1717 Avenue Street LCBO

Before I dropped into Waterloo this past Saturday, I went into LCBO to pick up some bottles from the latest release. For some reason, which I completely do not understand, these bottles were not available at Bayview Village.

My shopping list:

2005 CH. Croze de Pys, AC Cahors
2005 CH. La Fleur Jonquet Blanc, AC Graves
2004 DOM. La Bastide Blanche, AC Bandol
J. Lassalle Brut Champagne Preference, AC Champagne

I picked up 2 bottles of the Graves white. Have not yet tried the white wines of the 2005 Bordeaux vintage, and Ièm very excited to taste them.

I was very disappointed with the 1717 Ave. LCBO location. Terrible layout and terrible organization. Incredibly cluttered Vintages section, and the wines were so hard to find. They were almost hidden, there were no signs to point you in the right direction, and the cramped quarters certainly did not help. I was terrified of bumping into someone and taking out a whole shelf of bottles. Terrible. I am spoiled by Bayview Village.

Bayview Village LCBO, my love for you burns stronger each day.
