The '08 Dom Perignon has finally made it to Northern Virginia. Picked up 6 bottles at the Fairfax Costco for $150 each on Sat, then went back on Sunday and picked up 6 more for a friend.

So I picked up a case of the '08 DP but the cellar tracker drinkability report is implying I don't have enough for the next five decades :(

How does Costco store their "nicer" wines? The DP and the 1st Growth BDX's I've seen are "glass case" only, and I haven't asked them if they just have them thrown in a box in the non-temp controlled office or if they are in a temp controlled unit in-store. Would be a pity to see some of those Chateau Margaux bottles sweating in the store.

My experience is they keep them locked up and typically come to me at close to a normal cellar temp - always cool to the touch but not refrigerated. Before they got to Costco, who knows...especially some of the older vintages that show up from time to time

Think I'll have to pass on that 2004 Margaux I saw last weekend then! Will be heading there tomorrow to check for DP and 2016 BDX.

I think the bottles at the wine section are mostly okay in that they're usually next to the produce and dairy sections hence cooler part of the warehouse. It's the stuff they lock up up front in the room that I worry about more, although I've never gotten them worse than typical Costco temperature which isn't that bad. That said, if I were to go deep on something older and expensive, I'd take one home and coravin a taste or pop a bottle first.
