You’d be better off to pay full price then have to spend time in Lubbock, trust me.
Ha!

When HdH retail was in its prime, it was pretty great. But our liquor stores mostly stink. Chicago is dominated by Binny's, a Total Wine type store with (as far as I can tell) inferior pricing. But there's no question that I'd rather put up with Binny's than move to Lubbock.

I’m in So Cal, but my Costco is awful. Hoping the San Clemente Costco is better as I’ll be spending a lot of time down there soon.

The one in Dana Point has good stuff AND it shares a parking lot with Pollo Loco!

2010 Malescot St. Exupery for $67 in Scottsdale.

Also 1 bottle left of 2015 Pontet-Canet for $104. Not the best deal but solid considering no shipping.

2008 Dom Perignon has landed in WI stores. The Appleton store got 4 6-packs yesterday. When I left they still had 3. $139.99/bottle, but I’m sure they’ll raise it. 06 and 09 still on the shelf st the same price.

19.97 in Mpls. I also have been adding some. It sounds like they did very well in 2016, so it will be enjoyable to compare the two vintages in 5 to 10 years without much investment. I heard the holdings changed a bit a few years ago with some plots traded, resulting in more Merlot, and less Cabernet in the blend.

Just tried a bottle of the 2016 Kirkland Signature Oakville Cabernet ($19).

It was a little tight the first night, but opened up more on the second. Very pleasant and balanced - great for the money, but not as big and rich as the 2016 Kirkland Signature Stags Leap.

Available at the Richmond, CA Costco as well. I picked up a bottle for a test drive, and it seems mighty soft for the appellation!

Assume it's the generic Les Champs Royaux?

Please post a note.

Will do, Kris!
Don't see the "Les Champs Royaux" on the label, or any other claim other than "Domaine William Fevre" There is some verbiage in English on the back label including "Estate Grown, Produced and Bottled by William Fevre" (Imported by Henriot) . If there is a level of his Chablis even more "generic" than the one you mention, I probably have that one!!! . . . maybe a Costco "exclusive" ?!?!
