Mississauga, Dundas & WCh

Received good reviews by most critics (not just JS). CT reports are meh. At 20% off it might be worth a try to get your own opinion. 19 bottles left.


Had this many weeks ago. It was meh... so meh that I hardly recall it. Not worth $50 original price.
Yup, thats pretty much in line with other reviews.

Too bad, the 2011 was decent-good (nothing more).

The Clearance Center up at Crossroads may have become a bit confused about their role, but the stores are still allowed to put wines on sale.  Laird St is the flagship store for Australia and, because they are doing some renovations, they are doing a major clearout of wines in that section as well as some sale items in other categories.

The ones that caught my eye are

  • NV Brimoncourt  Brut Rosé Champagne  $38
  • NV Jean Noël Haton Classic Brut Champagne  $31
  • 2001 Cirillo Estate 1850 Old Vine Semillon  $30
  • 2015 Wakefield St Andrew Chardonnay  $24
  • 2014 Rockford Frugal Farmer Grenache  $30
  • 2013 Hickinbotham Clarendon Vineyard Trueman Cabernet Sauvignon  $67

At crossroads.  For anyone who enjoys stake.

According to Winesearcher, this goes for around 25 Euros (tax incl) in Italy.  This seems like a pretty high clearance price.

I think the LCBO has lost its understanding of what 'clearance' means.  It's not a price increase!

Eglington/Winston Churchill store in Mississauga has Norman Hardie's line up 30% discounted. Many more (total of 70 products)

Gave the 2015 Chardonnay a try last weekend and can't say I was overly impressed.  The critics seem to like it more than I do.

Hi OTW,

I picked up the unfiltered Pinot Noir (Niagara) and it came across a bit watered down and showing a soft backbone. Not impressed either. Well, it was worth a try.
