I have to confess my ignorance with Sanglier and hard to find detail if not a FineWineCo member so I struggled to look into. Also not a big dozen buyer. I also am confessing to getting caught up in the hype .... a littlesomewhat surprised that this is still available - or is everyone busy chasing $10 Liquorland specials instead?

I'd bite at $60 for 6 bottles, not really sure what I would do with 12 bottles... especially if I didn't like it.
Rather pay $20 a bottle and grab some UZ truffle hound.
Actually Corbett... yeah okay will take the punt, thanks @qaz for helping me to continually fuel the economy...
Just walked past a BWS and saw the Blackwell at $56. Made me smile.
Along with wanting to drink good wine, no doubt a huge motivator for many is the thrill of the bargain/seeing a wine you hold at 370% mark up
I don't think they are loosing money at $15. Coles doesn't have the same buying power than a pizzeriaAgreed, although I wonder whether LL loses money on selling Blackwell @ $15 given CE mentioned a pizza shop couldn't get Blackwell via the wholesale channel @ less than $30.
Honestly, I have no ideas how much does St Hallet sell their wines to Coles but I have seen invoices from a big Australian wine distributor and I was amazed how cheap they can get the wines. I remember a $28 RRP Chardonnay that I was familiar with that costed the wine merchant $5 something.I thought rule of thumb was wholesale price at around 50% rrp. Even allowing for possible lower for bigger customers i'm betting 15 is below cost for the blackwell
Is there a good deal somewhere for Truffle hound or other UZ wine???? Loved their wines, especially their nero's
