I threw the wines into a wish list on cellar tracker ...if anyone cares to see what other cellar tracker users rate these as ( I have many WS rating but I think they are private only for the user who set up ?? )

http://www.cellartracker.com/l...&iUserOverride=48750

doh ...edit --updated name on tagged list to March 2 (was in as May 2 )

Greg
ps - missed two wines #72850 & 86454 -- they are not in Cellar Tracker DB ( or I was blind ) and not have time to add

ps - only have one wine in cellar on list ..:-( 2005 Domaine de Courteillac that WS rated as 90 ...at $26 was Ok --gee I guess at $22 not bad for a poor man's Bordeaux ??

Some interesting stuff, yes.
However the Beaucastel VV, IMO, is the big deal.
At the equivilant of $85US, this is just a hands down good deal.
212 bottles in stock.
They won't last long.

How long has the LCBO been publishing Squire's TN's for several of their wines!? Eek
I just noticed these in the lastest Vintages Bin End sale website.


Probably ever since he got on the WA payroll covering Portugal and I think Greece as well.

As well, LCBO has been known to publish practically anyone's notes as long as it's associated with a high score to push sales.

Pushing the ethical limit, IMHO.

That's right. A lot of posters on this forum are careful to respect the rights of wine reviewers who earn their living by publishing, but the LCBO and some other retailers seem to have no compunction about trampling over other people's property.

A $109 white wine? I think this might still be there at Christmas. Not everyone has your bad spending habits you know. But you ( and OTW ) did manage to talk me into a few. Big Grin

I remember reading your comments. But at $139 I didn't even give it a second glance especially since (I believe?) it was a Classics item and I had already ordered more than I should. I don't think anyone has mentioned the RP 98 score either. But the buzz around here, plus the price reduction, plus the Parker 98 pushed me over the edge!! Still lots left.

I prefer to think of my 'bad spending habits' as 'the ability to determine good buying opportunities' Wink
I just assumed that once a wine went on CLEAROUT - that it would stay on clearout .. hmm .. guess I was wrong. This was a Dec 2008 clearout.

2004 Castello Vicchiomaggio Ripa delle More Toscana IGT LCBO # 983775 was $38.95 - then $10 off -- I see they have put to back to $38.95.

Just opened one of 2 in cellar I got on sale - NICE! but not as nice at $38.
