Are Roland&Russel still able to order this as a private order via the LCBO?

If they get something good in that you like, you have to buy a whole bunch and store it. You never know when they'll get it back again, and there's no alternative source in the province. So my closets and cabinets end up stocking beer and wine…not in optimal storage conditions…not at optimal freshness. Sigh. </rant>

I was thinking today how ridiculous it is every LCBO store in the province is the same thing or at least same system, and none of them are very adaptive, and they are there to tell you exactly what you may have while they are keeping everything else out of Ontario.

What a sad, sad system / despot.

I would buy 6 750mL bottles or a full case of 330mL bottles.

Here's hoping... I would be in for more than a couple cases of the 750mls

I love Dupont but it would be so much better in a smaller format. 750ml is a commitment. If it came in smaller 350 or even 500, I would bet it would turn over better.

To me that is a perfect size for Dupont. I can have one with dinner and not have half a bottle left.
