember the sordid details any more. However, it did have the usual wretched plot involving some kind of personal monetary gain by one of our politicians. Are you surprised? (naturally, what else would you expect?)

Meanwhile, speaking of monetary gain, I found another in-store markdown...

2004 Ch Beausejour Duffau @ $48 (reg $69)

Thanks again.

I'd be surprised if that was true, but I would not be surprised if it was put there for votes or some other political benefit. In fact, I'd be surprised if it wasn't....

They have 8 bottles at the First Canadian Place store, but they're all scanning at $65.

Your belief in the honesty of our politicians is touching. Big Grin However, the story I was told did involve some money being made from either the sale or leasing of land/retail facilities. I can assure you there were no votes obtained by moving the store to the vicinity of Rexdale Blvd and the 401.

They appear to only have three left so back up soon Smile

It appears Dominus has arrived as well...there was a dozen or so case out in the back that I could see...no prices yet though.

A magnum of the 2003 Alion in the Queen's Quay store for $160 (or $180 I can't remember) OWC.

Maybe not directly, but if someone made money or realized some other benefit because of it, I bet the politician responsible expected to see some downstream electoral gain: influence over other voters, campaign contributions, whatever.

Both the Chante Alouette and the Dominus were at the DuPont street (spadina) store. The Dominus was stacked up in the back storage area ......enroute to the washroom in the back.

The 2003 Alion was at the Queen's Quay large stand alone store (not the one in the mall with Loblaws). It is standing in the rear just before you get into the newly constructed vintages area. There are a couple of Champagne and australian mags along side it.

Was at the Bayview store this afternoon and found the 2003 Charles Melton Shiraz. Charles Melton is a solid producer and their shiraz is very good QPR at $25. If you like Aussie shiraz, this is one is a definite try.
