Just got off the phone with Vintages and, you guessed it, my options are to keep the wine or return it and get my money back. To make matters worse, they insisted that the vintage I ordered from VSO was the 2009 and not the 2010 and that if the VSO site stated it was the 2010, then that was a mistake.

Sooo, am I crazy or did others order and receive the 2010 vintage??? Mad

Those may indeed be the only options they will give you. But the 6 bottles I received from VSO are the 2010 vintage of Chante Le Merle Vieilles Vignes. (I went and double checked before posting.)

So whoever you spoke to at Vintages doesn't know what they are talking about. Is that a surprise? Bang

Just checked...got the 2010. Do you have an invoice with the vintage...not that it would change any minds.

I have an invoice but for "some reason" the vintage date is illegible.

Bruce,

You could log onto VSO and look at your order history. Print out the invoice from there and see what it reads.

Thanks. Just did that and, sure enough, it states 2010.

In the end, it doesn't matter as the Vintages person confirmed that the wine is sold out. I guess I'll return the 2009. Have been spending more than I should lately, so returning this will help.

2009 Antinori Solaia is currently $200 at my LCBO and the 2009 Sassicaia is $140.

Might be pulling the trigger on these.

2009 Sassicaia is a beauty and at $140 a steal! IWC(Tanzer) gave it 97 points and Suckling gave it 98! I would buy more Sassicaia and pass on the Solaia.


Going where the water tastes like wine

Chard, once you purchase the bottles you want, perhaps you might want to consider releasing the store details so that others on this board can at least be aware of which stores in the London area employ this practice (i.e. store level markdowns) as I'm sure not all do so.

-l'Avion
-Reininger Ash Hollow syrah
-Ravenswood Belloni zin
-Parable shiraz
-Testament shiraz
-Onkaparinga grenache

And even ports!

The 08 L'Avion Roussanne has dropped below $30 now. And still has far to go! Ack

Thanks dude. I could care less about what's being sold in London myself but am not one to refuse qualified backup.

Not quite sure to what degree this is an alert. Noticed today at Weston and 401:

San Fabiano Calcinaia Cerviolo 2006 to $35 down from $50 (which seems like an insane ripoff to begin with) - bought none, probably ~ 6 left on the shelf

Terrabianca Croce CC Riserva 2007 down to $20 from $28 - bought 2, maybe 4 or 5 left on the shelf

There might be a single bottle of 2006 San Filippo Lucere BdM down to $35 from $50 but no promises.
