Toronto: Want to split a case of...?

With a nod to JDWest who begat the idea in his Brunello thread, this is a place for GTA winos to post case purchases they would be interested in splitting. List case size, wine, price, and number of bottles you'd like to keep for yourself. People interested in the splitting should list their email and the lister will contact you.

6 X 2002 Pol Roger Brut Vintage @$91.95 + HST/dep, I'd like to keep 3-4
6 X 2002 Pol Roger BdB @$99.95 + HST/dep, I'd like 3-4.

Thanks VinT. Will see if anything comes up.

Sounds intriguing. Might be interested in splitting a case. Any TNs?

From an offline at Paese Jun 2012: The 2009 Elena Walch Beyond the Clouds was terrific. A blend of Gewurtz, Sauv Blanc, and others, it was aromatic and complex with tropical fruits. It combined the best of two grapes I typically don't prefer into an excellent white. Thanks OTW for yet another unusual but excellent wine.

I'm going to hold off for now but highly recommend it. I went large all fall, so I've decided to pull back on the wine purchase throttle for a while. Cheers,
I've seen a couple offers come through from agents for some 2010 BdM that I'd like to acquire. I'm not in need of a full 6 of each, but would take 3 and was wondering if anyone would be interested in the remainder?

Uccelliera - $89/bottle (+HST, etc)
Il Poggione - $68/bottle (+HST, etc)

If interested, let me know, happy to split.

My understanding is that the Il Poggione is $68 *including* HST. Lifford lists their retail prices inclusive of taxes, whereas Trialto (if they're still repping Ucceliera) does not.

Thanks Futronic. The Il Poggione is through Lifford. The Uccelliera was via Wineonline and does not include HST.
If I were you, I'd also call Vintages Customer Service and find out who the real importer of Uccelliera is. While WineOnline does represent some producers, they more often than not list products from other agents. As a result, they add their agency fee on top of the originating agent's fee, therefore making the wine even more expensive than it should be. I refuse to buy from them unless absolutely because of this.

Just a thought.

Good to know. I wondered about wine online.

Thanks Fut. I had thought that wineonline was a distributor in their own right. I'll definitely see if I can find the importer/distributor before ordering via wineonline.

Appreciate the heads up.
WineOnline is an agent that represents various wineries (technically they're not the distributor, as that's the LCBO thanks to our monopoly, but that's a technicality).

But if you look at their products quickly (I focused on Italy). Antinori and Biondi-Santi are repped by Halpern. Donatella Cinelli-Colombini and Fanti by Le Sommelier. I'm sure I could pick apart the rest of their offerings and map them to the source agents, but I think I've made my point. They're simply acting as a web presence and charging more when a simple phone call allows you to cut out the middleman.

Also, why would you want to pay $120 for Tig when you can just pick it up at the LCBO for $101? The fact that Tig generally isn't worth more than $50 is a different discussion.

Thanks A. With duty added, I'm inclined to pick it up here.

I usually go down for a few weekends/yr with wife and a few friends. They dont usually buy any liquor so I pickup 8-12 bottles (2 each without duty) and I avoid duty...but you need to stay for a min of 48hrs...

JDWest,

There are some bottles that will likely be cheaper here (the CdN tenuta nuova?) and most will be similarly priced. But for cheaper ones or ones I cant find here (cant ever find Valdicava in Montreal) I head to US...

Two of the most memorable wine experiences I've had was with '77 Mastroberardino Taurasi Riserva. Had it on two occasions, but outstandingly complex and balanced, both in 2008 (last time tasted was an offline I brought it to; Nov 3, 2008!).

I keep buying this stuff and laying it down, hoping for something great down the road. It drinks well after 15-20 years, too!

If you need someone to jump for 2 bottles to make a case, let me know!
