HOW the F is it possible that all the Chave is sold out at 8:31????????????????

why bother lcbo? 

I was surprised. Limit of 1 and I saw at least 57 bottles of the red and 52 of the white.

Why wasn't this a lottery? It sure seemed like it would be when it said "Offer closes Sept 6th". Definitely BS.

I thought the same thing, so I wasn't rushing to the computer.  Absurd.  

I expect nothing from these low volume offers, then I'm not disappointed when when I get nothing.  It's a bonus if I get any bottles.  Still - the KGBO handling of them BLOWS CHUNKS.  Low volume is one thing, not getting adequate notice is another.  Email notices should go out a week ahead, not at random times the morning of... that's a no brainer - but that would imply some collective brains among those running the program. 

What do you guys think of the big sales on semwkene  right now at lcbo? Alot of crap but I bought some freemark Abby tonight at $52 a bottle, about $17 off

Did someone say that the KGBO sucks?  They are offering the 2008 Ch Montrose for $278 in the September 2018 Classics release.  Fortunately I bought it from them in July 2012 for $97.

Now how is a gov'mint supposed to make a living if they don't raise prices a little from time to time????

Best part is it's exactly the same wine from exactly the same stock that they couldn't sell out at the lower price.  That's one hell of a storage surcharge.

anyone know anything about the Cote Rotie being offered?

if you're referring to the Tardieu Laurent, I'm a buyer at that price given the vintage. Don't expect to drink it for 10+ years though.

the J.L Chave Crozes-Hermitage 2016 at $30 a bottle sounds reasonably good.
