This is one for the record books, hence me recording it.

I just bought this wine, this vintage, this everything for...

wait for it...

....


...wait for it..... $23.99 per bottle. I bought every single bottle they had. Did I feel like correcting their pricing? No. Do I feel the slightest bit guilty? Absolutely not. One woman was holding a bottle from 1999 in her mitts because "the label was pretty" and I almost leg wrassled her to the ground to wrench it away from her. I think I showed extraordinary restraint, all things considered.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! Guess what we're popping open if I sell my book? DUDE. I thought I was high tone drinking the 2004 vintage. LIFE IS FINE, MY FRIENDS.

GOOD LORD. They're currently being squirreled away in my closet so someone doesn't accidentally open it up.

!!! I'm tempted to go to every branch of this shop and buy them all out...

They're normally $600 a piece. I got it for $24. That's insane!

I kept double checking with their wine guy, he was saying, I know, I know, that's what they've been priced at.

!!!

It's such a delicious bottle, well, I assume. I've not been able to afford this vintage! I've had the 2004, which was one of the best wines I've ever had.

I can't believe it! Amazing! Not just the wine (well done, girl) but I think I'm the first to comment on one of your posts. :)

My goodness, that's some price mistake. I can't believe they didn't notice when ringing it up. Serves them right for not knowing their own product.

Enjoy!

No, it wasn't a mistake, that's the craziest thing! They had the price ADVERTISED. I asked them multiple times if that was correct, and then just made out like a bandit.

If I hadn't bought all the stores right by me out, I would! (I gave the wine girl my number and told her to call me IMMEDIATELY if another shipment comes in. She said they sometimes get a 1999 vintage and sell it for FORTY SEVEN. Oh my god... I'll totally hook you and L up if she comes through.)

I've never had it either, as it's normally 600+!! If you can find it, grab all you can! :D

I almost took the wine person at the second store by the shoulders to emphasize how they MUST CALL ME when the next shipment arrives.

Dude. That's pretty damned impressive.

Their wine guy must just be throwing his hands up.

How many fricking bottles of this stuff did you get??? I mean... a 30 bottle investment would be $18,000 worth of wine for $720...

Plus insurance. And the wine safe.

Wish I could have bought my car for that...

:::total awe:::

Jan. 24th, 2009 10:40 pm (UTC)
Note that the price on that link is for 12 - not, per. (But still!!)

I got four bottles, two at one of their shops, and two at the other. The third shop was sold out (I bet!)

Each store has my phone number and name and CAPS LOCK: CALL ME when this comes back in, any vintage, zomg.

Dude. My jaw literally dropped open and I stopped breathing when I saw what a bargain you got!!

I'd be jealous except I can't drink wine, it makes me really ill, so instead of jealous I'm just happy for you.

ENJOY.

Congratulations. If they don't recognise what they've got, you owe it to the wine to give it a better home.

I love the comment earlier that said I owed it to the wine to snatch it away from those senseless purveyors.

I would totally start drinking again for that. Well, especially since one of my main reasons for not drinking is that I can't stand my in law's taste in wine/beer.

Salut!

You know, I never thought I liked wine until I was served GOOD wine. Then I went, "Hey. This stuff is delicious! And the food pairing DOES make everything better, huh!"

Now I am standing about with my hands on hips, feeling like a Big Girl. :D

Jan. 25th, 2009 03:16 pm (UTC)
YES YES YES! That's what it is, and I'm still astounded that they could let it go WILLINGLY at that ridiculous price! (And that they'll call me when MORE comes in! DUDE.)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
