This offer is for the 2018 vintage. Here is the tech sheet for the 2018 Trefethen: https://www.trefethen.com/wp-content/up ... g-2018.pdf

Note that ABV doesn't line up with this offer: 12.4% vs. 12%.

Here's the tech sheet for the 2019 vintage. ABV at 12% dead:

https://www.trefethen.com/wp-content/up ... g-2019.pdf

Also note that per TTB you can list ABV by 1.5 percentage points in either direction for wines under 14% ABV, so the 2018 is in line with labelling requirements. Pretty sure Trefethen just asked them to tweak abv a bit so it wouldn't match up 100%

The two bottlings could be the exact same wine, labeled with those (different) ABVs, and still be compliant with the labeling regulations.

Sean- the offer specifically notes it's bone dry.

Pretty certain this is Trefethen as suspected.

FWIT the 2019 Trefethen has 4.6g/L of RS
Yes I missed that. 4.6G/L is not bone dry. Not for me. I like 1.5g/L RS or less, most of the time prefer 0.5G/L'

Even cam defines "bone dry" as less than 1G/L

Cam also puts German trocken wines in the bone dry category even though the vast majority are >1 g/L and legally can be high as up to 9 g/L

It's actually even sweeter. I erroneously quoted the 2019 RS instead of the the 2018, that has over a gram more RS at 5.7g/L.

I drank ten of my twelve N.08's already. Good stuff -- balanced with some power and finesse at the same time. I'd get another case if I could.

That's what sub-$20 bottles of wine are for. Good for you. No way I am "cellaring" these for a decade.....I may lose ornforget a few, then it will just be a pleasant surprise, hopefully.

I scrolled through pages and pages of posts and didn't see this but has anyone resurrected the spreadsheet attempting to track "best guesses" on the sources of each bottling?

I saw, sadly, that Patrick understandably grew frustrated with the critics of his prior effort but was hoping someone picked up the baton for us late-comers.

I've recently compiled a spreadsheet with all the dN offer. It can be found here. I shared it on the dN tasting notes thread, but should probably include it here as well. I've been keeping track of recent offers and every now and then will update some past offers. I'm happy to update past offers with people's input, but for obvious reasons I'm not going back through the whole thread to fill out all producers for past offers.

Thanks.

Based on board wine sleuths, OG 66 had a strong probability of being Clos du Vol.

I went ahead and uploaded my spreadsheet to google HERE. Note that this only includes wines I have personally purchased, as that's all I am interested in tracking. It does, however, contain best guess producers from this thread.

Team:

I secured off site storage today. And instead of getting a small locker or two I got...a walk in. The previous renter was the San Diego Padres. Haha. They paid $250, he gave it to me for $200. I mean it probably holds 150-200 cases of stores right but if I just throw the dN boxes in can easily store 40-50 and be able to open them, etc. Saves me a lot of $ not having to pay for racking etc when I only need this for 12 or 18 months as I will eventually move most into my house. Long story short, bring on the dN offers cause I have more room now! No, I'm still going to be disciplined with future offers.

The best case for me buying will be 2019 Cabs he secured in barrel and will sell next spring/summer. I doubt much of 2018 will appetite me at this point. I might buy the Washington blend.

I agree with you in general and cellaring is not in my vocabulary also. But some of these numbers looks like you are going to have to cellar for a while...I bought OG 20...and first review was way young on CT:

10/15/2020 - JAMESCROBERTS WROTE: 88 points
Fruit and ETOH up front. Astringent and tanic on the back end. This needs more time.


I got 7 cases of cabs coming so certain ones are going to the bottom of my fridge for long haul...looks like 20 is going there.

How likely is Cam to actually do this? I know he bills dN as wine futures, but we really haven't seen that in the classic bordelais sense. From his interviews it seems a lot of the value proposition dN brings to winemakers is moving inventory/overproduction the wineries couldn't easily move for a host of reasons. How much of that is going to be true for 2019 wines?

It's an error, it has happened a few times. It's not malicious or real. Of course he doesn't have 1m cases of #17 available. That happens to be one of those he said will be offered in fall at higher prices so I'm sure he does have 100s of not 1000s of cases available for sale though.

He has specifically said he has already bought 2019 wine that's sitting barrels. I think it was in one of the interviews. How much has he bought? Who knows, probably not a lot. But he definitely said he has some. That 2019 wine sitting in barrels had similar issues that the 2018 crop did for the wineries in March/April/May so I could see why they'd pre-sell the excess juice to Cameron for cash flow.

I wasn't aware that Cam had already bought 2019 fruit. Did he mention whether he intended to sell it while it was still in barrel?

I can see producers selling to Cam at that start of the year, but with the 2020 vintage being plagued by so many issues I don’t imagine many producers are looking to sell excess wine, but rather hold on to it to supplement some of thay 2020 shortfall.
Taking aside the ones Cam has already bought, I'm left wondering what the reasons are for those producers that do sell bulk 2019 juice now. I don't imagine there being too much overflow so my guess would steer towards a lot of those being mostly young vines or barrels that didn't make the cut. I think the value proposition for much of the 2019 wines are going to look very different than the 2018s we've seen so far.

Yes, he commented on it in relation to the fires I think. How he has some 2019 locked up but then the market froze. I believe that was the context. Again, I doubt it's a lot of wine. But I'm certain he said it.

100% agree that going forward the dN proposition is going to be less than it was before. It's just like any market. Many of the factors that made it amazing in May/June/July are now gone, mostly the fires but also all asset classes rising.

And 2019 lower crop than 2018 and 2020 is in a lot of trouble.

Thanks! Reinforced my decision to pick up a case even though I’m way heavy on Cab! Nice to pick one up that folks have actually tried for a change though!

He has specifically said he has already bought 2019 wine that's sitting barrels. I think it was in one of the interviews. How much has he bought? Who knows, probably not a lot. But he definitely said he has some. That 2019 wine sitting in barrels had similar issues that the 2018 crop did for the wineries in March/April/May so I could see why they'd pre-sell the excess juice to Cameron for cash flow.
I wasn't aware that Cam had already bought 2019 fruit. Did he mention whether he intended to sell it while it was still in barrel?

I can see producers selling to Cam at that start of the year, but with the 2020 vintage being plagued by so many issues I don’t imagine many producers are looking to sell excess wine, but rather hold on to it to supplement some of thay 2020 shortfall.
Taking aside the ones Cam has already bought, I'm left wondering what the reasons are for those producers that do sell bulk 2019 juice now. I don't imagine there being too much overflow so my guess would steer towards a lot of those being mostly young vines or barrels that didn't make the cut. I think the value proposition for much of the 2019 wines are going to look very different than the 2018s we've seen so far.

It's going to be interesting to see what Cam has to offer on the 2019 reds front. Would also be curious to see if he finally starts selling stuff that's not bottled yet.

So I have seen referenced the idea of a cellar defender. I am looking for a de negoce bottle shock defender. A earlier bottling that will protect the no.50+ I have bought and that were bottled in September/October.

I see 17 up right now and have seen Beaucanon or Roy. There seems to be a big difference in price there. Roy being a good bit more than Beaucanon. Have read good reviews regardless of what it is, but also looking for some of those earlier cabs 2-10 that ave as good of reviews too. Any chance he reopens those?

Very unlikely the cabs from 1-10 are not sold out. When he re-released the other wines he said:

"While most of the OG releases have sold out upon release (save for a pallet or so of hold-backs for shipping mishaps which, thankfully, have not materialized), there are larger lots that I planned on re-releasing at higher prices later this Fall once the wines are through bottle shock. With so many new faces on the list, however, I thought I would give y'all a crack at some previously released lots at their original release pricing."

I also think it's *very* likely 17 an 20 were Beaucanon. While that might give you pause, I'd say that 75% of people who bought it seem to be very happy. I bought #20 and skipped 17.

Hi all. I was perusing through Vince L's spreadsheet of possible producers for each offer and it notes that the offers believed to be Robert Craig aren't it because RC confirmed they didn't sell any bulk juice. Anyone know anything about it?

So setting aside the sheer lack of social awareness when it comes to asking a winery if they sold bulk juice to de Negoce, why would any winery confirm such a question? There is a reason why the identity of these wineries are under a lock and key NDA.

Unless the denial was under oath, I'd take it with a grain of salt. My good friend who is an assistant winemaker at one of the suspected producers, when I first asked if they recently sold anything to CH, said "We did sell some bulk wine but I'm not sure to whom." And then later said "Nah, it wasn't us." Fishy...

Ok, for all of you who have been asking 'who's updated the spreadsheet'. I started with a spreadsheet, and then decided there might be a better solution for us to organize info and collaborate. https://denegociants.com/ This is a personal project and work in progress (it’s been in progress for months now). Please be gentle 😉.

Seriously, well done! This is terrific! Also I’ve been viewing on my phone and think it looks solid on mobile too!
