That is not a good price for the Produttori normale. The 2014 was $39 here and the 2015 is currently available for $42.

Of course that pales compared to the $516 they want for the 2011 Solaia.

Some the South African whites interest me if I can remember to order on the day they are made available.

Thanks Steve - yikes!  Add $9 to the KGBO price and get the Riserva Produttori at SAQ. 

 

The Muga, Brokenwood and Chamonix in July are probably worth a pick-up to me. 

The Laherte Freres rose de saignee, Finca YGay, Bikandi Vendimia and David & Nadia (Sadie) are all worth a buy in August.

what about the 2015 Dominus????

$440?  Hard pass.   Dominus hasn't really been great since 2002 (some might say earlier).

I will go with Diamond Creek any day~ 

$440 is insane. The last vintage I bought was 2010 and it was $151 CAD when first offered at the KGBO. (It was later offered at $171.)  How the hell does the price TRIPLE in five years?

So, the Muga went quickly today, holy sh*t.  I was in the system by 8:31 and it was gonzo.  

Check again... 12 available as of now

What about this for $64??

Maison Roche De Bellene Collection Bellenum Gevrey-Chambertin Villages 2000

I found early vintages of Roche de Bellene to be quite variable, with some real disappointments, so I stopped buying them.   I'm not 100% if this bottling is when he was buying up earlier vintage wines from other producers and relabeling to launch his brand.   

 

The Prado sold out immediately.  (I think I only been to buy this wine once or twice over the years).   Only picked up the Paleo.

Not surprising that the Prado Enea goes so fast.  Great for the price.  I had a bottle of the 1970, in 2017 that was stunning, showing its potential for longevity.   Still holding a few 2005's and 2009's of this.  

 

I was busy and didn't log on until 8:35. It showed 3 bottles of the Prado still available but when I added them to my cart it said the Prado was unavailable. I refreshed the page a few times, and each time it showed a different quantity available - 2, 3, 5 - and each time it wouldn't let me add them to my cart... until about 8:40 when I was finally able to secure 2 bottles and check out.

Doesn't it suck when you have a business meeting at 8:30?  I've missed more Classics that way than I've been able to ordered in. 

Grabbed some Paleo (thanks to Paul & Rick for that visit), Muga, and a bottle each of the 2016 whites - Cantina Tramin Stoan Bianco & Rotem & Mounir Saouma Inopia.  They'll be pop and pour to check on.  Surprised there was no limit on the Muga, but am not complaining.  My order went through at 8:32 and about 20 bottles of Muga still showed as available; that said, surely they were all gone as orders were in the process of CC approval.

For August, am tempted by the Araujo (Eisele) Sauv Blanc.  It's expensive, it's racy, but it is so delicious.  Will see what the bank account looks like then.

We had some Michel Gassier Costières-de-Nîmes Lou Coucardie Blanc a few years ago and liked it a lot.  southern Rhone blend.  Gonna try to get more.

Ah shite. I forgot the ordering started on the 1st and the David & Nadia I wanted to get is sold out.

Hopefully the SAQ will get some.

2013 Elvio Cogno Barolo Bricco Pernice

I tried to make an appointment with them recently and was told that I wasn't important enough to be served their best barolos.  This will show'em…  

Has anyone received their Orders yet? I haven’t even received the final receipt indicating shipping... going on 3 weeks now... absolute disaster the LCBO lately... I guess lately more then usually...

Mine arrived last week, but I haven't picked it up yet.

Mine too.  Delay was slightly longer than normal but only by a few days I thought. 

My June Classics order never showed up at all! Called in and after investigating, they determined it was lost and my money will be refunded. But of course no chance I'll get any of the wine that is now sold out.

I'm also surprised there is no sign yet of the Sept Catalogue. It'll be going on sale in two weeks!

Was at our office today and saw the Sept/Oct issue on my bosses desk.

I didn't get a chance to look at it, but it should be circulating soon.

I called HelloLCBO and they had no idea when the catalogue would be available either. The person I spoke with said, "It will probably be included in the weekly Thursday email," which it wasn't.

It's ridiculous that the catalog isn't available yet.

This happened to me as well with a Chave Hermitage order 3-4 years ago. Heartbreaking. 

So the physical printed catalog has been mailed, but the digital version is still MIA?

I haven't received my copy in the mail yet. Anyone else?
