This Monday was the first day of LCBO's holiday sale. Some substantial price cuts on some great wines - only thing is that they won't be in retail stores, so you have to call in to order.
LCBO Vintages sales centre opens at 9am. Phones were absolutely jammed the whole morning. There wasn't even a hold - it was just a busy tone. Finally, towards noon, I got through.
I wanted to order 1999 Chateau Haut Bergey, and 1997 Champagne J. Lassalle Brut. Both sold out. Shit!
What is this nonsense? All gone on the first day? LCBO can go to hell with all this phone nonsense. Dammit, I'm still pissed!
On another note...today was the release day for VintagesOnline. Wanted one of their Bandol wines listed, but..............using all my willpower, did not place it into my shopping cart. Because I have strong discipline. Even though I still have yet to receive about 12 other bottles of various wines I've bought in the last 2 months.
