    Mystery Wine #55 Dear Friends, It’s a bit ridiculous when retailers claim they have the “lowest price in the world”, etc – it’s presumptuous and doesn’t take into account the tens of thousand of shops that choose not to post pricing on internet search engines. With that said... This is the lowest price not only in the world, but ever offered on this set of wines. (you knew that was coming, right?) When you add in the provenance (directly from the winery cellar and never moved since release), it adds up to one of the most exciting Mystery Wine offers yet (at least for this taster). We receive so many requests for well-priced Grand Cru red Burgundy but it is quite difficult to acquire in any sort of quantity. Today, we not only have a price $50-100+/bottle less than the lowest price in the US (and lower than any price in Europe) but we have enough that you can cellar multiple cases – that’s exciting from my point of view. What I can tell you: • You will get to see the exact label, cork, bottle as what is on store shelves as I type this. • This offer is not a pre-arrival – the entire parcel has just arrive in port and will ship this season. • To alleviate hair pulling, ire and general threats to the winery of “I will never support your wine again” by wholesalers and retailers, this is a random parcel of three Grand Cru red Burgundy wines – all from the same winery but different vintages and vineyards. • They will be packed at random for you – all three are the same tariff - $69.81. By offering the wine in this fashion, the $69+ price isn’t really “official” (except for all of us, of course). If you order one bottle, you’ll receive one out of the three, if you order 3, 6, 12, 24, etc, chances are pretty good you’ll receive some equation of all three (not guaranteed but more than likely). • All three are from the Cote de Nuits • All are from Grand Cru sites noteworthy for ageing • Vintages are random but none are from 2003, 2004 or 2009. • The winery is small and highly thought of – not one of the big houses • All are critically acclaimed from Burghound (no sub 90 reviews/scores) - the winery tried to include examples of equal worth regardless of vintage or vineyard so it will not matter what you receive – they want you to be happy (the winery put a lot of thought into this). • The $69+ price is lower than the wholesale price in Europe as posted by FinestWine • All should cellar beautifully with an emphasis on finesse, elegance and, well, mystery – this is not Syrah in a Burgundy bottle. • The lowest US price I can find on any of them (from discounters) begins at $120-130 and goes up to $175 but that’s with typical provenance, not with this level of pristine cellar history. • “Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.” - Aristotle • “If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.” - AA Milne • “I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.” - Winston Churchill • “Burgundy often confounds, I thought it was of Kings but I turned around a step only to only be lesser, which, by all accounts is even better” - Stanus Ringlin • If you take the three quotes above and use only parts of each, you will be miles ahead... On your mark, get set...GO! FIRST COME FIRST SERVED up to 48 random bottles/person until we run out: Mystery Wine #55 (Grand Cru Red Burgundy) - $69.81
