Wil we hear before the 72 hours is up - or will the LCBO take forever like they did with the bourbon lottery?

probably take a while... i was told there were over 35,000 entries for the bourbon allocation (that's per bottle) which caused the delay... i then said "surely the DRC lottery cant attract the same volume"... the rep at Vintages said that in fact does, sometimes even more.... i didn't think there was that many people interested in $1,000+ bottles of wine!

We had a DRC Grand Eschezeau at the Granite Club with a group of Forum winos a while back and it was definitely worth the ~$600 price tag.

Just placed my order, my wife’s and kid’s. Since 2002 vintage, I purchased, won, 2 Echezeauxs and 3 Grands Echezeauxs. No luck between 2008 and 2016. Don’t give up and keep on ordering. It’s fun and you don’t lose anything. I know I will be disappointed on Tuesday or Wednesday next week but I will forget about it next day until next year.

Nothing here. 0/6 including the friends/family that put in for me.

maybe I need to do more complaining about how it’s rigged so that I can get a Richebourg

I say it's rigged because on 3 separate occasions, I've had highly sought after bottles allocated to me only to learn there was a "clerical error" and the bottle was not in fact available.  Once is an accident but more than that, I suspect something is afoot and I have a similar name to someone high up in the KGBO or connected to a high up contact at the KGBO.
