Re: Vendor check: Firstthewine.com

Hello, has anyone ever ordered from Firstthewine? It looks like it's a wine storage place in LA but also sells some wine. Interesting selection of wines. I'm guessing it's secondary market rather than initial sales. Thanks for your thoughts! Mike https://www.firstthewine.com I have also had many ex...

I am basically also done with Zachys after a number of ongoing issues. Most recently, they lost one bottle of mine and destroyed another. Both were 2017 Mugneret Gibourg Echezeaux, so irreplaceable.

Re: 2015 Cappellano

FWIW Augusto prefers 2015 to 2016--perhaps because that is the vintage on sale now? At any rate, Rosenthal's notes below The 2015 vintage treated Augusto well, and in fact he remarked to us that he prefers it to the much vaunted 2016, at least for the moment.
