I put an initial bid on those Maggies but didn’t chase them. Thought about the VCC. What about the 81 Trotanoy?
I didn’t see it. Sounds good, but about 30-40% more.

Sitting at $125... for 80+vig I went with the VCC. Not sure if the trotanoy is as good a value, but one I wouldn’t mind in my cellar for sure

I got one, too, and an 81 VCC to go with it :)
I took three bottles of that 81 VCC. I’ve been really happy with 81 Bdx recently. La Conseillante is sublime.

I don’t know who bid. It’s good wine but I like the VCC better. (But that’s almost always true.)

I've never used them before - UK site, for clarity, but they've got 6 more cases at that price. It seemed like a ludicrously good price all things considered. I dont really know the site but at that price point and it seems to be reasonably legit, its worth a chance really.


Once I've verified the wine is real and is transferred over to a company and storage system I have experience with and trust, I might buy a few more cases. They have no complaintst on this forum or the wider web through a cursory search. I guess their business model is a bit 'risky' - e.g. you list for sale third party wines in various professional storage without evidence of proof of it, on the basis that if a firm order is unfulfilled you buy it and then charge the false seller the difference. I guess they do minimise their exposure by relying on photos and documentation tto know the wine is real.

The truth will out when the 12 bottles hit my storage account ;-)
I bought from them this summer. Took forever for transfer but did get my wine after a couple of months and the price was great. I also bought some 2001 Prum and paid for the inspection photos. The bottles had low fills so I declined the transaction. They refunded me without hassle although again that took a minute. I could easily blame a lot of that on COVID. I would use them again without hesitation.
Just following up on this - they dropped me a call first thing Monday to explain how they're a bit different, etc, and the potential timelines for the wine hitting my account. Appreciated its all a bit different and made clear that there was no rush. Pretty happy so far, but as I said, its all about when the wine enters my account.

I see someone else cleared out the other 6 cases of the Taittinger though, was that one of you :D

Just dropping by to say I have not bought any wine since Sep. 28. First time in probably 15 years that I've gone a month plus without a purchase. It gets to easier to delete deals as the days go by. It can be done!

I went 3.5 months end of last year and beginning of this one. Then, whether it was COVID or 2019 German offers to blame (or lack of willpower), I fell off the wagon hard.

What will be your nudge? [cheers.gif]

Three plus months is impressive! [cheers.gif]
I also went a little nuts with buying early in the shut down, so still recovering from that spree. I'm finding that I am becoming much more selective, that had been coming on for some time, so I am doing less impulse buying. Hope that continues. Also, a pending move in the next 6 months or so has me specifically drinking down so I have fewer bottles to move.

I'm sure I will cave soon enough!

12 x 2018 Hanzell Estate Chardonnay allocation. Not really sure what to expect, I guess I will find out soon :)
Hope you enjoy! Please reach out to me directly if you have any questions. Take care.
Thanks, Jason. I did enjoy the 18 I had tonight. As with most of your wines I prefer them with a bit of age and same goes for the 18 Chard. Good that I have 11 bottles left I guess.

Your 06, 10 and 16 chardonnays are still standouts to me among the whites. As for Pinot your 98 was amazing while I still have some older "older" stuff in magnum left including a 68 that I am quite excited about trying - think it will be this Thanksgiving.

Say hi to Ayn and the team.

/ Emil
Thanks Emil. Will do! the '98 Pinot is one of my all-time favorites as well.

All my best,

Age merely shows what children we remain.
-Goethe

But I've just noticed that my mind is asleep.

I can't find the "what just got delivered" thread, so I'll post here. My most recent three purchases were just delivered: Rivers-Marie Cabs, William & Mary, Bucklin. I love the W&M Napa label.

I grabbed a bunch of 2016 Landmark Hop Kiln Estate Pinot Noir at near close out prices. It will be interesting to see what they can do with the property. 2016 was their first vintage.

You will be happy with these! They made some of the wines of the vintage in Champagne in 2011. Totally transcending expectations of the vintage. Their only "defect" is that they are super delicious already, as opposed to requiring a decade on cork.

I may go back for more depending on how I like. Love the Terre de Vertus. Like Vilmart, I get the impression this producer does well regardless of vintage.

High praise indeed! I have never had the VdmP before but I am very excited to try it as I love Ganevat. Especially at the price I was offered it was impossible to pass up...

I would say they even outperform in the more challenging years such as 2011 and 2013. Their tendency is to crop low and pick late, which really makes itself felt as a positive in more marginal circumstances.

Clearly someone was sending me a sign that I needed more savagnin in the cellar...

2012 Ganevat Chalasses Marnes Bleues
2014 Ganevat Chalasses Marnes Bleues
2006 Ganevat Vignes de mon Pere
2009 Puffeney Arbois Savagnin
Nice! Just got a couple of 2007 Vignes de Mon Père...

2003 whereof remains the best Jura white wine (and white wine of that vintage) that I ever drank.
High praise indeed! I have never had the VdmP before but I am very excited to try it as I love Ganevat. Especially at the price I was offered it was impossible to pass up...
Don't be afraid to put it in a (cool) decanter for a while.... it's a cuvée that really blossoms with air. After that long in barrel, it's so stable you can do anything with it.

Sichel Montrachet 1969.
Could be good!
I am pretty hopeful. Bottle looks in good shape, and it is from the same cellar as the incredible 1969 Bruno Thierry Cote Rotie and the still fresh but relatively simple Nalys Blanc Chateauneuf 1978.

We had a bottle of Fourcas Dupre 1970 again from the cellar; again still fresh but the original wine was deficient.

12 bottles of NV Pol Roger at $33 bucks a pop. Pretty pleased with that - Xmas drinks.

A bottle of Lamy's 2018 St. Aubin Haute Densite. Have wanted to try this bottling for a long time, and am really excited.
Curious to hear your thoughts!

It wasn't the 2018, but a friend brought a bottle of the 2014 to dinner on Friday that was meant to be blind but ultimately wasn't. The Lamy was the only non-grand cru of the night (other than some Raveneau 1ers), and it was one of the most concentrated wines we had - it's a beast. I really liked it, though it was obviously quite young - it had a lot of tension but despite the......yes, I'm going to say density, it never had the heaviness that I get with wines like Aubert or any oakiness. A very cool wine that I think would have really benefited from a decant (we ran out of decanters) to show it's best.

For sure! All the HD wines need 15 years minimum, I think, even if you can see their potential sooner. So hard to get, though....

Thanks for this! Also would you do even more for the Criots?

Oh yes! 20-25 if you can... though the Criots and the Derriere Chez Edouard are a bit more powerful and so in a sense more obviously impressive young than the Tremblots.

Of course, this is all a projection, as the oldest vintages Lamy made are not yet that old.

Yeah. I almost wish I'd now bought more than a bottle of the 2018, though they're not cheap!

update; My Taittinger Comtes de Champagne has landed with my storage provider now. Was very pleased with WineOwners from start to finish, I guess it fundamentally depends on an honour system where people 'selling' wine can actually deliver against it, though WO would claim ito buy from the open market and charge the seller rthe difference if neeeded. TBC if true with, say, a case of Le Pin or DRC.
