I can't believe I'm about to make another purchase.  But what to do when 5 pre-arrival wines come in?  I can't just take possession of the 5.  I need to round it out to 2 cases, right?

Gotcha. Flaccianello prices are blowing up, I was able to get a single bottle for that price close to a year ago...

Dig your taste!

Thanks Eltoro. Ditto. We often have similar taste as you also enjoy cdps I believe.

6x 2010 Lopez de Heredia Tondonia Rosado Gran Reserva at 29usd all in

 

Its really frustrating...I've seen them go for $135 + BP, plus tax, plus shipping.  I get it a high demand wine would go for over its release price, but this wine is out of control.

The weather has cooled of so I shipped some auction wins:

2005 Sondraia Poggio al Tesoro

2004 Ruffino Modus

2005 Ch Bolaire

2009 Uccelliera Rapace

2006 I Greppi Greppicante

2008 Gerardo Cesari Mara

2015 Numanthia Termes

2011 Terra d'Uro, Toro Ero Seleccion

2009 Ch Le Vieux Serestin

2010 Ch Haut-Pommarede

2011 Bersano Barbera d'Asti Superiore Nizza Generala

2013 Bersano Barbera d'Asti Superiore Nizza Generala

What I have heard is that the winery has specific buying requirements for their other wines before you can get the Rosado or even some of their whites. Something like you need to buy X number of cases of the red reservas  before they can allot you a shipment of the rosado. This in part is what drives up the price.

I just received an offer for 2006 Dolium.  I'm temped.  Hopefully, if I decide to buy it, it will have already been snatched up so I won't have to spend the money.  Actually, hopefully one of you fine fellows who really appreciates Northern Rhone has already snapped it up.  I don't want it to go to a collector.  But how would a collector even know what it is?  Price is fair, too.  $445 from an excellent source.  If you didn't get the e-mail and you've been chasing this unicorn, let me know -- I'd prefer to pass for a forumite, I think.  I think.

That would put a dent into your monthly sanitizer budget.

Yes, I know I overpaid for the ME.

Also taking possession of 4 bottles of LdH Tondonia Reserva Blanco and one of the rosado that I pre-ordered.

That's correct. Even if you're at the winery, you need to buy 1 case of Tondonia Tinto to get 1 bottle of Tondonia Blanco. 2 cases of Tondonia Tinto to get 1 bottle of a Gran Reserva. That may extend to the Rosado also, but the allocations/requirements may be even higher for it.
