Anyone try the 1996 Clos de Sarpe released yesterday? Think it's as bad as the 1995 they brought in around June this year?
Tried one on the weekend. Not dead, not over the hill, but not overly exciting...however the last glass was better, more aromatic and fuller, primarily because the fine sediment in the bottle got a little agitated, giving it more of an aroma and flavour of aged Bordeaux. I probably wouldn't get it again, but if I did I'd give it a shake before uncorking (not kidding).
On another note, grabbed a bottle of 2012 Pipeau because it was on sale for 10% off...I like Pipeau as an everyday drinker...don't judge! Anyway I wanted to pick up a case so I checked inventory yesterday, and the "Limited Time Offer" for the Pipeau and everything else in the offer indicated that it was available until November 26...great, no need for me to rush out yesterday to get it, as I thought it was only open until November 5. Went to get some today, and of course it was no longer on sale. Whichever of the multitude of useless LCBO fucktards who was responsible for updating the limited time offers updated the expiry date to November 26 but failed to update the list of wines, so everything listed yesterday as expiring on the 26th actually expired yesterday. Its like deja vous all over again, yet another item to add to the countless list of technical and website errors for these incompetent clowns...wasting valuable minutes of my time, then causing me to type this rant and waste valuable minutes of your time.
