I mentioned that Bollinger 2012 was about to be released on sale by the Society.
I transpires that there has been a delay, disappointing but totally understandable.
For example today, the phones are being managed by a skeleton staff.
Looking around the market today, Bolly 2012 is generally on sale at £440IB which translates to around £92 per bottle delivered or £549 per 6 bottle case, if the Society follows other retailers.
I can only guess that the demand for Bollinger 2012 will not be as heavy as the 2008, which got spectacular reviews. We shall see. Personally, I don’t buy much vintage Champagne as it can be prohibitively expensive, as was the 2008 at £98 per bottle.
To put it into context in the current market for the price (estimated) of one bottle of the Bolly 2012 you could have easily purchased from the Rhone EP 2018 offer, a six bottle case the Cuilleron Syrah Candives with change, a case of Ogier’s La Rosine or for a few £’s more a case of Beaucastel’s Coudoulet Rouge all including taxes and of course, delivery!!
I have enough regrets in my life…?!?
