In your experience, it is better to call or place your order online?

There are, no doubt, others here who would be better to answer that.  Since I retired, my available wine spending $$$$$ has shrunk and I haven't bought from the Classics in a couple of years.

I went a little deeper than anticipated. 
Bolly GA
Jouvet Cornas
Equis Cornas
Produttori Montestefano

Have no previous experience with the Cornas producers but really enjoying the region so thought I'd take a shot. One thing that I've found about Cornas is that it can be enjoyable on the young side vs other serious wines from the old world.

It simply blows me away that people are willing to pay $450 for Cliff Lede's 2016 Poetry Cab.  It sold out at that price.  Not so many years ago, the 2006 lingered on the shelf when it was priced at $126.

That one astounded me, too. About 5 years ago I bought a case of the 2007 in the US for $120 each and that felt pricey at the time. I like the wine, but these days I wouldn't even pay $120. Way too many other, better options at that price.

I forgot about it and bought nothing. 

I wish i could have your strength of memory....

  My memory is on par with Rob's. I even passed on ordering from the recent Courier Vinicole so I could buy a few Bolly's but proceeded to forget on Thursday morning.

Same here, was aiming for some Bolly's and, IIRC, Produttori and forgot on Thurs AM.
