Some may remember a story posted 18 months or so ago about a regional auctioneer who "sold" me a wine for more than my top bid. Their T&Cs said they could do so. It was a salutary experience. I've pretty much lived under the maxim that mistakes happen (I've made plenty and shall continue to do so), but it;s how one responds that is what matters. I bought a single bottle of 1978 Lascombes at another regional auctioneer (Tavershams) just before Christmas. The postage wasn't worth the cost, so I agreed to pick it up when next in the area. They were v happy to store it and indeed volunteered. Things got a bit delayed then Coronavirus kicked in. I was heading up that way on Monday and contacted them about picking it up. They confessed they'd accidentally sold it. They have offered a full refund (about £36) or another 1978 from either Haut Batailley, Branaire Ducru, or Kirwan. They have been really good. I would like another '78. Any useful knowledge gratefully received. But which wine? [Geordie accent] You decide [/Geordie accent].
