Having gotten in on the Legras the other day, I had to hold off on these. $30/btl would have made it an irresistible deal. But they are delicious!

As it turns out, Envoyer never received my email response, so no dice for me.

Then, yesterday, I followed-up on my Marguet request of two days ago to find out that they never got my initial request on that one, either. Now I feel like I need to follow-up on every single request, as my emails clearly aren't getting through for whatever reason. .... looking forward to the new website!

I am holding out a single grain of hope that I'll land any of my requests for the aged Bdx. that came through in today's afternoon offer. I replied fairly late, and it was by email ... so we'll see ...

I replied within a minute of receiving the email. I only asked for one bottle: the '85 Leoville Barton. I got the confirmation email a few minutes ago.

I'd vouch for his wines. Good, traditional Cornas producer - he makes the real deal and is a decent value alternative to some of the super star producers if you actually want to drink the stuff.

Balthazar is legit. Got a few 2015 Chaillot for ~$50 (not from Envoyer) not too long ago. I wouldn't open any Chaillot for a long ass time though.

Yeah, the Chaillot is up by $10. It's still $10 cheaper than anywhere else though. Still a good value in my book and asked for three. I think in most of N. Rhone the market is catching up to the quality of the wines. Still some good values--but probably gone are the days of insane values. Seems like everything has gone up for '17, which might not be as good as the previous two vintages? Still buying most of my favorites though.

You can drink the Cuvee Casimir earlier, though I don't really like that bottling. I like the Chaillot bottling a lot - it's one of the best bargains in Cornas imho given the quality.

Was about to buy some 2014 riserva but a quick search in winesearcher showed a local store available for $10 less (and ready for pick up), so I purchased there. Hoping that I'll be able to share some with my son one day (his birth year)... if there's any left [wink.gif]
