The Rhône Rangers


#544

By pure chance I received an email yesterday regarding the sale of a private celler which happened to include that very wine at a price mid way between TWS EP offer price and £132. Full provenance was assured as the wine was in storage at the vendor. Couldn’t resist. There was a serious amount of other wine for sale at all price points.


#545

And the 15 appears to be back (well, orderable anyway)


#546


Showing as out of stock.


#547

Just went to order and it got snatched out of my basket :triumph:


#548

Glad I grabbed some earlier. Put a mixed case in reserves, with some Fontodi 2015 and some Pataille Marsannay, mind you it stopped me getting all the Bourgogne La chapille I wanted.

Snooze you loose!!!


#549

Ha! The power of the Community, or the problem of small lots? Glad I didn’t dither in this case, though sorry if I’ve deprived the rest of you.


#550

Confused? You will be! For me it’s now saying due in 31st May, order now.


#551

Now shows ‘due in 31 may’! Tempted, as last year it was only offered in halves, but i did get 2 cases of those so…


#552

Now ordered a 6pk :grinning:


#553

How random…:thinking:


#554

Three bottles ordered plus one other :grinning: I have some of the half bottles of 2016 too.


#555

A pal brought 2 bottles of their 2010 for Sunday lunch last weekend. Sublime and a perfect match for a rare Sirloin of beef. Top producer!


#556

Looks like there’s only around 140 bottles coming (or remaining after others have pre-ordered). So likely to go quick.


#557

Is there a remaining stocks list for 2017? There’s nothing on the website in the en primeur section, only the 2016 Bordeaux.

Asking for a friend…


#558

@Herbster I have one probably well out of date but happy to pass on. PM me your email and I will forward it.


#559

Now sold out some 5 days before coming in!


#560

I was at the cellar showroom on Saturday, collecting some wine, and came across two bottles of this, part buried in a mixed crate, in the fine wine inner sanctum…

…at £18 a bottle. Half bottles of the same cost £13.95. I took one home. Perhaps another eagle-eyed crate digger has come across the remaining bottle since but if you’re in the showroom early next week, and you’re interested, it may still be there.


#561

And it’s back again:


Around 670 bottles.


#562

Stop it :see_no_evil::see_no_evil::see_no_evil:I have some arriving in a couple of weeks and you’re tempting me to purchase more :see_no_evil::see_no_evil::see_no_evil::rofl:!


#563

I was slowly putting together an order and then the Raspail disappeared :frowning: So now I’ve added back into the order and placed it! So got it this time! :smiley:
