I ordered 1 bottle of 2009 French Domaine Raspail-Ay Gigondas a $40.00 retail bottle very highly rated and very rare, only 20 cases allocated to all of Wisconsin. I was billed for 1 bottle they shipped me one case, 12 bottles. I have already called them to pick it up next week but I am willing to sell it this weekend if you are interested. Stop in and get them. NONE will be opened for tasting unless you pay for it first.
I found the 07 and 08 versions selling for between $34 and $40 online. I will sell the 2009 bottles that I have for 32.99 each.
Here is the description from the wholesaler: Potentially the finest Gigondas made here since their sublime 1978, the 2009 exhibits gorgeously sweet black currant, kirsch, and mineral notes intermixed with hints of cigar box and forest floor. Full-bodied with elegance married to considerable substance and power, a beautifully textured mouth feel, and a long, heady finish, this will be a long lived Gigondas.
