My point was not how quickly you respond, but when you receive the email itself, which could be 10 seconds or 5 minutes later than others.
If you check the email header, you can find out the path and time/delay it took to reach each hop. Then you can get an idea if you are getting delayed email.

I was reminded of your K&L threads when I saw that!
How is that 2016 price supported? Is the 2016 "special"? I had picked up some 2008s for $120, and saw some at auction recently for $80.

2015/16 are not only considered outstanding vintages but 2016 has extremely low production.

08 is a good vintage but not highly regarded. I recently got a bottle of d’Angerville 08 fremiets for a very low price.

Sigh, no luck on the 2016 Zind Humbrecht Clos Windsbuhl Pinot Gris. Greg politely offered 2016 Zind-Humbrecht Wintzenheim Pinot Gris Rotenberg at $34.99 instead, but I passed.

Are you saying you can't buy rav mdt all day long for 49.99? I have never paid more than 49 for rav mdt before.

I don't think. But maybe I have. Because I DON'T KNOW WTF A RAV MDT IS

It’ll probably sell; that’s a pretty risky dice roll.

actually, it was missing a 3.

figured it was worth a shot as long as I qualified that I only wanted it if the $49 was true. haha

I think I must have just about the entire horizontal of the '16 Aubert de Villaine. It would be fun to stick in one DRC in the blind taste lineup whenever these get opened.

2014 Valentini Trebbiano d'Abruzzo is $110. Previous Envoyer offers were $90 for the 2013 and $75 for the 2011.

I expect the increases are at source and not Greg's doing. Still... ouch. It's a big pass at that price.

People who has received aged ex-cellar wines in the past, in what condition were the wines? Sometimes I am hesitant to request old ex-cellar wines due to lack of bottle info in their emails. What are the neck fill level, label condition, cork, etc?

In my experience, the quality has been excellent -- with the caveat that I'm rarely buying pre-1990s stuff.

TIA!
Has anyone reported corked wines to Greg? What was your experience?

I only signed up with Envoyer couple of months ago so I havent received any of my orders yet. I was just wondering for potential future orders since his emails only states vintage and producer.
