September 2018: What are you buying?

Local liquor monopoly has just discounted quite a few wines, so I ran in to pick up one bottle, but came out with

- 2015 Philippe Colin Chassagne-Montrachet Les Chaumees X2

- 2015 Mark Haisma Morey St Denis Les Chauffots

- 2014 Serafin Pere Morey St Denis Les Millandes 

- 2012 Domaine Thibert Pouilly-Fuisse Vignes Blanches X4

None of those are the wine I went in to buy.  I know I've told some of you that my only real bucket list wine is Montrachet-- for years I've wanted a bottle from a good producer in a good year, but they're always priced higher than I'm prepared to pay.  Today they had one discounted a couple hundred bucks, and I figured this is not likely to happen again in my market so I got it. I'm 99% certain that I'll be enjoying it well before it's at its peak:

- 2014 Bouchard Pere Montrachet

And now I'm done buying wine for a long while.

Too good to be true. Order cancelled by the retailer when they realized their mistake.

Was that Saratoga? $14.99 or something like that? I searched it when I saw your post because I thought it odd you would buy a case when it was being released today at the LCBO for a very reasonable price.

Yeah, Saratoga. It was $13.59 if you bought a case of 6. One of the TWC even called them to confirm it was in fact the Carbonaione and not the Chianti Classico (which DOES often retail in the US for $14-15) and was told it was definitely the Carbonaione. So I loaded up. As did a few others.

24 hours later we all got the "oops we made a mistake" email.

2010 Bodegas Muga, Rioja, Prado Enea Gran Reserva

How many, fellow point chaser?

Point chaser? I'm just extending my vertical of this outstanding wine, which has the added bonus of being reasonably priced. And to answer your question, just 2 bottles.

Verticals going back to when?

Both of these are zero dosage:

5 x 2013 Marie Courtin Champagne Efflorescence Extra Brut

Where'd you pick those up?

Saratoga Wine Exchange

Nothing from the Waddington's auction, despite bidding on 8 or 9 lots...for all the people who keep shelling out multiples of retail to buy these lots, why not just buy from the states and pay duty and save a pile of money and get the bottles you want when you want them, instead of having to wait for auctions and getting stuck with whatever extra bottles are in the lots you buy?  Ludicrous
