Something else available here by any chance? I need more bubbly.

You mean I didn't get them all?

They have over a case left as of about 10pm.

Thoughts/notes on this? How does is stack up against the Giraud Hommage recently discounted?
I thought I cleaned them out!!!

I had one this weekend and thought it was good - very good. Leans to the cleaner, sharper / less yeasty style of champagne. I got some lovely floral notes on the nose I really liked.
The little bugger is putting them out a few at a time, like mouse droppings...

Next time, I'm going to put him up against the wall and grill him!
2012 Inglenook 1882 on sale for $62 at the Carleton Place store. Seems like a good deal, until you realize that's the REGULAR price at the SAQ.....
not necessairily a discount alert but weston has some 2011 Az. Ag. Randi 'Burson' Ravenna Rosso that i tried on a punt the other night at $18 having never tried a ravenna IGT - i liked it enough that i went back and bought 12 more today.

There is also some diebolt-vallois left on the shelf and 2013 shafer red shoulder ranch marked down to $54
There are a half dozen 2004 Conterno Fantino Sori Genestra available at Cooper Street. Tagged at $109 but scanned and bought at $98 each. Not sure how great of a deal it is relative to US prices but I suspect it's good.

$109 was the price for this wine in the Fall 2009 Classics catalogue.
Not much to talk about lately under the 'value' topic at the LCBO. I'm not sure this qualifies either, but it is the best I have seen at Crossroads in quite a while:

2011 Giacomo Fenocchio Barolo @$37 (stained labels)
2013 Boroli Langhe Anna Rosso @$13.50 (blend of 50% nebbiolo, 33% barbera, 11% merlot)

If that doesn't do it for you, then fuhgeddaboudit. Value ain't happenin in Ontario!
There was some 2012 Gramercy Village idiot Mourvedre on the shelf for $52 (i think) when i passed through Weston last night.
The Rideau/King Edward store here in Ottawa has a few bottles of 2004 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet in their wine fridge for $99.
